In Reply to: Henjum in Leikanger Norway by Per Henjum of 6

I am just beginning research on the Henjum name. I want to complete the heritage for my children and grandchildren. I understand that their ancestor (my ex-husband's grandfather) came to the United States sometime near 1870-90 and took the name Henjum because it was the area he came from. I don't know that is the truth but it was told to me by an uncle. Knute Henjum came from Norway and died in 1932 in Oregon. I was happy to see your posting on the Internet. I was searching for a town or province named Henjum. Everything except your posting was in Norweign which I cannot read.
