Hi Denise,
Looks like we might be related. I've been using web site to research my family, and ran across your family. Below is the lineage:

Christian Petersen-Guri Olsdatter Fauskerud
Mathea Christiansen
Karen Mathiassen Bakke Mahlum
Leif Trygve Mahlum
Sandra Mahlum Birdsong
Troy Birdsong-ME

Christian Petersen-Guri Olsdatter Fauskerud
Peder Bakken
Einar Petersen Bakke
Agnes Bakke
(your parent)

If this is correct, you and I 4th cousins! You can find this information if you search for Christian Petersen at with the code: KLVM-YSG

One question I do have is, how did Peder acquire the name Bakken? The naming conventions in Norway would suggest he should be named Christiansen. His siblings were named Christiansen or Christiansdatter. I suspect it has to do with a farm he worked at. My great grandmother Karen had the name Bakke to so that's why I'm interested. Looking forward to hearing from you. My email is

Hi Denise - Thank you for the family links. I also transferred Adrian to you, I figured with the wonderful photo you added to the memorial you had to be related! Cindy

RE: Anna Palm
Updates complete. Thought it was strange that her maiden name was different than her parents, however I received the following email in March: Email address of person making suggestion: This suggestion was submitted by someone who was not logged in to Find A Grave, so we can not provide a link to their contributor profile. Their suggestion:-------------------------Anna Mabel (Fordahl) Palm daughter of Einer P. and Oline M. (Hellevang) Bakke wife of August Palm.
No I am not a family member. Thanks for the correction.
