|Sarah Noel||RE: My Great-Great Grandmother was Gyrid Lindebrękke (|
Hi Sharon! I'm so happy you replied! :) Who was your father? Since I have this beautiful chest, I will send you a picture of it, its the one they carried over from Norway and a gorgeous photo album. Do you mean there aren't a lot of Leque's left? I have a VERY VERY old photo of Anna and N.P (its kind of faint and faded) but they were young. Its amazing. I also have a lot of photos of the Solheim, Sproneim, and obviously Lindebrękke families. :) I'm still trying to figure out some of the ties on ancestory...kind of hard because the Norwegians changed their last names due to the land they were living on at the time. I haven't been to Norway but really would like to make a visit...pretty darn expensive to get there. Especially to get to Ulvik...you have to take a barge and I believe fly into Oslo. I have some old photos of the Brakanes Hotel (which did you know our family owned for over 100 years)? My great-great-great Grandfather Hans Lindebrękke and Marta Hjeltnes/Brakanes ran it along with their grand children (Sara, Gjert) that stayed in Norway and didn't come to the US. It is still functioning and a well-known hotel...I believe was sold to a hospitality company. I'm on ancestory.com and my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm so glad we connected! I'm making it my mission to find a lot of these families because these are beautiful photographs and I'm sure somebody would LOVE to have a copy. Chat soon! Sarah Noel

Thank you so much for posting all of these pictures. I have Gyrid's chest that she brought over from Ulvik and it contains a lot of old photos, as she had a beautiful photo album. There are several pictures of the Leque Family in there as well. I know that Gyrid "Julia", my great-great grandmother was close with Anna "Maria". I would be happy to scan and send you the Leque photos and some of the Lindebrękke photos as well. I have a postcard from Sara Lindebrękke to Susie Olson which has a photo of the Brakanes Hotel in 1948. :) So I guess we are distant, distant relatives. But I have so many amazing photos of the Leques!!!

Hello Sharon! So happy to find the contributions of Gustave and Marie Schreiber and Adolph and his wife. I am the greatgranddaughter of Gustave & Marie. Their daughter Ida (Edith) Schreiber was my grandmother. I would love to chat with you. Perhaps we can exchange some family info, if you are interested. Looking forward to hearing from you, Sherry

Hi! Sharon, sorry for the delay in transferring this listing to you. I had computer problems and was shut down for a while with a virus. Let me know if there are any others you need. Ann
