In memory of Søren Hunskaar (1859 - 1934)

In the census for 1900, Søren Hunskaar, his wife Nelle and five children, Anne (1892-1990), Mads (1895-1966), Synneve (b. 1897), Klaus (b. 1899) and Leif (1902-1987), are all registered at the farm "Tinghaugen" in Sogn and Fjordane.

Søren Hunskaar is a farmer, blacksmith - and maintaining a sawmill.

In the parish register from 1902, Søren's last name is Madsen. When or why his name was changed into Hunskaar, is unknown.

A thing or "ting", as in the farm name "Tinghaugen", was the governing assembly in Germanic societies, made up of the free people of the community and presided by lawspeakers, meeting in a place called a thingstead.
