Gudrun emigrated on 11 November 1896, at the age of 15. I cannot fathom how brave she must have been or maybe just how desperate she was. To board a ship and leave her homeland during the dead of winter. She must have been a very strong woman. I never got the privilege of knowing her, because she passed away years before I was born. Gudrun passed away after gall bladder surgery when a blood clot when to her brain. in those days they did not use stockings to protect against blood clots.

She emigrated as a servant to the Glenn W. Traer family in Hyde Park, Chicago, Illinois. My mother told me that she came as a governess. 

Gudrun married Edward Francis Linderman on 11 September 1902 in Winona, Minnesota

Norwegian Christmas Christkindl

Norwegian Christmas Traditions and Food

Juletid (Christmas time) is a celebration of traditions and family in Norway. With the fall of winter snow and the wonderful displays of Northern Lights, Norwegians sit round their fire places, dance around the Christmas tree, enjoy rich food and share julefryd (Christmas cheer) with family, friends and in their communities. At this special time of year we are happy to share the Norwegian Christmas with you. We hope you will celebrate with us by having a little bit of Norway in your Christmas.

Wunderscapes Travel

In July I will be leaving for a month-long trip to Croatia and Italy, but until then I won’t have some new pictures to share.  Instead, I’ll keep posting photos from my travels last year.  Today I’ve got some more pictures from Scandinavia that I feel should be shared. Enjoy!

My Maternal Great Grandmother, Gudrun Ivara (Lund) Linderman emigrated from Namsos, Lufthavn, North Trondelag, Norway in 1896

Harry, Gladys, Gudrun (Lund) Linderman, baby Irene Linderman

Namsos is a small municipality in Norway, in Nord-Trondelag County. It is in the area of Namdalen. The administrative hub of the municipality is Namsos, a small town. Some of the other small villages in the municipality are Spillum, Skomsvoll, Ramsvika, Klinga, and Bangsund. The municipality has a population of roughly 13,000, and it covers almost 300 square miles. 

Namsos is a very important trading destination in Norway, and it has a lot of recreational and cultural hotspots for tourists. In the late summer, you can go to the Namsos Country Fair, which is a shopping event for the whole Namdalen area. You can also see the Nord-Trondelag Art Gallery and the Concert Hall in the town. The gallery has permanent as well as temporary exhibitions of artists from both Norway and around the world. 

There are several different salmon fishing rivers within an hour of the town. There are even more fishing destinations up in the mountain lakes and along the coastline. If you ascend to the top of Mount Klompen, you can get a great view of the whole city of Namsos. 

There is a big outlet that sells candles of all colors, sizes, and shapes, and it is located in an old train station. 

Name 

The first half of the name comes from a local river called Namsen. The last part of ostranslates to “mouth of a river”. 

History 

In 1846, Namsos was founded at the mouth of the Namsen river in Overhalden,, in the Saevik area. It was created as a distinct municipality, with roughly 600 inhabitants, and it was distinct from Vemundvik. 

In 1865, Namso became an official parish in the Church of Norway. A formal decision was made to create a church in the city in 1859. The construction was finished in 1859. The parish was created in 1865, and Saevik and Vemundvik were sub-parishes. 

Some parts of Vemundvik near to the town of Namos were afterward integrated into the city limits on several occasions. 

The town’s location near the river and the big forests made the town a great place for sawmills. Almost a dozen sawmills were operating at their peak, but there is only one sawmill that’s still standing: Moelven Van Severen. You can also visit the Norwegian Sawmill Museum at Spillum just to the south of the town. 

Namsos has a swimming pool, called Oasen, and it was built inside of a mountain.
