My name is Tord Avsnes Sæle and I started this site.


I am a Norwegian from Bergen, living in Singapore. I have also recently spent 6 years in Houston, Texas. I got relatives from all over Norway and in many states in USA and Canada. 

Sæle is my fathers side of the family. The American version of this name is Selle.

Nordre Sæle(Northern Sæle) is in Øygarden parish on the west coast of Hordaland county, Norway. 

From 1840-1940  many persons emigrated to USA from Øygarden (from both Sæle and Halvorsen families), so I got a lot of relatives in USA.

Avsnes is my mothers mother side of the family.

Avsnes is a farm in Høyanger parish at the entrance of Vadheimsfjorden in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. 

Liavåg is my mothers fathers side of the family. So far this is where I run into many new surprises. due to the fact that the family come from all over North West and Northern Norway.

I try to document all persons and events in/from known sources.

Mainly Norwegian sources like the Digital Archive (Digitalarkivet) 

http://www.arkivverket.no/arkivverket/Digitalarkivet

Sources are the avaialbe Censuses (Folketeljing) and the Digitised parish registers (Scanna Kyrkjebøker).  And various "Bygdebøker"

The Censuses can be found here: http://arkivverket.no/eng/Digital-Archives 

The Digitised parish registers can be found here:
