Felicity Svendsen Hi there,

I am married to Allen Trevor Svendsens' son Matthew and I am searching for information on the family. I have as far as Allens father Gunnah who came on a ship from Norway and broke his ankle (not sure if it was in port in Australia or on the ship on the way over) and stayed behind here in Australia. Prior to that I have trouble navigating the Norwegian records, and I can also find no record of Allen's mother.

If anyone has any information they can share I would be forever grateful.

Thanks
Felicity
