A Brief Family History

How we all got here...

Oscar Enge(bretsen) came to America from Norway.  Betsy Berntsen came to America at Ellis Island from Norway in year 1913.  She was 19 years old.  Oscar and Betsy met in America and married in 1916.  Together, they had five children.
 
The name Engebretsen implies that Oscar's father's first name may have been Engebret.  Long ago, children's surnames were that of thier father with either sen (for son) or datter (for daughter) added to the end.  Some ancestor's names may have also included the name of the farm that they worked on.
