My Great Grandmother had a sister named Lina that emigrated to your Country May 29, 1885 from Norway, Ytre Rendalen.

I have a copy of an envelope that is dated in 1914 and mailed from Central City to Rendalen in Norway

Lina / Lena Dortinusdaughter Goldberg is her name and she lived in Central City, postbox 22, Colorado, America. She has proably married since she left her homeland.

Are there anyone out there who knew here grandchildren or children or are in any way related to Lina, who has her birthday Nov 18, 1865, I will be so pleased. Thank you!

Thank you so far! This is exciting! And it is my Lina!

I am going to The States in 2009 and it would be a good thing to vivit Central City and I do hope to see the place where she is burried.

Its 30 years since I was in The States and my english is a little bit rusty. But I do hope you understand what i mean.

And, thanks again!

NOW I HAVE FOUND THIS. I FOUND I THINK THE EARNEST / ERNEST. I FOUND AN EARNEST P GOLDBERG IN LOS ANGELAS, CA IN THE 1930 CENSUS. IT SHOWED A DAUGHTER NAMED AFTON / ALTON BORN IN UTAH, AGE 12. IT SHOWS EARNEST PARENTS WERE FROM NORWAY. SO I WENT BACK TO THE 1920 CENSUS IN UTAH TO SEE IF I COULD FIND THEM. I FOUND AN ALTON (FEMALE) AS AN INMATE. THAT IS HOW THEY SHOW WHEN SOMEONE IS IN AN ORPHAN'S HOME...THERE WAS ALSO ANOTHER CHILD NAMED GOLDBERG. SO I DID A SEARCH FOR ERNEST IN UTAH. HE IS IN THE SAME AREA AND IT SHOWS HE'S DIVORCED. HERE IS THE INFO ON ERNEST

Sorry, I lost the exact URL, but if you google "Jefferson county co genweb", you will find the genealogy site for Jefferson county Colorado. Click on cemeteries and click on Golden Hill cemetery (Jewish cemetery). There are a bunch of Goldburgs listed there. Maybe check out the other cemeteries listed.
