This is the story of the descendants of Iver and Marit (Andersdtr) Bakke who owned a farm near Fåvang, Norway.  Iver and Maret never came to the United States but several of their children did and it is their stories I hope to tell on the following pages. You can get to the families by clicking on their names on the left menu. I hope to have a story for each of the people or couples. It is definitely a work in progress, so check back. But first, some things about the history of Norway and the Red River Valley. The following links go to pdf documents.
