Jarle Rosseland

I am a relative of Svein Rosseland and was looking at his art when I found yours. My family emigrated from Kvam, Vikoy, about one mile from Norheimsund at the end of Hardanger Fjord about 1849. Many of the family here in the US have visited before the farm was sold to build many homes. They (the Rosselands) built a church in Wilmar Minnesota exactly like the one they built near the Norway farm in1838.

I'm also a descendent of the Rosselands and have been poring over our family tree trying to track down the location of this very church in Norheimsund for our family trip to Norway. Do you know more specifically where it is? The notes in my book say Vikäy church.
