LINKHAUSEN (Germany>Norway)

Meaning/Pronunciation: Pronunciation: Link-how-zen Meaning: German for "Left House."

Origin: Apparently German, though I didn't know that until I looked up the name to find out the origin. Before that, I assumed it Norwegian, despite not sounding too Norwegian, because that was all I knew for this family.

Variations: Linchausen, which I also just saw today.

Relation to me: This is my mother's father's father's father's father's mother.

i: Linkhausen, Leonharde, 1809 – 1846, Norway; Johan Petter Bordevick, 7 sons, 4 daughters

ii: Linkhausen, Ditlev Anton, 1783 – 1845, Germany ?, Henrikke Oline Brunn, 1 daughter known

Looking for:
Well, I just found a tree that has more info on this branch, though I haven't had a chance to contact them properly yet, but if so, it will extend several more generations back for me, which is very exciting. I did not know that both sides of this family were basically from Germany, aside from Johan's mother. Should be interesting to see what I find about her side…

For those interested, the site I found is here.

About this blog

This blog is maintained by two sisters who have had a life long interest in geneology.
Mika writes here mostly about our family (Hansen, Hillinger, Bordewick, Park, etc), and her search for more information.
Shannon mostly uses this space as a place to make the many stories written about and by her husband's family (Holly, Walker, Walpole, etc) available to the rest of the family, present and future.

Our blog is named Oh Spusch! mostly because Shannon is bad at naming things. The first post I put up includes a story about the time Walker's great grandfather took his whole family out to see a play and the littlest kept saying "Oh! Spusch!" No one ever figured out what she meant by that.
