What was his birthdate? I have Jun 1830 from the 1900 US Federal Census. Can you get a day on that? Do you know who his parents are?
How do I enter his name in the record? would it be firstname = John, middlename = Gundersen, last name = Skjestadstuen? I've seen a LOT of different spellings on this now and I am confused about what is right.
And equally as confused on how to enter where he is from in Ancestry. Would it be Ostre Gausdal, Oppland, Norway? How do I say where he is from correctly?
In the 1900 US Federal Census it says that there was an aunt to Martines spouse, but doesn't say which side of the family and puts ditto marks for her last name which they spelled Shaggestad (incorrect) so it's not clear which side she was on, if she was Martine's aunt Engeband or Ole Gunderson's aunt Engeband (Shaggestad evidently...they just drew a line for the last name, but under John Shaggestad...like ditto the last name (implying to me that her last name is some form of Shaggestad rather than gunerson even though the question is relationship to head...which would be Martines spouse Ole Gunderson. http://search.ancestry.com/iexec?htx=View&r=an&dbid=...
