Ole Lysne had two families, one with his first wife, Randine in Norway. Ole’s second wife, Anna and their family immigrated to New Ulm, Minnesota with several children in 1856. One boy perished in the U.S.–Dakota War, and others moved to Canada and around Minnesota. Robin Lysne will be sharing her three books on her Norwegian ancestors. Robin Lysne’s book series tells the story of Ole and Randine, who was a midwife, in Norway in the 1820’s and 30’s. Robin Lysne, is a descendent of Ole Lysne, and hopes to meet Ole and Anna’s family!
