Welcome to the official




On the 20th of September in the year 1880, a 20 year-old Lorentz Severin Lorentzen married Elizabeth Nilsdatter in Tromso, Norway.  Little did they know at the time that this was the beginning of a huge family that would spread throughout the United States and several other countries. 

Within the "walls" of this website, we will attempt to show as much of the ancestry of Lorens and Elizabeth as we can find using all the resources we have available.  We will also give the full list of the descendants of Lorens and Elizabeth... the founders of this ever-expanding family.
