Hallo! I am Dagfinn Kristiansen, a resident of Fredrikstad, Norway,
where I was born in 1957. I am searching for the only relatives of mine
I know to have left Norway, my two granduncles who left for Australia about 1910.

My grandparents:
Inga Sofie Simensen, born 20th of August 1879 and Johan Anton Kristiansen, born 27th of June 1876.
They were married in 1902 and lived on a little farm called Hovland in the community Råde (Raade)
between Fredrikstad and Moss, approx. 50 miles to the south of Oslo, at the east side of the Oslo Fjord.

My father:
Johan, was the youngest of 12 children. He told me frequently about his
two granduncles who sailed for Australia about 1910. My father died in 1993 at the age of 69.

They were;
Mr Oskar Didrik Wister
b. July 30th 1884  -  d. June 1965
Mr Olaf Kristiansen
b. in 1882  -  d. ?
Oskar Didrik Vister (Possibly Oscar Didrik Vister) was brother of my fathers mother,
Olaf Kristiansen was brother of my grandfather 
This photo was taken just before they
both left Norway for Australia around 1910 
I will be happy to recieve any news of or
any connection to distant relatives in Australia. Please feel free to contact me in Norway.

Kjære gjester og kontakter i Australia.
Jeg ble tipset om den australske telefonkatalogen
som ligger på nettet. 28 personer med etternavn Kristiansen og 3 personer med Wister viste seg dessverre ikke å være i slekt med meg. Men skam få den som gir seg, så vi står på igjen.
