About me

My name is Martin Roe Eidhammer. I am a Norwegian living in Norway. I am married to Inger Lise and we have three kids aged 19 to 27.

By profession, I am a psychiatric nurse.

I grew up in Vestnes in Romsdal (Møre og Romsdal county) and we are now living in Skjevik, east of the town Molde (M&R county)

I got into genealogy more than twenty years ago when both my parents passed away much too early. Still, at a fairly young age, I found myself being the oldest living member of our closest family. One night my brothers and I sat and talked about our ancestry and I realized how little we knew. That was the spark that ignited my interest for genealogy. Since then I have been working on my own genealogy and I have also been helping others.

I feel very fortunate that my wife shares this interest and that we can help each other. I have also had the pleasure of helping other people with their family search. Many of them foreigners looking for ancestors in Norway.

I find genealogy very interesting and by writing these articles I learn a lot myself.

As you probably can tell, English is not my native language. Sometimes I have American friends proofread my writings, other times not. I do constantly work to improve my English.

I have traveled through many US states and I spend a year in Arkansas City, Kansas as an exchange student. While there I gave a number of public speeches about Norway. Since then, and especially since the Internet came, I have had the pleasure of communicating with a large number of foreigners looking for their roots in Norway.

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have comments or questions. From time to time I take on genealogical work for people I meet online. Feel free to ask me for help. I do this for fun and as a labor of love.
