Thank you all for providing the info on Johns parents etc. I've been trying to find out where John and Barbara came from as I would also like to visit there one day!!!  I don't think you can be more a viking if you come from an island in a fjord  ;D

I agree - have you looked at the island on Google Earth - it looks wild and amazing?   I would love to go there; as you say, you don't come much more Viking than that.  In fact it reminds me that my daughter has never been particularly interested in my FH research, until I discovered the Norwegian connection.  The fact that she was descended from Vikings suddenly got her very excited.   ;D
