Members of the Korsnes family in Norway

Members of the Korsnes family.  On a hill in the background is an area marked where Vikings held their Ting.  A Ting was the basic unit of government and law which goes back maore then a thousand years.  This is where a court gathered to resolve disbutes or punish crimminal behavior.


Here I am with a red, white and blue jacket.  The tall man in a Navy Chiefs uniform is my boss John, and the other is a teacher.  Both men were CPO's in the Navy and are retired.  The highschool where we work honors their employees, who are veterans, each year on Veterans Day.

Anne Korsness Virginia National Guard

My daughter-in-law Anne is with the Virginia National guard .  She is a mechanic on a Black Hawk helocopter and plesently stationed in Baghdad.


This is the Korsnes farmstead located in Nord Trondelag Norway.  About 1030 AD, a large cross was erected at the point of the finger of land.  The cross served as a landmark for boats in the harbor.  Thus came the name Korsnes (spelled with one s in Norway).  Kors is cross, nes is finger of land.


This is the Air Force ROTC colorguard at Seminole High School on Veteran's Day.


My dog Thor is a mix of golden retriever and lab.  His favorite passtimes are eating my lunch when I am not looking and digging in the mud when it rains.


Although most of the people who immingrated to this country from Norway have settled in MN and IA, this branch of the Korsness family gave up the land of ice and snow for the land of sun and palm trees.
