2 11 Apr 1987: While on a business trip to Norway, I drove by the farm of Vevla and Holmestad and then by the farm of Lovbakke. I noticed people standing outside and so stopped and talked to them Bjorne and Marie Lund and daughter Bjorg.

Berget is a place on the Vevla farm. Nils Evensen Berget worked for a man named Jon Ilseng. Jon had a son named Simen who had three sons: Jon, Even, and Kunst. Jon had a son named Simen who owned the farm when I visited in 1987.
