This years Moller Gathering wast held at Roa and Gran in Hadeland north of Oslo on 12-13 August. We started Saturday at Roa with lunch and some physical activities. Later on we moved to Granavollen Guesthouse near The Sister Churches for dinner and social activities throughout the evening. Breakfast Sunday morning before we all went home.

We are waiting for pictures from the gathering. They will be published when we get them...
The 2015 Moller Gathering was on 21-23 August in Oslo and Hakadal. The first part was friday night get together at Ragnhild's and Dag's home in Oslo and the main arrangement was a good planned and accomplished program for saturday afternoon and evening at Aas farm and golf course in Hakadal north of Oslo. Thanks to Petter for managing the outdoor activities and Tore for the indoor evening banquet and finally Jorunn and Sten for the final quiz.
We have scanned two old pictures from previous gatherings. The oldest is about 50 years old when Jul and Sverre was still with us (1966?) and the other one is most probably from 1993. We are asking other family members to help us determine the exact year and will update this page when we are sure. You can click the pictures for bigger versions.
I have uploaded my pictures from the Family Gathering 9-11 August 2013 at Bjorli. The page treff 2013 can be reached from the Read more link below this text. I am sorry the text is in Norwegian only.
Many thanks to the arrangement commitee "3J and one S" for the good arrangement and also thanks to all participants for the successful gathering. We send our greetings to those who could not come and hope we will be seeing you next time.
The family's oldest, Inge Møller, had his 90th birthday on March 19th 2012. The anniversary was celebrated with family and friends in Stathelle Saturday 17th.
This year's family gathering ("Møllertreff") was successfully arranged 12-14 August at the camp site Fjordglimt in Bamble, Telemark county. The site was a perfect place for a gathering, nice facilities located on the coast near Kragerø where our ancestors settled when coming up from Denmark. Even the weather was on our side. The main day of the event was Saturday gathering about 60 family members. The arrangement committee - the "Bamble gang" - had prepared for a "family workshop", an informativ car drive route, and a tasteful dinner. Saturday evening ended with coffee and traditional Norwegian cakes and pies.

It all started with the gatherings og close family and friends by Jul and Sverre Møller each year the 11th of November to celebrate the "Day of our Home" at their house Kleiva, Lillevann in Oslo. Liv and Jan-Fredrik have sent us some words about this and set up the list of gatherings since 1985.
Mette has set up a family tree in Excel and Nils-Kristian has prepared it for web presentation. To find a usable format took some experimenting and I might find a better way later, Nils-Kristian says. The purpose of the tree is to illustrate the connections between current family members, hence not going further back than the brothers from Kragerø. This version has no years of birth or deaths. That may come later. Send a mail to Nils-Kristian if you have comments to the tree.
The Digital Archives is a public service from the National Archives of Norway. I made a search for Julie maiden name Arstad, sais Nils-Kristian, and found what I already knew that she was born in Kristiania (former name of Oslo, capital of Norway) in 1893. I also knew her father came from the Stange area where I now live but that was all.
The archive tells me her father was Kristian Simensen Arstad born in Stange parish in 1853, and his father again was Simen Gundersen born in 1813 also in Stange. So the link is revealed but the remaining part is to find the farm or house "Bakken" where Kristian obviously grew up before moving to Kristiania.
I also searched for Sverre Møller in the Digital Archives, sais Nils-Kristian, and have so far found data from the 1900 census. Data from the 1910 census have now been released so further searches will be performed.
