It is time for the family to honor her and her background from Norway.
  22. 22. The Syljuåsen farm is where Andrew Simensen Sylliaasen grew up. He emigrated in 1867.
  23. 23.  Sylliaasen became Syljuåsen around 1900.  The Syljuåsen family name translates to “the tree on the hill”. The first syllable, “Sylju”, is the name of a fairly common deciduous tree which looks something like a medium sized birch or larch. The second phrase, 'ås', means hill, and the 'en' ending is the equivalent of the word 'the'. Thus, the name literally translates “the tree hill”.  The farm was purchased in 1845 and has been in the family ever since.
  24. 24.  August 2014  Visit the Syljuåsen family farm  Visit Syljuåsen AS, Construction Firm in Gjøvik  Visit Eidsvoll museum and celebrate the 200th Anniversary of Norway’s Constitution  Connect with distant relatives in Norway and American relatives on the tour
