I am an ancestor of Hans Samuelsen and Otte Hansen. My grandfather has done quite a bit of research on this part of our family. I'd love to talk with you and share what we know. I don't know about the paintings but I will talk with him about it. Contact me: benjaminm@edmartin.com.

Does anyone know anything about an old portrait of a priest named Hans Samuelsen Schreuder. This man was at one time in the mid 1600s a parish priest at Bergen Domkirke. The portrait was painted by a well-known artist Elias Fiigenschoug who also painted the son Otte Hansen Schreuder. According to an article in Store Norsk Leksikon concerning the artist Fiigenschoug, both of these portraits were hanging in the Stadsbygd church in Rissa at least as late as the 1920's. Norsk Folkemuseum has a copy of the portrait of Otte, but not of Hans. I am hoping to find the present location ofthe portrait of Hans or failing that just a copy of the portrait. Does anyone have any information? Thank you.
