These are entries for the brothers of my great-great-grandfather Jens Rasmussen in the 1910 census of Norway. By this time the Rasmussen family had taken to using Østrem [the name of the farm they had lived on in Lindås] as the family name. They were living on Ryum farm (some family members then used the last name Ryum) on the island of Vikna, near the town of Rørvik, Norway.
