Christ Sydness

Fargo, North Dakota

is with the Sydness & Olsen Company. He was born on January 6, 1865 in Indviken, Nordfjord and emigrated to America in 1885 to Deerfield, Wisconsin. He came to Fargo in 1889 and has lived here since. He has been with the hardware store since 1912 in partnership with Andrew Olsen.

His wife, Marianne Bergan, is from Modum. They have two sons, Alfred and Morten. Morten is a police Sergeant and Alfred is a Commercial Traveler.

A most interesting Nordfjording man and a good Norwegian man shall he be for a long time. The participants in the Nordfjordingers meeting in Fargo will long come to remember where the courteous amusing Sydness was a toastmaster and organizer. No wonder that this man is popular and has many friends.
