In representing the Koppang family line after Sheriff Paul Koppang (1799-1878), Trysil, Hedmark (pictured at left), please contact me at email@example.com
Genealogy Index prepared by Kolbjørn Koppang (1881-1943) in 1942, with subsequent updates, is available through the Deichman Library in Oslo. (Search related registry Koppang) Here the family is well documented and followed up through the centuries to the present day.
The Koppang Genealogical Register is continously updated and we are seeking contact with people who are associated with our family and who have not previously been registered.
Marks were the owner insignias that in ancient times were fitted to houses, tools and artifacts. Marks followed the farm and its owner, and were composed of simple geometric shapes. Marks were also used as signatures of people who could not write. Often marks were inserted in the owner's seal, and there is also heraldry of non-noble generations seals or crests.
