This map is from the University of MN map collection (Wilson Library). It shows the family farm name that Iver took as a surname when he came from Norway to America in 1890. Typically, under Scandinavian patronymics, Iver's surname would be Gunderson - son of Gunder. This practice was abandoned at the turn of the twentieth century. The farm lies about 30 Kilometers north of Oslo in the county of Oppland near the town of Lunner.
