Kondal was most likely born at his mothers small farm Sagbraaten,
which belonged to Ensrud farm in Nordre Høland, Akershus
municipality. His mother worked as a maid and her name was
Oliane Christensdatter Sagbraaten. Kondal´s father
was bachelor and farmer Christian Hellesen Østereng from
Bergsjø in Søndre Høland. Kondal´s parents never got married.
The picture you see here is initially a group photo of the workers

- When he was about four years old, in 1875, he lived at Skjelfoss,
as a foster-son 009, located west in Aurskog - Høland on the border to Fet municipality.
Exaclty when he came to Skjelfoss and when he moved from there is uncertain.
But we do know that he lived together with Erik Christensen from Høland and Berte Olsdatter from Aurskog.
They had three sons, three daughters and another stepson apart from
Kondal which was the youngest in the crowd of children. One of the reasons
why Kondal came to Skjelfoss as a foster-son was that his mothers brother,
Erik Christensen,was the small-holder there.
Oliana worked nearby as a maid 008 at the farm Ersrud in Fet in the same period.
This indicates that she and Kondal had a good connection.
Another person important in Oliane´s life was Andreas Hansen
born 01.12.1834 9 at Fjerdingen of Ramstad in Fet.
In the 1870´s Andreas worked as a farm-hand 010 at the farm Gran in Fet.
The near relationship between Andreas and Oliane lead to a marriage
in Fet Church 22.03.1878 4.
Later that year they had a son, christened Ole Ingvald who was
born 10.06.1878 27 at home on the farm Løchen where they lived.
Before the summer in 1885 Kondal, his mother, stepfather and half-brother moved to Blaker and 10.07.1885 13 Oliane gives birth to a little girl named Jørga Eliagna.
Kondal`s mother and stepfather lives on the farm Mork where Andreas works as a cattleman.
By Kondal´s confirmation in Blaker 03.10.1886 10 they all live on Mork Mellom and Andreas is now working as a carpenter.
Somewhere between 1886 and 1900 008 Oliane, Andreas, Ole Ingvald and Jørga Eliagna moves to the farm-hand building at Øverland Østre in Bærum.
Kondal works as a farm-hand at the farm Mork when he 21.12.1891 4 becomes
a father for the first time.
A son, christened Karl Kristiansen Ødegaarden is brought in to this world.
His mother is a small-farm daughter named Rebekka Guneriusdatter Ødegaarden,
the small-farm Ødegaarden belongs under Jødal Lille.
In the year 1900 they live in the at farm-hand building 007 Mork Mellom together
with Karl´s half-sister Ragna Helene.
Kondal gets married 30.09.1892 36 to Hanna Mathilde Andreasdatter from Eidsvoll.
They move in together at Sneisrud.
Hanna Mathilde is born 17.07.1870 124 at Eidsvoll and has a daughter named
Hanne Sofie Nilsen, born 23.05.1889 from an earlier relationship.
Later the same year Kondal and Hanna Mathilde have their first and only child together.
Ole was born at Eidsvoll 05.11.1892 115 and christened 25.12.1892.
Less then two years later 22.07.1894 26 Hanna Mathilde dies from consumption in their home at Sneisrud.
Three years later 09.09.1897 15 Kondal gets married for the second time to Petra Amalie Gustavsdatter.
She was born 02.11.1873 70 at Garsjøen in Hurdal but she now lives at Aalborg in Eidsvoll.
