I have found a couple locations where people by the name of Jordal reside, or facilities with that name. The photo above is where I believe my family is from in Norway. Another reason for believing this is the source of my father's name sake is that my great grandmother's maiden name is Boyum. And, just a short distance north from here was another farm, that now is a Camping and Cabin destination, just north of the end of the fjord going north from here. So, it stands to reason that my great grandfather's and great grandmother's families lived in close proximity, here in Norway.
Below, you will find a Google Street Map of the same area, or the Jordal Farm that you can view 360 degrees.
Below that map is a video from a drone taking the viewer up the river valley and back down to a beautiful panoramic view of the full fjord.
The link below is to the source of the photo above. Because I haven't been able to go over to Norway (yet), I am reliant on information and photos from other sources. I am grateful for Pierre Vanderhout's Travel Blog for this fantastic photo from across the fjord of the Jordal Farm.
This is a drone video of the Jorddalselva i Fjærland, which means the Jordal River Valley in Fjærland.
I do believe this is where my father's family is from. My great grandmother's family is from the same area, just up the fjord, in the Boyum area.
Please watch this video with special interest in the very end. I believe it will impress most everyone!
