Trevland, Finnøy, Rogaland County, Norway

The Travland* family originated from Trevland, parish of Finnøy, island of Boknafjord in the county of Rogaland, Norway. 

Here is a map of the area.





























Here is a map showing the island of Boknafjord and location of 'Trevland'.

*I have seen several variations of the spelling of Travland, including Trevland, Trævland, Travaland and Traveland.

    1. Has far as I know my son and myself are the last Travlands from South Texas. I've been telling my wife how one day I want to take them to Norway to see were my ancestors came from. Ole John Travland was my Great grandfather, son of Lauritz Johan. Which line of the family tree are ya'll from?
