Hello, and welcome to Hugo Øien´s genealogy pages.

My site is based on my closely related family - Øien (Oien) /Altmann and Dalsbø (Dalsbo) /Østensen  (Ostensen) in the Tromsø-region of Northern Norway, but with branches to Switzerland and USA for Øien/Altmann.

You will also find a wide range of inmarried families.

At my website you will find limited data and pictures of persons over the age of 60, and no such data for age under 60. Such data is stored at my private database.

Through a number of years  Hege Altmann Unhjem contributed very much to the database is so large. (See some of her art here. )

She has done a great job on the Altmann-family, including finding and getting in contact with relatives in the U.S. and Canada.

With regard to the Altmann family is the number of names obtained from sources in the immediate family and from the booklet "Slekten Altmann og sirkelen rundt," and with extra help from the database to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church) in Salt Lake City, Utah .

The documentation back to Balthasar Altmann (b. 1621), from Ennenda in Switzerland, is reasonably secure. But further back before 1621, data are only fetched from the database Mormon Church, and is therefore somewhat more uncertain.

Personal data is only annual figures, and pictures of / by people over 60 years, put out from my database to the web site.

Please give me feedback for errors or if you have updates. You may Contact me here.

At "Dokumentar" and "Billedgalleri" to the left you will find, in addition to genealogical info, also a lot of info from my anchestors activity at the Arctic Ocean islands (Greenland, Jan Mayen and Bjørnøya / Bear Island) from around  1920-until ca 1945.
