Nils Rosing Bull, min bestmors far

I was named after my uncle, Nils Bull Young, who was named after his grandfather, Nils Rosing Bull, who was named after another distant relative of the same name, on back to around 1690. I know this because this man here, my greatgrandfather, was chief of the bureau of census in the Norwegian government and thus had access to family records going back to the 16th Century, just after the Black Death had cut a path through Europe. I'm lucky to have the 1936 and 1976 edition of the book that this man wrote.
