Welcome to our
This webpage was created to keep everyone
updated on Bjerregaard / Byergo / Bjergo / Bjerggaard events and
history. Everyone is welcome to e-mail me pictures and stories
about family members. I will post as soon as possible. If you
have any of the above listed ancestry, or interest in this
site, you are always welcome.
A family is a
domestic group of people, or a number of domestic groups
affiliated by blood or by a variety of legal ties such as
marriage, domestic partnership, adoption, surname and in some
cases slavery as was the case in the Roman Empire. Families
have some degree of kinship.
In Denmark, our ancestor, Niels Nielsen
built and owned a large farm called Bjerregaard. We took on
the name of our land, like most Europeans at the time. For the
American's, when their ship arrived in Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania, our surname was then changed to Byiargor, the
English phonetic spelling (pronounced Be-Air-Gore) . After
arrival to Utah, the American branch of the family divided,
half stayed in Utah and half moved to Missouri. The Utah
family assumed the actual spelling of Bjerregaard and the
Missouri family changed to the correct pronunciation, Byergo.
(pronounced Be-Air-Gore and Be-air-go) There has been
other family before and after, that have made other spelling
changes. Most using the name of the farm as a basis.
The Copenhagen Bjerregaard's have not been
linked to the Fovlum Bjerregaard's to date.
