Hello!

I can not find any Lars Martin (or Lars) Westick born 1882 in Fitjar bygdebok.
I can not find him in 1900 census for Fitjar, in confirmation register for Fitjar nor in emigrants from Fitjar over Bergen

Cold it be that he came from Vestvik on Bømlo or Sveio.
This is not so far from Fitjar, between Bergen and Stavanger.

sincerely
Helga Kallevik

Then I find Salamon Larson Vestvikjo farm in Fitjar bygdebok II:

Lars Nilson Vestvik (1810-1887) married to Martha Larsd. Mehammer, Stord (1816-1903).

Children:
1) Alis b. ? Married 1.Halstein K. Mehammer, Stord 2.married at Fitjar
2) Nils b. 1843, marriedVestvik Fitjar
3) Larine b. about 1845, married Vodl Fitjar
4) Kristian b. about 1848, married to Gurine Olsd. Blenes, Austevoll.
5) Lars b. 1852, married Vestbøstad, Fitjar
6) Salomon b. 1859, living in Bergen.
7) Brita b. about 1859, married at Fitjar.

Fitjar bygdebok has information about this family back to 1700.
(Lars Martin's great great grandfather, Lars Nilson, came from Haalandsdalen to Fitjar about 1754.
He married the widdow after the earlier owner of Vestvik.

Helga Kallevik
