Hi Connie - I am a member of the Lodoen family. My great grandfather was Paul Lodoen, and his wife was Anne (or Anna?) Braaten. I think my great grandfather moved to Canada in the 1920s and my great grandmother followed him here, and married him. They were both from Norway of course. I'd be very interested to hear how you think the LiaBraaten family and the Lodoen family could be related. I don't know a thing about who Anne Braaten's parents were or where she came from.
