I find that within the family they used both Halvorsen and Halversen. Gerry Matthew'sson makes a very good point; it is the sound that is important. Strew the vowels where you will. Remember: the concept of standardized spelling (English - standardised) is a very modern or recent invention and is still not much accepted.
