Here They Are
I have a Petterborg database, in my genealogy software program, with names, dates and places but I am not sure where I got it. I am using the information as a foundation and a place to jump from into more detailed research.
My goal is to show original records to back up any names, dates or places.
When you read this, if you have anything to share, please contact me via my contact information at the bottom of the blog.
I have set up this blog so that each of Ole and Maria's nine children will have their own separate page. I am hoping this will be an easier way to track them and for others to find and share information.
Oh, how I wish I could have known and talked to these people. They have gone from names on a computer screen or family group sheet to someone who is real. Someone who I am related to, someone who sacrificed a lot for each other and for others who would follow. I feel a real connection to them but at the same time, I feel a real void because I don't have a lot of information. I look forward to the day when I can meet them and I can give them a hug and thank them for what they did for me.
