My maternal grandparents, Paul and Dagmar Sevald were Ellis Island immigrants coming from Norway and settling in Chicago, Illinois in the early 1920's. I've been researching my family tree in earnest for over twenty years and in this blog I post photos, documents, stories, memories and thoughts about my Norwegian ancestry, family and my life growing up Scandinavian-American in Chicago. WELCOME!

Grace Sevald - High School Graduation
A "shaky leaf" hint on Ancestry is often just a distraction for me but this time it looks as though my mother's Chicago high School yearbook was scanned.
My Mom, Grace Sevald, graduated from Kelvyn Park High School in Chicago.
She was seventeen years old.
She didn't get that particular prayer answered. Mom entered the working world.
