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!

FIND MY PAST, the family history website, is FREE this weekend
Find my Past, the family history website is Free this weekend. Through July 4th 2016 when you establish an account you can access their database of records for FREE. For sure the price is right. This is a family history site I have not yet explored and I have heard it is heavy in U.K. (English, Irish etc) records but this weekend I am going to check it out. After all, the operative word here is FREE, isn't it?
