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!
Happy Mother's Day to my Grandmas!
