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!
*Please note the disclaimer at the end of this pedigree, Thanks!
PLEASE NOTE: As with any family tree you find, please don't just copy without checking it yourself. I am an amateur family historian/genealogist and although I strive for accuracy I make you no absolute guarantees. In the preceding pedigree I have found substantiation with census and vital records and other reliable sources, to say without hesitation, I believe these are my true ancestors. For the sake of brevity, I do not list those sources here but if you believe we share ancestry you are more than welcome to view all I have found on my well documented private Ancestry.com tree (see contact info on the left side of this blog). My family trees will always be a work in progress. If you do find any inaccuracies in, or have additions to, my family trees, please let me know. Thank you!
