Who am i?
I am a Christian.
I am an American.
I am of Norwegian descent on my mom’s side,
Scot and Irish descent on my dad’s.
I love Norway and all things Norwegian, except Lutefisk.
I am a Knitter.
I am a mother, wife, sister, niece and friend.
i bake things.
i love to read, mostly historical fiction.
I am looking for Norway, her history, her stories, and her people who were my ancestors.
I hope to find more than their names, of which i have many, thanks to kind distant cousins in Norway, who traced names back to the 1200’s and so generously shared them with me. Mange Tak to them!!!
Who were these ancestors of mine? What were their hopes and dreams? What were their days like? Their homes? Their work? Their games?
And did they knit?
