This is to embarrass my parents. I love you Mom and Dad!
Here they are at prom – yes they were high school sweethearts. I came along 5 years later.
I think that this picture might be my Grandpa Don’s brother, Floyd. He was born in 1910. Does this look like it could have been taken in the early 30′s? He definitely looks a lot like my grandpa!
That is when we’re leaving Alaska for good and starting on our 6,000 mile journey to Savannah.
I have a lot of things planned for the trip. National Parks. Museums. Visiting family. And of course Genealogy.
The first few thousand miles of my trip are going to be genealogy-free, because I don’t have any ancestors that lived in the Yukon Territory, Alberta, Montana, or Wyoming.
But after our visit to family in Kansas, it starts.
I just bought a wireless card for my laptop. so I will be able to get onto the internet and blog as we drive.
I am really looking forward to this adventure!!!!
I decided to play along with Saturday Night Genealogy Fun at Randy Seaver’s blog, GeneaMusings.
If you want to party with the SNGF gang this week, then here is your task:
2) Tell us if you have had your mitochondrial DNA tested, and if so, which Haplogroup you
So, here it goes:
2. My mom, Donelle.
3. My grandmother, Eleanore Sonia Bergman (1922-1998)
4. My great-grandmother, Charlotta Eugenia Viktoria Klarstrom.(1888-1960)
5. My great-great grandmother, Christina Elisabeth Bennberg. (1845-1919)
6. My great-great-great grandmother, Christina Olsdatter. (born in 1816)
I have not had my DNA tested yet. I swiped some from my brother though.
I guess there is another thing I need to get done!
