Before I began this great adventure I knew little about my relatives, other than my immediate family (which is not too many).
I started with my mother's side of the family because I currently live a short distance from her childhood roots.
With my father's side, I knew even less. I was lucky enough to find a cousin who has traveled to Norway. He has shared some wonderful stories.
Now I've connected with another on Dad's side and he has lots of stuff, too ... to share. I'm so stoked about the possibilities.
