There have been a few special benefits of joining in these Wednesday's Walks.
- I actually found some new relatives on my father's side of the family after writing a post about my Grandpa Sumstad.
- My niece Katie started reading these Wednesday posts because she's learning more about our family history.
- I've made some new blogging buddies.
- I've had fun searching through old family photos (more to come).
So, for this Wednesday's Walk, I wanted to share a few photos I received from a new relative in Norway. Ogee found his way to Heart Choices through another new relative named Bill Sumstad who lives in the Seattle area of the US.
Ogee wrote to me and told me that he was born and raised in Roan, which is next to Sumstad in northern Norway. His father's mother was my Grandpa's father's sister. Does that make sense? I think I need a diagram. LOL.
Ogee has been kind enough to send me some photos of that area of Norway.
I had to l augh because Thomas lives in Norway but he's wearing a T-shirt that says Brooklyn. My niece Katie lives in Brooklyn, New York. I'm not sure what the relation is but Thomas must a second cousin or something like that.
I want to thank my new cousin Ogee for the great photos he shared with me. I love how the internet has brought people together. We often only hear about the bad aspects but it can be used for such good too.
Happy Wednesday and don't forget to visit Lynnette for more posts on Wednesday's Walk down Memory Lane.
