The map on the right shows Norway and the red A is where Sumstad is located. I was thrilled to spend time in Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim and then ...Sumstad. My dad's cousin Kjell took us for the long drive to the family farm.
Ogee is another newly discovered family member. He lives in Oslo, Norway and he sent me a few photos. He recently had the opportunity to visit Sumstad and sent this one on the left. It's a very peaceful place to visit.
This is the grave stone of my grandfather's mother and father. His mother was Helga and his dad was Kristian.
I know I have many more photos but I think this is enough for right now.
It's kind of funny because I have lots of pretty photos of my mother in her bunad (traditional Norwegian costume) but I only have this one of me. My husband Greg would laugh and say ...that's my Viking!
Now, don't forget to visit Lynnette to check out other's posts on Wednesday's Walk Down Memory Lane.
