Time Marches On
Pictured at left are Amund Halvorsen Solseth and his wife, Olea Christensdatter, photographed in Norway around 1880 or earlier. Click on Amund's name to find out how they are related by marriage to the Larsons.
Besides Larson and Myers, important surnames found here are Moen, Samuelson, Sletten,Raiten, Drayer, Colby, and Sprung. A new feature in the right sidebar: "Sunbury, Ohio" is the website of the historical society of Sunbury, a village co-founded by my 3rd great-grandfather in 1816. The society's headquarters is the newly renovated "Myers Inn," first established by that same ancestor, Lawrence Myers.

If you are a relative or serious researcher, you will have access to vital information of living persons, and may download reports in PDF format to save or print, and even create GEDCOM files of selected individuals and family branches. If you want to work together with me, I can even make you a contributor or editor.
Take some time to experiment with site navigation, and explore the many exciting features offered here. Come back often, as I will be adding hundreds of photos, documents, and histories from my archives on a daily basis. Pay special attention to the notes on individual profile pages. There you will find links to blog articles relating to the individual. Eventually, the best of these will be edited and moved into "histories" here on the home site. If you like detective stories, check out the most wanted page for the big mysteries in our family's past. Maybe you can help solve one of them.
Like so many novices, in the first year or two of my work I paid little or no attention to documenting my sources. Likewise, the two relatives who got me jump-started with the first few thousand names in my database did not cite any sources either. I am now playing catch-up, and you will find quite a few source citations, with more being added almost daily. Enjoy the new site, and please contact us with any comments, suggestions, etc.
If you have any questions or comments about the information on this site, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
