I am pleased to announce the launch of a new “room” on the website, entitled “Descendants.” It appears in the navigation section above and throughout the site. However, it is a “private” area, since unlike the rest of the site, it includes many living individuals. I have sent the username and password to my email list of extended family. If you have not received it, and are a relative of mine, or think you might be, or feel a need for the information to further your research, please email me, or post a comment and I will get back to you.
At present, there is only one item in the category, but it is a big one: “Larsons & Slettens 1985” by cousin Aline.
For those of you not familiar with it, it is a book of 160 pages, covering all the descendants, down to 1985, of not only Ole Larson, but also his sisters Mari and Marit (Larsdatter), and all the Slettens (with whom the Larsons are so intricately intermarried). I haven’t counted up the descendants in it, but there must be a good thousand. The book is in PDF format, with searchable text and lots of navigation links. I hope to post much more content in the coming weeks, to include descendants in other branches of my (very) extended family.
For those readers who are following this blog in a more general way, stay tuned. Next up: Martha Bennet Myers, Historian.
