yes we are in NZ. John is connected thru Lars then his son Lars and then his daughter Betty who married a Danish guy called Jens Peter Sigvertsen. They had Beatrice who married Percy Berry. and so on. We went to a family reunion in Eketahuna years ago and met heaps of people on the Danish side. Forgot about the Norwegian side until our son met and married his norwegian girl. So then her family searched out the Norwegian relatives and arranged for us to meet. we have more family tree and some photos for that side. if you are interested I can send you some of the info. I will need to finish typing it into a tree with photos etc.
