I can't tell you how much this means to me and my husband. I've been doing genealogy for only three years. I started on my family side-Both my paternal and maternal had not been established. On my husband's, a cousin had started the maternal. His fathers side has not been done. This letter you so very kindly translated is loaded with clues and family confirmations for my husband's paternal side.. Both of his parents were born in Norway. Contact between the USA and Norway faded. We recently buried the eldest aunt who knew the only connections to the Norway families. We found several letters in her things after she passed. Before she did pass she made us promise to reconnect the families. So that is my mission.

Nordland in this letter I believe is Norman, my husbands father. And yes there was a brother, Nils. Johannes, wife Helga. I just found a couple of days ago. Bodil we have a picture with her name but didn't know which side of the family she belonged to. A family of 8 we are trying to put the story together.You are wonderful!!!!!!! Tamara Berthelson
