My extended family have grown into lineage geeks recently. Every so often, I acquire an email forward in regards to where our ancestors came from and who they were. I noted this hobby if theirs once in a post called Uncle Henry.
This afternoon my mom was at it again. She encountered something pretty cool. The following is a copy of the page where my Great Grandmother, Kristiane Ostbye, signed herself into the country at Ellis Island. If you care to, click on the picture. The writing is then decipherable. (It’s on line 13)
