I know very little about my Dad’s side of the family. I know that my Grandpa Johnson was Finnish. My Grandma Beatrice was adopted in Montreal. I barely know the family tree, let alone personal stories about them. I want our kids to know their family and so it’s time I ask and learn.
A combination of things has lead me to some interesting discoveries, family secrets, and new photos. There are still pieces I’m trying to figure out and information I want to gather. Over the next little bit, I’ll share it all with you.
I find my biggest resources have been my parents. I ask them a ton of questions and then go from there. We need to ask questions while we still have people who can answer them. Otherwise, we are losing pieces of our story.
