Wednesday’s Word

Or words this week, “Today, was a good day“.  I’m having a difficult time with these words.  I am lucky to feel almost every day is a good day so I could fill books with photographs.  Every year gets better.  But as I recently checked one item off of my bucket list, I’ll say that any day you meet your ancestors and learn something about why you are the way you are, is a good day.

Ingatorp-6

And Ingatorp, the land of the Möllers and Samuelsons.  Both beautiful and full of beautiful people.  Happy traveling!

  1. I know you took your wonderful trip this year but have you done any research on line? Wondering if you found a particular site that you liked.

      I use ancestry.com, but more to see who else has similar information. I have information that a Swedish person pulled out, and then when I was there a historical commission did some research for me. I have been given the name of a Swedish site that I was told has all my family information and the name of the keeper, but I am holding that for cooler days. If you have Swedish ancestors, I have that website. My mother with me used to walk graveyards looking for the information she needed and visit town halls. Now, Ancestry.com provides a lot of those links. My search has really just been serendipitous.
