RE: Strom
Hi Mindy,

Thanks for the message. I'm not sure if we have pictures of Ole Olsen. Erik Olson Strom is my husband's 3x great grandfather. His mother, Helen Hanson descended via Anna Dorothy Dale Hanson and Anna Caroline Strom Dale. I got started on this and my husband gives me a lot of information. He (Dave) and his mom wrote the biographies. Any corrections are greatly appreciated. One cousin, Janet Hanson, did a lot of the same research my husband did. This was about 20 years ago. They came out with a lot of the same info. the old fashion way. She and some other cousins did meet others from Norway. We went once but didn't. It is so beautiful.
I did join Ancestory about a month ago. It's been a challenge and a journey. We have discussed many dates and names. They drive me crazy with the dottors/daughters, sons and farm names. He and his cousins have been having Six Mile Grove discussions.Most are still in Minnesota.
If I put a memorial on Find a Grave you'd like, pleas let me know.

RE: McLane
I do not know if she has email. I have only spoken to her on the phone and in person. I will try to find out after Christmas if she has email.

RE: McLane
She is 78 years old and very active. Everytime I try to catch her at home, she is never there.

Oh, I need to do anything to "accept" or is it automatic. I appreciate having them and will take care of each and every one.
