I was born in Grand Forks, ND. on 12/18/50 at St. Michaels Hospital, and only lived in that area until I was 5 years old. We moved to LA and lived there through 1968. During this time I visited and lived with my relatives in the Grand Forks/East Grand Forks/Gentilly/Oslo area a couple times for short periods. I then moved to Windom, MN. in 1968 (from LA area), and lived there with my dad and step-mother (Elaine) until I graduated from HS in 1969. I have alot of fond memories of this time-living in the country,etc. with my Grandparents. I then moved to Seattle, WA. and went into the Army for 2 yrs. (Vietnam war veteran). I still live in the North Seattle area (EDMONDS) and am retired from my job I began in 1972 after getting out of the service. I feel that it is important to document this information of our family members for future generations and if there is any inaccurate information or new information, please e-mail me with the information and I will add it to this website. I have also been working on a family tree of our family on Ancestry.com which is an on going project and an important one.
