About this Item

BRAND NEW Oversized Softcover - 192pp - Maps - Index - Author Leigh Taylor tells of her search to find her Swedish roots which turned out to stem from Stuttfjerding, Venjan, Sweden. With the help of several strangers (Jerry, Mike and Charlotte), they uncovered the names of the parents of Leigh's great- grandmother, Christina Johnson who wasn't a "Johnson" after all. This is a story about finding the parents of two adopted siblings and a half-brother they never knew existed, until his death. It's a story of people driven out of their village and homeland due to starvation who traveled thousands of miles to make a new life in Minnesota, arriving in Carver County in 1869. It's an adventure in genealogical research with all its twists and unexpected turns. It's a story of finally solving the puzzle about who was Christina's father, thus giving a name and ancestry of Christina and her brother who had been separated by adoption nearly 150 years ago. "Mr. Johnson," we know who you are! At the end of each chapter we have included a section called, "Sources and Techniques." It was written for those who wish to embark on their own genealogical story, while reading an example of true research adventure. The book includes family trees for the following surnames: Andersson, Carlsson, Cullen, Eckblad, Johnson, Joorgensen/Johannessen, Murphy, Lawsson, Restadius, Swanson, and Wurst A Brand New Quality Book from a Full-Time Bookshop in business since 1992!.
