I am Janet Opheim Peters, daughter of Irvin and Ione, granddaughter of George and Myrtle, greatgranddaughter of Jacob and Guro.I have corresponded in the past with Patty Neal Volker.Patty, if you're out there, I'd be interested in having a copy of that geanology that goes back to the 1600's.Am most willing to pay for copying and mailing.
If you are at all interested in adding a couple more generations to the family tree, I have a daughter and two grandchildren, and my brother, Dennis, has a son named Joshua Jacob, after his great-greatgrandfather Jacob.Have you done an online family tree?If so, I could add the information there and also add pictures, if that's allowed. This is my first visit to this site. Just today I found that there is another Josh Opheim in Roswell, NM, who I suspect may be the son of my cousin, whom I've never met, Arthur Earl Opheim, who is the son of Arthur and Lilly) Opheim, youngest son of George and Myrtle.
As kids, we were always told we weren't related to the Bode branch of the Opheim family.That may or may not be true.My sister-in-law from my first marriage was Patty Berge Peterson, daughter of Agnes Opheim Berge of the Bode Opheims.
I've enjoyed visiting the site and reading postings on the Opheim forum.
