I am doing research on the Dahl and Portz families and still need more information. I am also looking for scanned photos, birth certificates, death certificates, newspaper obituaries, Memorial Folders and cemetery photos.
Some of my information is based only on the personal recollections of family members and may not be entirely accurate. If you think you know someone who is listed here, but find that my listing doesn't match what you know about that person, then the error might well be mine. Please let me know so that I can correct it!
