Re: Kindseth family of Minnesota
This is great.I told my sister Denise about meeting one of our third cousins on the net.At least I think we may be third cousins.Were you born in Norway?How did you come to be in California?We grew up primarily in southern California, but now I am in Dallas, and Denise is in Washington.I have a very old letter from Gjerbud Sivertsen 1910 and another from 1892 but they are in Norwegian and I have no idea what they say.They were mailed from Trondhjem.
The 1910 letter starts out:
Min kjaw Bruder Gustav! (I assume this is my dear brother Gustav.)It goes on:
Dak for Dit kjare Brev og end mere tak for Haralsgave dil mig. Jeg for nok helsh sige dig min kjare Brov.
I am not sure of the letters being correct but what a fun mystery.Anyway, I hope Peter is well.My sister and I are both attorneys and the first in our family unless we have some Norwegian barristers in our ancestry, we are curious if there is a genetic link.Please write again, we are wonderfully curious about our Norwegian side.I would like to make a trip to Norway and visit where my greatgrandparents came from.
Best regards, Karen
