I caught the bug from my grandmother, Fern Sommer Keegan, who worked in the letter-writing days to gather family info from far-flung and sometimes suspicious relatives. Over many years, she produced two books on branches of my grandfather’s family ancestry, the Shorts and the Harfords, as well as helped translate a Danish family member’s genealogy on the Jonasens into English. She is my inspiration – I just wish I could share all of my findings with her now!
So, instead, I am sharing my findings with you. Hopefully, you’ll enjoy the tidbits as much as I do. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions!
