Another Strange Discovery in the Online Statens Arkiver
Ah, Slangerup! How many times have I wandered your streets in my imagination? I have traversed the byways and entered the church doors, looking for Gerda's mother, her parents and her twin brothers, and I have found some of them. I often return to the kirke...

What I know so far ...
The Mortensens: circa 1940 (my husband's father is the boy in front on the left)  Gerda is the pretty young woman on the far right. I got interested in genealogy, shortly after my father passed away six years ago. He came from a family of twelve, out of Nor...

St. Bernard of Clairvaux I'm reading, The Sign of Jonas , the journal of Trappist monk, Thomas Merton, and as I go, I am highlighting passages and lines that strike me.  Here's a bit I read recently that I thought worthy of sharing. It comes from Sermon XXI...
