Genealogy Overview

Over the past few years, I have started working on the Peterson family tree. This has entailed gathering quite a bit of data from numerous sources and entering it into a family tree database. My biggest worry in working on this project is ensuring that the data itself is accurate. Due to work priorities, I have not been able to work on this project as much as I would have liked to, but that is a problem that we all run into.

I have been fortunate to make a trip to Norway while we lived in England for three years. It was a wonderful experience to actually visit the locations that our ancestors emigrated from. Although Norway is a beautiful country, one quickly realizes the limited amount of land available to the growing population, which forced a new generation to seek their own fortune in another country.

As I continue to gather information, I will post as much of it here as possible. I am especially looking for any pictures of my Great-Grandparents and their direct ancestors.
