Sweden 2009
When the kids and grandchildren left on June 14 for home, Bev and Jim stayed and with Gerd and Hans Ivar, we traveled to Sweden to visit with Olle Anderson who had made arrangements to meet relatives, and to visit the home site of Augusta Eriksdatter (Bjugstad).  Augusta left in 1880 to meet with Kristian Bjugstad at least in America, and they married, settled in Sheldon ND, and until this trip, no one has ever returned to visit the site of her birth.

All that changed though, and while we have MANY photos at the end of the link "Norway 2009", we put in a photo book for all the descendants to see, our return!
