Mervyn and Phyllis Nelson have sent us some lovely greetings. They wished to join us at the reunion but had to attend the marriage of a grandson on Hawaii. They write:
– It sounds like you had a wonderful reunion with a program, visit to Hans’ farm at Lillejord, greetings from the Mayor and Historical Society, fiddler music, a choir from Canada, unveiling of of a memorial honoring emigrants from Beiarn, good food and dancing, Sunday services and coffee – WOW! Wish we could have been there!!!
You and your committee have to be commended for originating this and putting it all together. We are working on putting all the information from the Internet (all the various fingers of the relatives) into a booklet.
Merv has also sent us more information on his grandmother Martine.
