I received this folding screen from a friend and knew that it was perfect for my ancestor project. I only wish I had photos of more ancestors. I'm missing a gt gt grandpa and a gt gt grandma and the earlier generations after that.

Quite some time ago I began emailing with a cousin from the Johnson line of my tree. She has done tons of research over the years and has lots to share. Recently I was speaking at a little town near Helena and she and her husband were in the audience. We had such a nice chat afterward and then we talked by phone over the weekend. She has sent many more pictures, family stories and shared a family mystery with me. This has to be one of the best parts of my research. The connections with distant relatives. So. Much. Fun.

How's this for a family resemblance? Sven Fält was the brother of Johanna "Jennie" (Fält) Borgreen. Carl Borgreen was the son of Johanna. Sadly, these folks never met and I'm not sure they even knew of each other. But the family resemblance is undeniable.

I received another packet of wonderfulness from cousin Marita. It came just after my birthday and was the topper to a wonderful 50th celebration. The Bible pages are the icing on the cake. I never hoped to see them. What a prize.
