Clearly a Serendipity Moment for me as I viewed the 36 minute recording of town history, showing many of the historic sites. All the thrill of walking where my ancestors walked almost 400 years ago came flooding back. When we were there they just happened to be having a town celebration at the castle, the town officials dressed in the old regalia, with a band playing on the green. The DVD shows some of this and much more. This part of the family history is challenging to trace and many people have tried. For me, I am satisfied to have an understanding of the culture, customs, time and place where they lived. There may be more pieces of the puzzle waiting to be found.
Do you have family history travel experiences you need to record? There will be more about the trip to Norway in the future. My next desired trip is to travel to New England and visit the places where the people in my John Tidd line lived in Massachusetts and Maine.
