Norwegians, Swedes and More: Ancestors and Descendants of Loren and Mavis Winge Amundson, Book 1
"Norwegians, Swedes and More" provides a synopsis of our ancestral family components; Norwegians and Swedes as well as those of French and English descent by way of the St. Lawrence Seaway in Quebec and upstate New York. Part I, Destination Dakota Territory, describes Loren's multifaceted family from all of the above backgrounds and finds them as homesteaders in Minnehaha County, 'Dakota' ĘDakota Territory, South Dakota ̈. Part II, Norway to Minnesota, is 'all Norwegian' and finds Mavis' families all homesteading in Lac qui Parle County in west central Minnesota, some having spent months or years in Goodhue County on the eastern border of the state before reaching their final Vesterheim. This book is planned as the first of five or six about these families, each containing the same core of material to set the stage for individual family presentations. Book One presents descriptions and stories about the ancestors and descendants of pioneer Minnehaha County homesteaders Andrew Lifto and his wife Mary Jane Alguire. They represent the French, English, Canadian and upstate New York segment of Loren's family.
