Full Circle 125

This Full Circle began when Iggy (Intense Guy) left a message at Ancestry for a Tree Holder.

The fellow contacted me by email.

Hello!
Helmer Johnson is my great grandfather on my mom's side.
We have reunions every other year and the next one is August 2016. We are making plans now.
We would be thrilled to get a copy of your photo of him.

I mailed off the photo.

I received the photo! Thank you so much!

I won't be home until Friday and then I will send you a snail mail thank you!

All the best,

Ken

Later he shared:

All I have is the part of the family tree that has Helmer Johnson in it.

The tree has 800+ people in it, mostly Norwegians going back a long ways. All my grandparents were Norwegian immigrants around the turn of the century.
