barnas til fedrene

Barnas hjerter til fedrene – en slektsforskerblogg
Blog type: Norway, Norwegian

Helt fra jeg var en liten jente og fant min mormors fotoalbum fra 1920 årene i skapet hennes (med fine hemmelige saker i) har jeg vært dypt engasjert og heftig begeistret for slektsforskning.

Som 12-åring på sommerferie i Oslo introduserte min eldste bror Roger meg til Riksarkivet og hvordan jeg kunne forske i kirkebøker ved å titte på mikrofilmer. Jeg har brukt mye ferie og fritid gjennom ungdomstiden hvor timene bare forsvant så alt for fort av alle «skattene» jeg fant der. Jeg elsker lukten av gamle bøker pga. av min «oppvekst» (besøk) på riksarkivet.

Min bror Roger introduserte meg til aneark, familieark og inspirerte seg med sin slektsforskning til å få vite mer. Jeg har bygget min interesse og min slektsforskning på det arbeidet han den gang gjorde og det han fant.

Jeg samlet historier, bilder, ukebladutklipp, slektsforskerpapirer og alt annet som hadde med mine forfedre/slekt å gjøre i flere år i esker og permer helt til PC-en gjorde sitt inntok og jeg kunne legge alt over i et slektsforskerprogram. 3 år tok det meg å legge inn alt på PC som jeg hadde samlet om min familie.

Ever since I was a little girl and found my grandmother’s photo album from 1920 years in her closet (with fine secret matters), I have been deeply engaged and passionately enthusiastic about genealogy.

As a 12-year-old on summer vacation Oslo introduced my oldest brother Roger me to the National Archives and how I could do research in church records by looking at microfilms. I have spent a lot of holidays and leisure through adolescence where hours just disappeared all too quickly of all “treasures” I found there. I love the smell of old books due. of my “growing up” (visit) the National Archives.

My brother Roger introduced me to Home Family, familieark and inspired by its genealogy to learn more. I have built my interest and my genealogy on the work he ever did and what he did.

I collected stories, photos, magazine clippings, genealogical papers and anything else that brought my ancestors / relatives to do for several years in boxes and binders until the computer did its occupied and I could put everything into a genealogical program. Three years it took me to post anything on the PC that I had collected on my family.

My genealogy site on the web:


Blog type: Family, Jewish, Letters, Military

Welcome to the Brotman Blog.  Our  original intent was to create a place where members of the extended Brotman family could share family history information without having to clog email or rely on Facebook.  It still serves that original purpose, but we hope it also serves as a way to explore the issues that are raised when doing family history research and the reasons for doing it.  Genealogy is not just about obtaining names, dates, and documents; it’s about finding meaning in the past and learning from the lives our ancestors lived.

family resemblance

Family Resemblance
Blog type: Family

A blog about the traits we pass down, whether genetically or environmentally, and the qualities we only find in ourselves. Also features selections from the blogger’s grandfather’s Korean War memoir, aka the book that started her interest in family history. For more information, go here:
