Welcome to my Web-site.



This Web-site is dedicated to my long lost family in the USA.
Thanks to my Cousins Carol Ellefson, South Dakota and Phyllis M. Anderson, Montana, 
I have been able to find a lot of relatives in many different States.

Some of the sites shows the area, of which my family 
comes from in Denmark and many family pictures as well.

I have been trying to do some genealogy on the family and
you will find a database containing some of the members.

My great-uncle Hans Peter Egediussen went to America in 1901, 
together with his wife Jensine Boje and the Boye/Boje family are quite 
interesting and thats why you can read about them here.

Dear Ancestor 

 Your tombstone stands among the rest; 
 Neglected and alone. 
 The name and date are chiseled out 
 On polished, marbled stone. 
  It reaches out to all who care 
  It is too late to mourn. 
  You did not know that I exist 
  You died and I was born. 
  Yet each of us are cells of you 
  In flesh, in blood, in bone. 
  Our blood contracts and beats a pulse 
  Entirely not our own. 
  Dear Ancestor, the place you filled 
  One hundred years ago 
  Spreads out among the ones you left 
  Who would have loved you so. 
  I wonder if you lived and loved, 
  I wonder if you knew 
  That someday I would find this spot, 
  And come to visit you.
