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.

The Boye Dynasty
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.
