More group photos from Nebraska, but this time I’ve recruited some of the rest of the family to identify the people in the photos, and we do it live on video!
I actually started this one two weeks ago but got sidetracked with work stuff. Here are two group photos from Grandma Rudeen’s photo album, and dad helped me identify nearly everyone!
I made a major, MAJOR breakthrough in the ancestry of my Grandpa Lawrence Rudeen, through his mother Augusta Mathilda Gustafsdotter. At last, we have a true celebrity in the family!
Several weeks ago, I wrote about a possilbe Frank Rudeen family that was living next door to Uncle Carl Rudeen and Aunt Anna Stark in Altona, Illinois in 1870. So who the heck is Frank Rudeen? I have answers!
A DNA match on Ancestry.com was the key to finding out about a previously unknown branch of the family, and a fourth cousin just down the road!
