Welcome to Relatively Speaking, the  journal of my adventures in discovering my family ancestry. I’m an historical fiction novelist, avid blogger, research fanatic, history buff, and a self-designated family historian.

Here you’ll find topics related to early American genealogy, as many of my maternal ancestors were first settlers. You’ll also find some of my paternal Swedish heritage being explored as well.  On occasion I delve into my husband’s Yankee and Norwegian history.

If you’d like to see my family tree which includes a list of surnames, please visit  An Old New England Heritage.

Thank you for stopping by!

Tack så mycket!
