After coming up blank at the Billund Bibliotek on Rosendahl family records...we were given a link at the Magion Bibliotek and Cultural Centre in Grinstead to track further in John's search for his Nordic ancestry...interesting because when we ask questions about records the staff seem to gravitate toward me...not expecting that the man standing in front of them with Aboriginal and Vanuatu heritage is the one with nordic roots as well. A nice little smile passes between us.
Having done research in institutions before John is both excited and yet calm knowing that nothing may eventuate from the records.
Today turned out the latter, not that there were no records...but that the Citizen Research Officer was not available. So with an email address in hand of her contact details, we leave satisfied that the search will go on...although these will be given to one of John's younger sisters who is chief ancestry.com custodian for his family.
So the rest of the day is a slow lazy drive around the countryside on the way home...with everything done here...we decide an earlier move onto Germany. So we'll pack tonight and be ready for a early getaway in the morning.
