My Great-Grandma Sophie Jorgensen-Rasmussen wrote in her journal until she was 104 years old -- she died in 1979 at 105 years old. She provided some great info on the family, but I'm still trying to piece some things together. I know everything from Sophie on downwards though. They came over from Denmark and lived in Albert Lea and Milaca MN, where it appears most of them might be buried. Here is what I have from her immediate family: Father - Peter died 10/26/1929; Mother - Bertha died 1/26/1926; Older sister - Christina born 7/23/1871, married Jake Mikkelsen and had two sons Earl and Glenn; Younger sister - Thine was born 9/23/1878 and died 6/25/1889; Younger brother Chris was born 7/25/1882 and died 5/1966; Younger sister Josefine was born 6/6/1883 and died 4/9/1885. I have a few names of aunts and uncles of Sophie -- Aunt Ellen, Aunt Sophie, Uncle Jim, etc. But, I have no idea what her mother's maiden name was. Also, I'm going to the historical society this weekend to pull her mother's birth certificate -- I hope it's on there. Please let me know if any of you know anything about my family. Thank you!!
