Deborah - I'm hoping to talk with you about the Harstad / Brown side of your family. I gather you also have an uncle, Don, and I'd love to communicate with him as well. I'm particularly interested in what anyone knows/remembers about Marit P Brown (1879-1976). She was the sister of Joanna Brown Harstad, your great-grandmother.
