A Historic Day

I’m sitting here staring at my computer screen, thinking about the announcement of McCain’s running mate, a woman, and Obama’s nomination yesterday. One way or another, we will almost certainly make history with this year’s presidential election. But what I am looking at, the beginning of the Christensen Family History website, seems even more personally momentous to me. I am overwhelmed, and, for once, at a loss for words to write about my feelings concerning the beginning of this website. I have felt strongly that our family needs a web presence to share the heritage with which we have been blessed. Thank you, thank you, Jake Breinholt, for facilitating this beginning, and hopefully, for holding our hands as it continues to grow. I told Cousin Eric you were “our man.” Now I’ll say, “You’re the man!”

Welcome Family!

Hi Christensen Clan!  A goal set at the reunion two years ago is now a reality. Thanks to Jake Breinholt, (Beth Breinholt’s son) we have a great domain name and the potential for a wonderful website.  This is a great website, too, with many capabilities.  The name, Christensen, can be picked up by search engines, thereby facilitating those looking for our family information. Don’t panic! We can choose what information is seen.  That would include things like ancestral histories, ancestral gedcoms, ancestral pictures, etc.  The operative word is ancestral, meaning things pertaining to Christensen that are in the past–way past.  The other good part is we can post current information we want seen, for example, the current plans for the next Christensen reunion. 

In addition to this, we have a private part of this website, too, that only members can access, that includes current addresses and contact information for the family members. Cool, huh!

So watch for new developments as we add, improve and grow this website!

With much love from your niece, mom, cousin, sister and friend,

Beth Breinholt
