Welcome!

You have found your way to a genealogical and biographical website that records the history of Jonathan Fristad's ancestors. The principal reason for this site's creation was to have a place where my immediate and extended family members could come and find out about their ancestors. The information has been there for a while, but never in any useable format.

The emphasis here is more on the individual's life story - WHO they were, and not necessarily who they were descended from. Family trees are great, but they don't tell you too much about the person's culture, environment or circumstance. This site will hopefully give some insight into those aspects of my ancestors.

This site is best viewed in Firefox. There are a multitude of reasons to get this browser, the foremost being that this site looks great using it!Firefox 2
