Hi Sandra,
I see you're online, and I was trying to reach "Crayspond". I just happened to come upon this site and saw she was looking for Bjork family members.  I am one of them!  My father was Norman R. Bjork.  My grandparents were Ralph and Jennifer Bjork, and my aunt was Evelyn Siewert.  I would love to get in touch with her.  It seems she's not online often from what I can tell. I am new to this site.  I was shocked someone was looking for members of my family.  Any help is appreciated.  My married name is Linda Graham.

Just to say I've sent familyof6 two private messages. Thanks for letting me know she was trying to get in touch.

Hi Linda,
Norman Bjork was my mother's cousin.  Their fathers, Ralph and Irving Carl, were brothers.

Is it possible that Ralph and Jennie Bjork's "daughter" Dorothy, mentioned in these messages was really Norman's cousin Dorothy Bjork, daughter of Otto Bjork?  I always believed that Otto's daughter Dorothy (b. 02-06-1903 In NH) lived with Ralph Bjork and the rest of the extended Bjork family at 30 Hamilton St in Hartford after Otto's wife died and Otto and children moved to Hartford. Is this possible or am I confusing two different Dorothys?

Hi shshome,
This is news to me - I have the census with Jennie and John Yeoman also Dorothy as daughter but her age is hard to decipher its either 3,5 or 8.  That could fit in with your Dorothy. The answer would be to look for a birth cert for Dorothy mother Jennie Yeoman father John Yeoman. Unfortunately i don't have ancestry at the moment maybe someone could help?

I did find a birth record for Dorothy Mitchell Yeoman, daughter of John and Jennie Yeoman, born Dec 24, 1906, in North Adams , Massachusetts.  This must be your Dorothy.
