Family and Friends passed on



Many of the individuals name, for more than seven generations back, was given to me by my mother, Donna Rae (Burns) Trogstad and father, Marvin Edward Trogstad. They have spent their lives on a journey to give to us as much information, regarding our past, and predecessors as they could. They have done this since I was child.

When adding persons to the tree, I have discovered on many websites, the complete family profile, which confirm dates of 'most' every person my mother and father have provided and those my father, just couldn't quite 'reckon'! And those that were virtually inaccessible to us until the advent of technology, and sites such as Wikitree.

Additionally, there is a family, of my mother's lineage, whom migrated to Iowa from the east coast, that has a complete volume of historical information.

All three of Donna and Marvin Trogstad's daughters were given this volume. Mine was stolen from a storage unit in 2014, when I lived in Willmar Minnesota. It is a scary thing to know that personal information is out there. It is reported to law enforcement.

Also, family's migrated to Ohio, Indiana, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, California, Louisiana, Texas, Texarkana, and Arkansas and many other places to numerous to mention.

When I was a child, my father's Aunt Laura Mosely and my mother's brother Calvin Burns, provided me with information after I sent them tearful letters bemoaning my mothers strife at not having much family information. I'm certain that was the beginning of our families journey.

As life was lived, both parents became instrumental in the size of this tree that is presented to you by me.

This is a family tree for Marvin and Donna Trogstads family, created for the future generations.That said, it only follows, there is only one path to their family's predecessors, of which many of us share a common bond. We are happly engaged in our future and want to be a part of your family as we share our family's strong heritages and past with you.

Thank you for coming to learn about us. We are a strong, loving family. We are hard working people. Enjoy spreading kindness, and understanding, We are open to learning.

Many of our familys have fought in wars for the life we live in America. We are loyal.

We are enthusiastically looking to our past, look to be welcomed as a part of the family's who are currently living and loving their families, in the countries our predecssors left behind when they were seeking a 'better' or 'new' way of life in America.

As we continue to move and shake the atmosphere with enthusiasm of life, we carry this as a committment to encourage our future generations to enjoy their lives respectfully to live those lives to the fullest.

"To the future!" Jodi Rae (Trogstad) Brennan

Hi Jodi,

My Cole's are actually Kohl's that came from Germany to the U.S. in the 1840s', so unfortunately, I'm not familiar with your line. Happy hunting!

I received an email that is from a Marik Mohawk Indians Blood, this is what the person wrote: "No offence but German is extremely common and boring and nothing special or to be proud of. Why would anyone want or be proud to be German", I'm not sure why this person sent this to me or what their intent is. I do not identify t to a Wikitree ID.

For most of my life, I understood my father was Norwegian and German. This past year discovered he is more Norwegian and English, with Isle of Man and likely Swedish farther back. In the past several weeks, developed an appreciation of my mother's family from Rheinland-Pflaz region. An individual has been sending me some interesting documents about the family in the US around Civil War era. Why wouldn't I take an interest in this. How strange.

Hi Jodi,

no, I don't think we're related. I've got most of my ancestors in Telemark. But you'll never know.

Hi Jodi! In case Andrew didn't reply to your question on this page, I believe he's noting that the person is one of the 25 Magna Carta Surety Barons. They're listed on the project page for the Magna Carta Project as well as being in this a separate category.
