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

I am doing research on this family, having 'found' a family tree that had a lot of detail. I wonder if there is a project started for these individuals or this particular community, The 'Northey's'

Jodi - I don't think you need to be put on a trusted list to be able to edit a person as long ago as Mary Drake. You just need to be pre-1700 certified. Any help you can locate to clarify her profile will be very much appreciated. Personally, I only had her as part of my extended family from the Whitsett/Whitesides.

To anyone visiting to see what I am up to, I just was on a Winterhay-1 and Winterhay-6 profile discovering several sources, I lost the two profiles and am working my way back to them. Merging was required.

The surety barons are the men mentioned in Magna Carta as presenting the barons in any disputes in the future. They formed a sort of senior committee of men to represent the rest of the country when there was a disagreement with the King. The Magna Carta project on Wikitree traces lines from these people down to people who migrated to America.
