* Ancestors of Richard O. and Verla R. (Brent) Olson*

Updated September 4, 2008

I have been interested in my roots since I was seventeen years old. My great Aunt Linnea wrote me a letter in 1958 of her recollections of both my grandmother and grandfather's families and that has become the platform on which I have continued my research. In the last ten years, I have made great strides in finding these roots for both myself and my wife who was a Brent. I have found and made contact with many relatives that were lost to both our families for more than 80 years and have added many fascinating stories rumors and facts. My reseach has been assisted by many amateur and some professional researchers. The source of information has been very important and where possible I have tried to give credit to those who have assisted me. The trees or portions of trees on this site contain much information which has not been published before. By their very nature there is some overlap to other researcher's work but I have tried to limit this as much as possible. This site contains a moderate representation of the 4500 persons and 50,000 text records in my program. Please contact me if you think you fit somewhere in the flow. I welcome comments or criticism or corrections and especially pictures of the family members. A word about the site, the book is fully indexed and searchable.It is current as of 3-20-08. Depending on your system it can take 2-3 minutes to download since it is 200+ pages. On the opening window, scroll to the table of contents. If you want more help, click on search (binoculars) and put in your desired information. A list of locations will be provided in the window to the right. I have also included several genealogy reports which I think are of interest and many photographs from as far back as the 1890s. roo
