I would like to thank all of my cousins for their help in providing me with scanned pictures they have found. The amount of help has grown in proportion with the enthusiam this site has generated.

Keith was the first to send photos to add to the site, then Doris, then Edward, and Judy. My biggest surprise came from Kathleen. Some of the picture she found were just priceless, but the real crown jewel was the translation of the Icelandic History of the Bernhoft Bakari. Way to go Kathleen.

On my trip to North Dakota, I took my scanner and laptop so I could gather more information and photos. Thanks to Loretta, Edward and Celeste for sharing their photos.

Thanks go to Phyllis, Judy and Karen for helping update family information.

I am so pleased with the response this site and the updating of the Bernhoft Family Genealogy has generated. i knew all it would take was a little push in the right direction and it would take on a life of its own.

Because the site has been such a success with everyone, I am looking into expanding the site and using a different format.

I apologize for the delay in putting the North Dakota Reunion pictures and some of the other pictures, but the program wasn't uploading the site changes.

Again, thanks for the help and the interest in the site. Everyone is a part of it, so feel free to ask me to add a favorite photo for you.

your cousin,
