Hi Gillian, My real father's name was Hans Nansen and he lives in San Diego, CA. I don't know too much about our ancestors because he does'nt want to keep in contact with me. My mother does'nt really know that much about his family. Maybe I can find out more. I would like to!

Hello Bridget This is Gillian, I actually go by Jill, and you will notice that my last name has changed because Iam married. My father is Peter Nansen and his father was Kaare Nansen. My great grandfather was very famous in Norway. His name was Fridtjof Nansen. I suppose you know of him? How old are you ? Is you father still living? Is your last name Nansen? Please e-mail back so we can figure out our family history and where abouts we fit in and if and how we are related. Thanks for your reply. JILL

Jill,

I have been researching my Wright family relatives for many years now and recently on a visit to Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts met a distant cousing by the name of Ted Wright Burnham who supplied me family history that connected my family to yours.

I would love to add more of your line to my research. Here is a little of what I have.

I hope to hear back from you.
