A Quick SFHO Site Overview—
Velkommen! This is a quick guide of reference for the users of the Sorensen Family History Organization. This site is broken down into the following six major sections. Pictures of the family and other events or items of interest are included in the sections, where I am able.
Genealogy— A listing of the descendants of Nicolai Sorensen and his wife Malena Olsen, their ten living children who came to America and the seventy-nine grandchildren. This section extends beyond even this to attempt to collect the names and stories of all known members and or descendants of the extended Nicolai Sorensen family.
Sorensen Family History— A collection of various stories, histories and descriptions of notable events connected to the Nicolai Sorensen family in some way.
Life in Denmark— Life prior to the family joining the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in 1855. Danish customs, habits, a different way of life and the families that they left behind in Denmark. What our past might have looked like if Nicolai Sorensen and family would have stayed in Denmark.
The Journey West— From Haverup, Denmark to Mendon, Utah the story of the Nicolai Sorensen family and the events of the journey of their lifetime. Ships and sail, steam powered railroad travel, walking on foot along side covered wagons, buffalo on the plains. A step back to a primitive, pioneering time.
Life In Utah— Things never thought of in Denmark. Indians, guns, deserts, rattle-snakes and a whole new way of life. Learning a new language. The frustration of being literate among the other pioneers, but not speaking English, yet. Carving a home with a axe and dealing with the primitive implements of the frontier. Laying out new towns, where none existed, in valleys where no white person had yet made a residence. Western justice or lack of same. A whole new world where the ground was broken from the native soil for the first time ever. What a challenge, what an adventure!
Photographs— Where I hope to place and share some of the photographs that might be of interest to the Nicolai Sorensen family.
Please enjoy your time spent here, share it with your family…
One last thing… if you should find a broken link, typo or other such misspelling, please help me to find and correct them. Something's I do well, but my spelling is, well, lax at times. I leave in the old style grammar, but for example, from and form and other such items, my fingers just plain refuse to cooperate.
