Caroline, Evelyn, and Kassie were John and Vala's children. When Mom was 5 (about 1928), the girls lived just down the road from Veiga and Tom. Dorie had a small house there too. There were also some cabins near the Dawe's and that's where Mom's family stayed in Crescent Beach. It's not a very long road and I believe it's now called, 'Christopherson Rd'. The girls played together and went to the same school, but only the school teacher stayed with the Dawe's.

About 40 years ago, I met Carrie Christopherson when she visited Iceland. I was only a teenager, my father, Gísli Guðmundsson, organized the trips to Iceland and was the group's travel guide while there. He himself lived in Manitoba from 1927 to 1937 and stayed in contact with his Canadian friends throughout his life. In 1974.

I visited Carrie, who by then was married to Luke Humber...I found one I had taken of them at their home in October 1974 and now that I am going through some old photographs, I found a picture she sent to me, from their wedding day. And it so happens that it is was on this very day, in 1974 - the 15th of April. For me personally, that is a day to remember, since it is my confirmation day ;).
For Icelanders it is a special day, as Vigdís Finnbogadóttir was born on April 15th 1930. ..

I have enclosed the two shots I have, and a screenshot that shows how I am related to Sigurður Kristófersson. ...I think I saw my cousin's name on your site, Kormákur Högnason. He seems to have translated some text for you/the family.

Ed Fader was my first contact (in class photos lower down) in that area, who informed me of Ytranes.
Webmaster does not recall his parents ever mentioning 95% of what he know now (on this website), or of our cousins in BC.

Roy would be more than happy to post anything from their family
