Description

Description from the book: "This is a family history that begins with a husband and wife coming from Norway to the united States in 1844, one Anders Bonhus and Anne Olsbrygge Bonhus and ends with the death of their grandson Carl Alffred Bonhus in 1957.

It is a family history that attemps to sketch the web of family relationships that existed for each of the generations cover and the cntext of the times in which each generation lives. A life is not readily revealed in a simple recitation of birth date, place of birth, deaht date, and place of death.

Each individual in a family tree lives out his or her days in the midst of an extended family, often presided over by a patriach and matriach while events near and far impact daily esitence. Family relationships and these events determine the path a life takes which in turn affects each succeeding generation. These are the themes in this Bonhus Family History."
