Hear how CCGS member Kay Cooke unfurled the leaves in her Norwegian and Swedish family trees. With scanty information, she discovered name changes, scoured the internet, searched foreign parish records, befriended Scandinavian genealogists, connected with cousins, and eventually, walked in her Nordic ancestors' footsteps.
