My regular readers may remember that my family and I spent an enjoyable time in Utah on vacation recently. I wrote about it in my blog post I'm Back!!. We had a great time together.
And as any other good genealogist would do, I planned a couple visits to local cemeteries while we were there.
One of the cemeteries we visited was the Ogden City Cemetery. If you have ancestors buried in this cemetery, be sure to check out the cemetery's link. This website allows you to search for your ancestor's burial plot and see it on a map. Very cool!
Buried in this cemetery are several of my Christopherson ancestors from Norway. Today’s post will focus on my 3rd great-grandfather, Michael Christian Christopherson.
