Recently spent the summer back in Edinburg with my sister and brother in law Mary and Steve. Had a wonderful time and wanted to say everyone in Edinburg should be so proud of this beautiful town and the kind people in it. Everthing is so well kept.

Myron and Stephanie are my parents.  Dad has passed and Mom lives in Nebraska with my sister, Lori.  It makes me smile to see the pictures of people I know.  I haven't lived in a small town since I moved out of North Dakota.  I am so happy to see nothing has changed in Edinburg.  I am also thankful for this site.  I have sent an email to my Aunt Sylvia who posted in February.  I haven't spoken to her since my Dad passed away.  Thank you for the opportunity to not only stay current with the community but to stay true to who I am.

Rita, I want to thank you for all the hard work you put in to keep us posted about our great city of Edinburg !!    It has been many years since I have lived there and not too many people remember me but I have fond memories of growing up in Edinburg.  I have not been back there since 2009, but one of these days I will come back.  I have a sister, Dolly Halverson in Park River and my friends, John & Eunice Evenson that I would really love to see again.  I knew your Mom & Dad and your Mom was my 7th grade teacher she was then "Miss Sorbo).  Much loved teacher, I must say)  Please keep up the good work, it is much appreciated !!!!!!!

"This is what we do. We take care of our people."
That's what Lana told me when I thanked her for helping with the refreshments for Mother's funeral on Monday.

Mother was the last of her family of ten sisters and brothers and their spouses. And she was the last of Dad's family of eight sisters and brothers and their spouses. Her parents, and Dad's, were all immigrants who found the promise of America in Edinburg. I know Mother's thoughts turned often to Edinburg in her last years. It was  home.

I am back  in Maine now, full of gratitude for all that you,  our family's friends and neighbors in Edinburg, did to help Linda, Mark, and me bring our mother home, where she needed and wanted to be.

My Grandfather Joseph Peterson was born just south of Edinburg in 1885 on what the locals tell me is called Peppermint Hill. When I see that landmark, I know I am almost to Edinburg :-)

This is just a test message sent to the guestbook.  Someone told me they were unable to post a message.  I want to make sure the site is working.  Have a great day.

John & Magdalena Sveen were my great-uncle/aunt.  Wonderful Sveen family!  I think often of them & their family.  Sveen kids (back then), Johnson kids, Moe kids.  My great-aunt Mary came from Norway (Rena) July 22, 1909, on the ship Majestic.  My wonderful (and she sure was) grandmother Helga Dinkel, came September 20, 1910, on the ship United States - with Helfrida Nygaard, Astrid Christiansen, & others that are on the log.  Aunt Mary came with $25.  Grandma with $75.  Uncle John came through Canada.
Edinburg, ND, is a great place.....with great people!  That part of the world will always be special.
