Welcome, I have put up this website for the people interested in the George William and Maria (Lee) Yarwood genealogy. Much of these documents are 25 years old. I would like very much to include ANY information about this lineage ... so if you have any information and will share it, please send it to me. Either, scan it and e-mail it or mail it.
Also, if you have family news, reunion, gathering etc. and would like to post it, I'll do that. I can post it on the News & Bulletin Board ... or ... on the Family "Only" - Password Required page.
Send me your e-mail address to be added to the Yarwood distribution.

The following was put together by my Aunt Dorothy G. Emmons in June of 1985. Information in this history was compiled from information furnish to Aunt Dorothy by family members.
Realizing this is old (1985) I would like to bring it up to date. So, if you find errors (this is not uncommon in a genealogy), please send me updates and any addition information.
Wow!!! ... here is Risdahl history dating back to 1640! My cousin, Margaret (Rolfs) Jeche, my Aunt Dorothy's daughter, went through some of her history and sent the RISDAHL HISTORY to me.
The Father, Didrick Risdahl had died soon after he, his wife, and Lars came to the US. Another son (Peter) had died in Norway.
