Wanda Dearth - obituary

Because the US census records are only available up to 1930 (the 1940 US census will be available in 2012) tracking down the many branches of a family tree can be an arduous task.

It was this document that I found in the DeKalb Daily Chronicle in 2007 that helped me locate more of my distant cousins.

Wanda Dearth was the great granddaughter of Ole and Mari Finnestad. Had Wanda's mother, Lillian not been mentioned (with her maiden name) it's questionable that I would have been able to track down the rest of that side of the family and connect them to Ole and Mari.
