Please know that this blog is very much a work in progress. I will be adding information to each blog post as I have time and as new information or photos are, please, come back often to see if anything new for your particular ancestor has been updated. I welcome your participation in fleshing out each post. There are some descendants about whom I have a great deal of information and some about whom I know very little.

I have served as the Secretary/Archivist for the Forsgren Family Association for many years and have acquired a lot of material. It is my desire to make it all available through this blog so that all may benefit. But I am only one person and there are thousands of Peter A descendants. Please contact me and help by notifying me of errors or clarifications or to submit information and photos you might have.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on your point of view, all the descendants of Peter Adolph Forsgren have been very the task of uploading all the photos, data and documents for this branch of the Forsgren siblings will be a very time-consuming process.... so...

Thank you so much for your patience!! ENJOY!!!

About Me

Hi! I am Adele Manwaring Austin - a Boise, Idaho native. Typical Mormon lady and mom, compassionate, thoughtful, security conscious (I like my comfort zones). I am a streams and mountains girl (as opposed to my California-born husband who is sun and oceans). Appreciate nature, well-written literature, realistic fine art, musical theater and the cooking channel.

Religious, steadfast. Served an LDS mission to Guatemala as a single young woman (1966-1968) and another to Chile as a Senior missionary with my husband (2006-2007). Feel we have LOTS of wonderful, interesting and quirky friends who also like to travel, discuss the world's problems & play games.

Career? I am (was) a librarian from High School till I married and became a mom. Always and foremost I am a genealogist. I love the thrill of the hunt. I love to learn about family history, I love to teach family history and especially- I love to use all the wonderful on-line sources that are available to us in this amazing electronic age! Now, in our retired years, my other career is preparing my husband meals he delights in (and requests) and being a grandmother.

I am the Archivist for the John Olaf Forsgren Family Association and will be employing many means of getting all the "paper" at my house into a public format that can be used by all descendants.

This one represents the ugly years...
You know, middle school, high school...!
