Hello Barb,

I am a great granddaughter of Carlos Enrique Strandgaard. He was married to Teresa Louise Font. They were both born on St. Thomas, an island in the Caribbean Sea (to the southeast of the United States) that was owned by Denmark/King of Denmark (part of the Danish West Indies) prior to 1917 when it was sold to the United States. They married in St. Thomas in 1888. They emigrated to the USA shortly thereafter and became the parents of my grandmother, her three sisters and a brother who were all born in New York City. Let me know if you would like any further information or can share anything you may have. I'm posting this through my brothers account: "revin1." Hoping you still are an active member and look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you very much. Joyce Bertoldo
