Where is the ancestral file? I have already located some information at, and some at
Brodurband's Family Tree Maker website. I have also printed out all the files at the LDS church.

Can you tell me which file it is?

Thanks for your reply

Ancestral file is one of the data bases for the Family History Library (LDS). You can search ancestral file by going to their web site . You will get a pedigree chart. Just type in what you are looking for.

Hi Zella.
I had already printed out the Ancestral file on the Karsjens family.

If you are the one that submitted the information, I have some updates for you.
The file showed my ggrandfather but no marriage or offspring for him.

I have most of the updated information on my computer now and can export it
to a GEDCOM format. If you would like a copy, my email address is

I know I have NON distant Karsjens relatives living in Minnesota, specifically my father's cousin and his children and grandchildren. But I do not recognize the names Ed and Elsie, so if they are related at all, it would be very distant from back in Ostfriesland (Germany).
