Jens Thorsen Hellum and Karen Hellum are my great-great-grandparents.

Their daughter Thea Amanda married my great-grandfather Peder O. Stensland.

Their daughter Clara was my grandmother. She married the Rev. Ole Odland, and they were the parents of my mother Eunice Palma (Odland) Aucutt.

My name is Donald Michael Aucutt, and I live in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

What else can you tell me?
