This year I decided to add birthdays and anniversaries to my blog mix. Each month I will post a "roll call" of those who came before me ~ it is a listing of the birthdays and anniversaries of my Kocevar/Kochevar & Lidman ancestors who were born or married during the month. I use a cutoff year of 1910 for privacy concerns. As you can see Norway, Slovenia, Sweden, and the United States (Minnesota) are represented.
Do we share any of the same ancestors? If so, I would love to hear from you and hear all about them.

Note: The number in brackets [ ] is the individual's RIN (record identification number) or the couple's MRIN (marriage record identification number) in my genealogy program. If there is a word after an individual's name, it is his/her farm/village listed in the Bygdebok.
Come back and check out next month's roll call!
