The Christiansens Migrate to America

This post was originally posted in February 2011.  This is an update with new information shared by Jack Rasmussen.

Not everyone who emigrated to Zion stayed.  We have had two histories submitted this past week that tell us of families that  came, didn't like it here and returned to Nebraska where others with the same feelings eventually gathered.  We share with you now the history of the Lars Christiansen Family.

Pleasant.  Anton I died at sea enroute to the USA from Denmark.  Sena Christiansen married Hans Rasmussen; and the Rasmussens listed are their children. Chris Christiansen was born on the way back to Omaha in Columbus Nebraska."

"In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we have come from."
