We are literally one big extended family, many of our families intermarrying down through the years.

Looking for family

My grandfather was Eddie Norman Blomquist, and my great-grandparents were Louis A. and Ragnhild Olson Blomquist from Hallock.  Louis and Ragnhild are buried in the Saron Cemetery.  I am wondering if I have any family in the area.  

I never knew my grandfather and only found out about my great-grandparents from Melton and Adeline Blomquist about 2001.  Then I lost touch with them.

I would love to get in touch with family members!
