Can you hear me now? Hej, It’s me, Oscar the Web Troll. I posted my first message to you yesterday. You didn’t get it because I forgot to set up the message distribution for the VGS Scandinavian SIG Website. I did that this morning. So as I always say, “If you don’t get this email, email me back and tell me!” Seriously, I need to know that this system is working. If you can read this post, please let me know you received the email. Tack så mycket!
Hej, I am Oscar, the Web Troll! I come from Ödeshög, in Östergötland County, Sweden. I was named for Oscar Svensson, the grandfather of one of the members of your VGS Scandinavian Genealogy Special Interest Group. He came from Ödeshög, as well, back in 1887.
I am here to be the Website Assistant. I will help Larry with messages and keep updating the site. This will become a great Website to help you to research the genealogy of your Nordic ancestors.
I hope you don’t think I’m too ugly. That sort of comes with the territory for us trolls. You should have seen the guy they rejected for this job. In fact, here’s a peek:
Aren’t you glad you got me?
You’ll be seeing a lot more of me in the future. In the mean time, don’t forget our next meeting is at 10:00am Friday April 18, 2014 at Sea Breeze Regional Recreation Center.
