Anton Seim I & II

My great grandfather, Anton Seim, born, Norway, 1887
Me, Anton Seim, born, Wisconsin, USA, 1983
My great grandfather died in 1951, so I never knew him, but I've always been quite proud of the fact that I bear his name.

This is he and his wife Johanna on their wedding day on June 28, 1914:
They were both born in Norway and spoke Norwegian at home.
