JOHNSON - PEDERSEN
Lk i n g For Scandanavian Relatives
This is a picture of the Hjemkomst, a 76 foot viking sailing ship hand built
by Robert Asp, a teacher from Moorhead, Minnesota. He dreamt of building
this ship and sailing it to Bergen, Norway where his ancestors emmigrated
from. Although he died before realizing his dream, his children crewed the
ship on it's 6000 mile journey from Duluth, MN to Bergen Norway. The above
photo was taken by my grandfather who resided in the town of Hawley, MN where
the Hjemkomst was built. For more pics of the Hjemkomst voyage see
Tour: Heritage Hjemkomst Interpretive Center. For more info on the museum
it is housed at in Moorhead, MN see
