Trove Tuesday

Trove Tuesday – George Slawson Christensen

Last week I shared articles for Niels John Christensen, the eldest son of Niels Christensen and Emma Godfree Slawson.  This week I am sharing articles for their second eldest son, George Slawson Christensen.

The first notice I found was his marriage notice
