A proud uncle, Curtis Stofferahn of Grand Forks, has researched family history for many years, tracing the Strand line back to the 1500s. He recently sent a note and Jaci’s photograph to a relative in Norway. A regional newspaper there ran the photo along with a brief account of Syvert Strand’s journey to America and his descendant’s beauty pageant success.
