(Eskimo for Hello!)
We had an opportunity to meet new family members in late January, 2003. Visiting from Alaska were Eleanor Roehl and Natalie Ezwiler, both of whom live in Anchorage. They are daughters of Richard T. and Golina (Wassily) Weedman. Richard, now deceased, was in the Air Force stationed at Elmendorf Air Force Base and while there, met Golina, who is a native Alaskan. There were seven children of this marriage including Eleanor and Natalie.
For some time, there has been a desire to meet Weedman family members with whom little contact had been made. In the meantime, in Sandusky, OH which is where Richard was from, some of the cousins of the Alaska Weedmans were getting started on genealogy and found this web site. Inquiries were made and the two branches of the family were put in contact with each other.
Vicki (Taylor) Kimberlin, a daughter of Rose Marie (Weedman) Taylor invited Natalie and Eleanor to Sandusky and they arrived on January 30th for a brief visit.
Stories of life in Alaska in the village of New Stuyahok proved most interesting! And, we were told their brother, Tom Weedman, won the Newhalen/Iliamna Winter Carnival Memorial Sled Dog Race in 2002 and this was on the Internet.
Also greeting the visitors from Alaska were sisters of Vicki that included Judy, Becky, and Dianna as well as their uncle, Ronald T. Weedman of Sandusky.
