Re: condolences for passing of Michael
In Response To: Re: condolences for passing of Michael ()
Michael and I discussed ancestry about 20 years ago. Koln is actually the German word for what we English-speaking people call Cologne, Germany.
As I recall, Michael told me his ancestors came from the Varmland region of Sweden. Their last name might have originally been "Johansson," probably anglicized to Johnson somewhere in the mists of time. He told me he wasn't able to trace his ancestors. He told so many stories in the hasty fifteen-minute conversations before and after performances that I wish I had written down more of them!
