I just joined this site and am trying to start the process of attempting to build my family tree. The family history on my father's site is very sketchy at best since my grandfather left Norway and settled in Honduras. His name (as far as I know) was Marensen Kristiansen Johannsen (b. 1896 in Fredriskstadt) and he was married to Pearl Anderson. My father's name was Morris Anderson Johnson (b. Apr 1936) and he was born in Puerto Castilla. One of the major issues is apparently all records were paper based and housed in Trujillo but lost in a fire many years ago per my Uncle John Anderson Johnson (b. June/July 1941). Some of my father's siblings were Wilhelm Johnson, Solveig Johnson, Karl Johnson, Mary Johnson.

If anyone can point me in the right direction to start, I would be greatly appreciative.

Trying to understand this. Your grandmother was my father's sister Pearl Johnson and your great grandmother Pearl Anderson was my grandmother?
