So That′s Where My Interest in Astronomy Comes From...? I just received very interesting results from a person who apparently has been engaged in extensive genealogical research into the family Munkhammar. Apart from known facts, such as the origin of the name coming from the leading blacksmith at the iron factory in Munkfors, there was a surprising piece of information. The second man on the moon, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin is - way back - a relative of mine. I couldn′t attempt to describe how, though, but I suppose that due to the massive migration from Sweden to the US once, many Swedes have relatives there.
