Norwegian Couple Living in California Find Out Neighbors Are Long-Lost Cousins

May 1, 2020

Kjetil Njoten moved with his wife and daughter to La Cresenta, California just a few months ago, from a small Norwegian island that has a population of just 30 people. Shortly after they moved, California’s stay-at-home order went into effect. As they got to know their new neighbors from a safe distance, Njoten was shocked to learn that a man who lived just four houses down the block had family from the same tiny island. Turns out, they share a great-great-grandfather, making them cousins!
