Flemming Holm’s History of the Holm and Birkholm Families

In 2000, Flemming Holm finished writing his family history and memoirs entitled Temporary Assignments, and sent printed copies to various family members. I am editing parts of it to post here.

So far, I have posted the first chapters which deal with the history of the family in Denmark and their new beginning in Canada in 1929. I’m also matching photos with the stories, making an illustrated version.

Some people mentioned have died since 2000. Where I know the date of death, I have added a note in square brackets, e.g. [d. 2004].

My father had a particular interest in the health conditions that may have been passed down through the family, and noted them in his history.
