Westergard is a Danish name (spelled differently in Denmark, however) and the Danes were part of the group of Scandinavian people we call Vikings. Half my ancestors were from Denmark and Sweden, and more than likely were Vikings. The other half were from England ( see the Artist as a Beefeater). The Vikings visited England often to rape and pillage.

There's a good chance all my parents' ancestors got acquainted before my mother and father met.
