Wendell Rollins, an Olympian (and Distant Relative)

Peloton at 1948 Summer Olympics

When I have reached a dead-end while researching my family's roots, one of my last steps is to simply google the person's name.  When I first started exploring, this technique led me to an online genealogy of a distant relative in Sweden which filled in a great deal of the family beyond Great Grandpa Olof's voyage across the Atlantic.  On a few occasions, it has surprised me with some amazing facts about my family members.
