Daniel and Lalou Holdt's kinship with

Lauge Koch:

10th cousin twice removed


Lauge KochIn 1921, the Danish explorer Lauge Koch traversed the northern shore of the Arctic Riviera, a long section of Greenland's northeast coast that has too little precipitation to breed glaciers. Contrary to the public conception of northern Greenland as a vast icecap second only to Antarctica, the snow-free summer tundra along the coast blooms with wildflowers each July. Koch spotted an obvious island that he suspected could be farther north than the cape and named it Kaffeklubben-Coffee Club Island-for his informal group of geologists.
