Unbeknowsnt to us -and most, we suspect - the Conrad family is from Denmark. As Jimmy explains it, his great great grandfather was named Conrad Hansen. This last name is rather ubiquitous in Denmark, so at some point the family switched to make their surname Conrad. Jimmy's father was conceived in Denmark, but his parents moved to the U.S. six weeks before he was born. This afternoon, Jimmy has met up with his grandmother's sister and her daughter, who live on the outskirts of Aarhus. They haven't seen each other for 20 years.
