I was excited to see photos of some of my ancestors from Sweden. E.G.O. Hoglund was my great grandfathers brother. I have been searching my Swedish family as my daughter is living and teaching there and I now have a Swedish grand daughter. It would be nice to take the photos to Sweden with me this July. Please let me know the cost to send them. Thanks in advance.
My fathers dad died when my dad was 7 years old. He, his brother and mother went to Canada to be with his mothers family as she was born in Canada. Because of this we had very little contact with our American family. To now have pictures of some of our ancestors is awesome. Hans is my great grandmothers brother. Hans was born in Kallan (Transtrand) Sweden. In this photo are 5 boys. Hans and Christine had a girl also, but she died in 1894. Most likely in childbirth.
My daughter now lives in Sweden, is married and has a daughter born there. Another full circle.
Small world. Hans Johnson/Johanson is my great grandmother Albertina Hoglund (Johnson) brother. Hans Johnson and Christine Stone (Steen) had six children. Hans was born in Transtrand Sweden May 10, 1860 by Swedish records. Hand written on information from the Hoglund family show he was born on May 13, 1860. I found Swedish records and family records sometimes don't match. Also there are name changes. Swedish records show Hanson as Hans and Christines children's surname. It can be a little confusing to trace family.
Thank you Connie for finding these photos. You have put faces to my ancestors.
