Thanks Eileen: I sent a message to your old email address and now forwarded it to the new one so hope it gets through. I have been doing research for my family in Sweden and in return for the wonderful help I got from a Swedish gentleman,Sam Blixt, I offered to help find Canadian relatives if anyone was interested.Sam is a genealogist and hosts a radio program in Sweden for the purpose of helping people find their roots. He got a request from a person who wanted to find out about Carl J. Bloomquist who had come to Calmar, Alberta from the USA. I found info. in some local history books re Calmar, one small one written by Viola, was very helpful. I sent this info. to Sam some time ago. He has put Ruth Gundarsson in touch with the Swedish relatives ofBloomquist and they have asked her to find living relatives here in Alberta as Ruth is coming to Edmonton in July. This is my understanding of the letter I received from Ruth.Sam gave Ruth my name and address.
