HI Hazel,My mother's parent were Jacob Asplund and Klara Lindstrom. They lived onAland (with an umlaut over the "A") Island in the Baltic Sea about half way between Sweden and Finland at the end of the archipeligo which extend north eastward to the Island.There were 8 children in my Mother's family. Two girls and 6 boys. Two of the men came to this country but only one stayed. My mother and her brother Hugo both came to New York city through Ellis Island. Hugo settled in New Jersey and was there until his death in 1942. Her brother Arthur returned to Sweden and I have two first cousins still aliveover there, his children. One cousin still alive in this country, Hugo's child. I have been to Sweden and Asplund is not too uncommon there. If you look in the S.S. death files you will see there have been quite afew Asplunds in this country. Off hand I see no direct relationship between us other than the name.Sorry about that.Good luck on your research.TomP.S. I was born in 1918.
