My name is Sarah and I am doing genealogy research on the Lundgren’s and Andersson’s in my family that came from Sweden to America in the late 1800’s.I do believe that many of them remained in Sweden because I have found letters as early as the late 1800’s and as late as the 1930’s to my family from family in Sweden.
I have hit a road block in my research and I’m not sure where to go from here. The letters mention several names but I can not connect the names to the family. Several of the letters show that they were living in Kåhult, Kålbotten, and Gothenburg. Other places I have seen in my research are Medelplana Parish, and Lyrestad.
I have the below information but I would love to learn about more of my family and if there are things that have been left out such as siblings etc.

I have recently found letters to Anthony Lundgren from his cousin Harry Lundgren from NY. I did not know about this cousin. When I did some research I found that his father’s name is Andrew Lundgren and his mother’s name is Betty. I would like to know if Andrew Lundgren was a sibling to Lars.
If you are related or know about any relatives that are in the states or in Sweden I would love to hear from you.
