Hi, I came across your posting when "googling" for August Wenberg and wonder if you can help? I am also looking for Wenbergs but I am actually in Sweden trying to trace what happened to my relatives who emigrated? "My" August Wenberg and his brother Aron left Odenas in Sweden (not far from Boras) in 1882. They were both born in the 1850's. Their Christian name was Bryngelsson, but I know that they changed their name to Wenberg. Aron settled in California. The information I have about August is that his nephew used to receive Christmas gifts from Joliet, IL from his uncle August. This is why I believe there may be a connection between our Wenbergs? August is supposed to have married a woman named Albertina and had two daughters, Anna and Elin.
Grateful for any information you might have. I have been in touch with a relative in the US, who perhaps contacted you?
