My name is Lisa Hemming. I have just started to work on my genealogy. I have ever little done, but am willing to share what I do have. I am currently working on information on my Great Grandmother, Ellida Matilda Anderson. She lived in Malmo, Sweden before moving to America to be with her future husband, Futhiof Benhardt Berg. I do know that they both came to New York in the earily 1900's. My Great Grandfather Fred, as he was called, came to America before Ellida to establish residency. He became an American citizen in 1907. They then moved to Alleghney County; Pittsburgh PA. This is where my great Aunt Madeline Beatrice and my Grandfather Harry Bernhardt were born. Next their family moved to Chicago, Illinois. This is where Ellida contracted Tuberculosis and died shortly afterwards. Most of her things were burned to prevent anyone else from contracting the disease. Due to the destruction of many important papers I have had a difficult time locating more information.
If you have any information or would like some of mine, please contact me.
Other family surnames: Hemming, Donnelly, Berg, Furlong, Anderson, McNichols, O'Neil, Grant, Regan, Low, McDermott, Corbeil, Jobe.
