About 2 years ago I decided to find out where exactly our family came from and who many of these people were. There had always been family stories about our ancestors and places they were from. So I decided to find out about our ancestors. Much of this information was given to me by Mr. & Mrs Stensson, our cousins who currently live in Sweden. Also, I should aknowledge all of the help given to me by Officer Osterman of the Swedish Police Department. His generosity is much appreciated. Also I must thank my wife Diane for all of her efforts in helping me locate our family ansestors. It is my hope that future generations will expound on this family history and preserve it as a cherished keepsake.
