Re: The Source and meaning of the Name
My understanding of the name is that it is from Sweden and the meaning is roughly translated as Little Birch Tree.
Where is your family from. M husband's ggfather was Anders Gustaf Olausen Bjorkegrenand came to the USA from Sweden in about 1855. His father and two sisters preseeded him. They settled in New York and he came onto Colorado. I would like to exchange information with you. I have quite a bit of information about the family.
