Nedin in Sweden, related to Nelson?
Hello everybody. My name is Johan Nedin and I live in Sweden. Nedin is a very unusual surname here in Sweden, and I think that it is only two "independent" families here with that surename. Once I heard from my Grandfather Stig (Carl Victor) Nedin that we where somehow related to the Nelson family. He also mentioned something about Germany... Perhaps that supports the "Welsh" theory, or perhaps he was only making a strange joke...
In response to the Yugoslavian theory, all I can say is that my grandfather, my father and I look swedish but we have darker eyes than most swedish people (even though my father has blue eyes and I have green), and sometimes people think that I am from Italy, Spain or Turkey, but that is probably only because I am such a good dancer... ;) It would be nice if someone could answer this message, or perhaps follow up the Nelson thread... Bottom line: We are represented in Sweden too... Have a nice day! Johan
