Här bodde min farmors mormors mor Anna Lena Svensdotter vid sin död 1902.

Jag kommer snart att skriva mer här på bloggen om Anna Lenas ättlingar varav många finns i USA!

The Isakson family


A couple of days I found this picture in my computer. I had scanned it a while ago and back then I had no clue about the people in the picture. Now, maybe a year later, I suddenly realized that this family has to be my great great grandmothers sister with her husband, children and grandchildren. A family I have spent lots of time searching for with no success. I had almost given up my attempts to find them, but because of this picture, I’m now more determined than ever to find them. They emigrated from Sweden to the U.S. in 1882 and so far I have no idea where in the U.S. they settled down, which is my biggest problem at the moment.

The older woman and man in the group are Sofia Charlotta Gustafsdotter, born August 12, 1849, in Norra Solberga parish and her husband Johan August Isaksson, born July 9, 1839, in Säby parish. They had six children when the emigrated and I believe probably all these children are in the picture but grown-up now.

Ida Charlotta, born May 9, 1870, in Norra Solberga parish
August Lovisa, born May 23, 1872, in Hult parish
Karl Oskar Ludvig, born February 3, 1874, in Hult parish
Anna Matilda (Thilda), born April 13, 1877, in Hult parish
Emma Albertina, born April 21, 1879, in Flisby parish
Hilda Rebecka, born October 30, 1881, in Norra Solberga parish

Here is another picture of the family, probably taken the same day as the first one.

If anyone recognize these people, please get in touch with me!
