Helen och Annika Larsson, copyright PressPhoto.seWho are we?

We are two sisters living in Goteborg, Sweden and we have always been interested in genealogy and history. Our interest started in school in the mid 80´s, then genealogy was a subject field in school. Our interest was woken by a teacher who told histories after histories about exciting events that you can get and then we wanted to know about our relativies.

The year have passed and our interest have continued and gradually we have done research in different sides of our family and still we are far away from done! Genealogy have given us a lot of history about our ancestors and in the same time it have made that we have tied new contacts in our family. We have found old letters from "America" with sender addresses that we searched for on the internet - White Pages. (White Pages in the US - telephone directory). We gave it a shot and sent a letter to the same address and beliew that we got surprised that they were still alive and answered back to us. They became very happy, as we also did and this resulted in many letters back and forth and last summer (2005) we travelled the whole way to Montana and visited our relativies. It was a marvelous experience.

Annika is a member of Marks Härads genealogy society.
Helen is a subscriber of Swedish American Genealogist.

Crofters and soldiers

Our family is not of any noble birth (not yet any way), we come from peasants, crofters, soldiers and ramblers etc. But some are saying that our great grandmother worked at our kings castle in Stockholm.. and she never told who the fader of her child was... maybe some blue blood, this we will have to do more research about.
