Hi Tom,
I think by the spelling of your last name that you are from Sverige? The Chisago County Historical Society might be helpful to you, to contact them. As you might know, Wilhelm Moberg did his research for his Emigranter books there in that county, and there were so many emigrants from Småland that settled in that area.

Most of the towns in Chisago County have a sister city in Småland, so lots of ties to both areas.

Chisago county also has these other historical societies:

findagrave.com might have information for them. You can choose which state, and even which county.
