Does anyone have information about relatives of Nils Peter Wallin who moved from Sweden to Canada in the 1920s.

He was born in Kavlinga (Skone)in 1904 on April 21. He had one brother and one sister.

His principal occupation was that of a section foreman for the Canadian Pacific Railway (Alberta Division) in the Castor/Halkirk region. He passed away in Ponoka, Alberta, Canada, on August 1, 1976, age 72.

He married Petra Louise Bratsberg. She was at that time a rural school teacher and later became a well known school principal in Castor and in Halkirk.

They had 3 children, Jamie Herman Arnold Wallin (born May 23, 1929), Richard Otto Wallin (born June 4, 1931), and Mary Patricia Jean Wallin (born April 25, 1935; died October 22, 2009).

Anyone who can provide details of Nils Peter Wallin's brother and sister, and his father and mother, please contact me.
