I'd like further information on the Petterson Family that came to Boston and changed their name to Landstrom in Waltham, MA. in 1883. Victor, born 7/18/1860 in ? Karlskogen, Sweden, Eric, Jacob (Landstrom) Petterson, Andrew P. Landstrom, Oscar Landstrom, Louise Landstrom and John Landstrom. There was possibly another sister named Augusta.
Victor Landstrom married Anna Matilda Josephine Larson (from Goteburg) on 10/27/1888 in Waltham at the Swedish Church there. They had five children: Victor who was a medic in WWI and married Julia Coughlin who was born in 1888. They had three children Ellen, Margaret and Robert. Margaret married someone with the surname Pearce and they had a daughter named Martha who married a man with the surname of Culbertson.
I have family information on the whole family here in the USA, but wish to know more specific dates and infomation about their parents and relatives in Sweden.
