My grandmother Violet Nordsrom-Mundt's (born Chicago 1910) father was Gustaf (maybe Gustav) Petter Nordstrom from Farosund Gottland Sweden (born 1870). He came to Chicago through Canada after doing some logging. His family had some ferry Captain experience in Farosund. Apparently he's the only one from that side of the family that came to the US. His father was Petter Albert Nordstrom (born 1842 also from Farosund).
I'm also looking for my grandmother's (Violet's) family. Her mother came to Chicago with a family of 8 through Ellis Island from Sater, Dalarna Sweden. She was Anna Regina Hager born in 1874. At least one of her siblings moved to Indiana (farming) and most of them apparently moved to Idaho and joined the Morman Church. Names I have in their backgrounds include Erick Magnus Erickson Hager (born 1844) from Gestafa Dalarna Sweden; Fredricka Romlin (born 1846) from Dalarna; Christina Caroline (or Carolina) Terslund; Johan Andersson Romlin; Erick Anderssson; and Anna Kajsa Sellberg. Those are names from the late 18th century and early 19th century and some of them likely remained in Sweden.
I'm living in Germany now for a few years and would love the opportunity to meet some relatives.
