Re: Nystroms in Worcester MA

I don't believe that I am related to Gus Nystrom, but I grew up and live in Worcester, as did my father, Paul Nils. His father, Nils Gunnar Nystrom, immigrated from Sweden when he was 8 years old with his father Axel. Apparently when they moved to America they changed their name from "Karlson" to Nystrom, but I can't find out why. If anybody has any explanation why (it's not like he changed it to Smith), please let me know. Also, is there one specific region in Sweden where the Nystroms are from?
