Special posting by Kjell Nordqvist of Sweden on Thursday, September 25, 1997
Email: kjell.nordqvist@telia.com

We think the following appeal may be of interest to emigrant descendants in Chisago as people from our area seem to have settled there. Karlskoga Does this name sound familiar to you? Karlskoga is a Swedish city (32000 inh.) about halfway between Stockholm and Oslo. More than 5000 people emigrated from here to America between 1849 (the gold rush in California) and 1935. Our Heritage Society has an emigrant section in its archives, and we are steadily working with emigrant research. If you happen to have roots here, please let us hear from you. Write to Hembygdsf/reningen, Torget 10, 691 31 Karlskoga, or send e-mail to kjell.nordqvist@telia.com We will be thrilled to hear the story of your emigrated ancestors and get copies of obituaries, citizenship papers, travel documents, pictures etc. for our emigrant records. In return we are willing to send you material from our archives that may be of interest to you.

I'm doing family history research and need your help. I am looking for marriage information on a Henry SLATER. Henry Slater is my great great grandfather. Henry Slater's last name could have been spelled "Schluter". He was married in Chisago County in January, 1884, to a Kellen ADELMAN. I need to know what day in January they were married. The name of the church and the priest if possible. I don't know for sure, but it could be a Catholic church. Any information on the marriage would be greatly appreciated. Also if you can find me any information on Kellen Adelman is greatly needed. If possible can you send me copies of any documents you find. If there is any fee for doing the research, please let me know. E-Mail me, or call me at home. Phone # (605) 528-3131.

BJORKLUND, WISTROM posted by Gunnar Axell on Monday, March 3, 1997
Email: gunnar.axell@norrkoping.mail.telia.com

Erik Reinhold WISTROM born June 16, 1868 and his cousin Carl Axel WISTROM born July 13, 1858 in Orsa, Dalacarlia Sweden departed Gothenburg in Sweden May 9, 1893 with S/S Cameo via Grimsby- Liverpool in England. On the same ship traveled further 15 persons from Orsa and all of them should go to Harris, Minnesota. (Among them: families with the name ERSON-RASK -10 persons, NORD and NORBERG). Six years earlier Erik Reinhold's brother Johan Fredrik WISTROM born Dec.16, 1860 and a relative to him Carl August BJORKLUND born in 1860 both in Orsa, Sweden went to North-America September 23, 1887. They left Gothenburg with S/S Romeo via Hull-Liverpool in England with nine other inhabitents of Orsa and they all wanted to go to Chisago (can possibly been Chicago - indistinct passenger- list). I should be very much grateful if somebody want to help me with information about Wistroms or Bjorklund. Thank you!

BOYER, BURNS, ENGREN, FOLSON, JOHNSON, NELSON, NUMERO, WALSH posted by Earl Patterson on Sunday, February 16, 1997
Email: earl@cncnet.com

I have been searching over 20 years for the birth place of my Grandfather Charles Arty NELSON (Karl Artig Nilsson) in Smaland, Sweden (Kronoberg Lan). All the census and his civil war records give as birthplace is Smaland. He and Carl Magnuson came to Kandiyohi Co., in1859 from Chisago Co. I believe the John Artig family of Chisago Co., are related. If any one has info on any of the following names I would be glad to share what I have on them, including the above. Peter FOLSON, Eric ENGREN, Ernest BOYER, David BURNS, K.O. JOHNSON, James NUMERO and James WALSH. Thank You.

CLOVER, KOBERSTEIN posted by Terry Koberstein on Tuesday, October 7, 1997
Email: koberstein@compuserve.com

Looking for information about the KOBERSTEIN surname. My grandfather Albert KOBERSTEIN was born in Lincoln county, MN and the family had lived in Goodhue county before that. Now for the connection, he married in Oregon Mildred LA FLEUR, a daughter of Alice LA FLEUR (nee CLOVER), born in Sunrise and married and died in Harris, Chisago county, MN. It seems probable there was some family connection while they were so close in Minnesota that led to the marriage in Oregon. Any ideas?

DANIELSDOTTER, DANIELSON, JOHANSSON, LINDQUIST, NILSDOTTER posted by Karen Lemes on Thursday, October 30, 1997
Email: karenlemes@earthlink.net

I have just spent the afternoon inputing data I found last fall at Zion Lutheran church in my research article on the Johan Gustaf (JOHANSSON) LINDQUIST (1847-1913) family which arrived from Granhult 1881-1882 in Chisago city. I will be returning Monday, Sept 29, 1997 to do more searching, especially for Johan's wife Emma DANIELSDOTTER Lindquist's (1851-1933) brother Nils Johan DANIELSON (Aug 15, 1855- ). Nils and Emma's parents Daniel JOHANSSON (1824-1900) and Maria NILSDOTTER JOHANSSON (1814-1898)were members of Zion Lutheran church. Any suggestions you can give me, or please add me to your list of those searching.

GUMMERSON, PEHRSSON, TUVEY posted by Dale Tuvey on Monday, September 1, 1997
Email: tuvey@whidbey.com

I am looking for information on the PEHRSSON family(ies) who lived near Lindstrom and Center City beginning in 1853, specifically Tufve Pehrsson and Nels Pehrsson. Also looking for information on Magnus GUMMERSON who lived in the area at the same time. I am particularly interested in Tufve Pehrsson's children Jons, Kerstin, Hanna or Johanna, and Christine. I am not sure of the last name that any of them may have taken. They may have taken the name of Pehrsson (or some variant) or Tuvey. There are other children (one of whom is my great-grandfather) that took the name TUVEY, but at least one child did retain the name of Pehrsson. I have no idea about any married names that the girls may have had.

Email: bshoemkr@ptialaska.net

My great grandmother, Caroline JOHNSON, immigrated to Minnesota from Kuramola, Sweden back in the spring of 1877. In her obituary, it states that she settled at Spring Lake (North Branch), Minn.

I would like to start a paper trail on her naturalization records but would like to settle this info about "Spring Lake". Any help out there from any Minnesotan geography buffs?

Email: RoystonTaylor@compuserve.com

Hello, I am trying to trace information about my Great Grandfather Adam LYONS who emigrated from England to America in 1856 and started life in Minneapolis & St Pauls, Minnesota. He was a physician & surgeon. This is what I found on the 1900 census: Village of Harris, Chisago Co, Minnesota Lyons, Adam b. Mar 1859 age-31 (this is what the census says but he must have been 41 or born 10 years later) He had been married for 8 yrs. He was born in England as was his mother and father. He immigrated in 1887 and had been in the U.S. for 13 yrs and was naturalized. He lists his occupation as physician and surgeon and owned his home. Lyons, Zaidee, his wife, b. Dec. 1869 age 30. Also married 8 yrs and has had 2 children, both of them living. She was born in Iowa, her father b. in New York and her mother b. in Ohio. Lyons, Ethel, daughter, b. Aug. 1896 age 3. She was b. in MN, her father in England and her mother in Iowa. Lyons, Harold, son, b. Mar 1900 age 4 months. He was b. in MN, his father in England and his mother in Iowa. The name Zaidee is one I haven't heard before but I noticed much of the population of Harris was Swedish.
