I am looking for relatives of my maternal grandfather. His name was John Elander and he was born in 1886 in Sweden.
Brothers: Jonas, Knute, ??, Conrad, (Granddad), Simon, Benjamin (who died as a child).
My mother believes that his family ran a lumber business in Avistabruk(??) Grandad's mother died when he was 12, and his father remarried. Granddad came to Canada in 1903 (?) with his younger brother Simon who was 15. I believe that all his older brothers were already in Canada.
I do not have the names of his parents or any other information.
I hope someone can help me.
