Hi board,

I am researching a Swedish emigrant, Thora* Amalia Therese Bergstedt b 1883, immigrated to US 1898. She married William Larsen b 1883 in MN who died 1933 in Chicago IL.

Their son Harry W Larson, b 1910 in MN, lived for many years according to unverified information in Round Lake Heights, perhaps at 1717 Bendwood Drive. Harry married Myrtle F Ggriffan 1911-1969, they had dau Jean 1932-1992 and dau Patricia 1933-1970. He worked as an master mechanic. Harry died 1970;

Chicago Tribune 1970;
Of Round Lake Heights, Illinois, beloved husband of the late Myrtle F., dear father of Jean Gorsuch and Patricia Ward; loving grandfather of seven. Services Saturday 11 AM at MacGillis Funeral Home, 350 Goodnow Boulevard, Round Lake, Illinois. Interment at Ridgewood Cemetery."

We seek a local genealogy society, or a local genealogist that might advice us how to research a theory we have on Thora Larson, nee Bergstedt, also living in Round Lake Heights and perhaps died there?

Much obliged,
