I am looking for any Grant that came from SWEDEN. My Great Grandfather, Jacob Grant came to the US in 1881 and settled in Phila. Pa.. I am hitting a brick wall and would love to find my family. He married Catherine (Weller?). She was born in Germany.

Thanks

Hi
I have just started my own detailed Family tree (Grant), however I came across information about the Grants in Norway, this was in an old document entitled "The Crondale Text". I will look it out for you but am unsure if its any help. It goes back to the Grants origin as vikings and then coming to Scotland and then here to Ireland, but some of the family went back to live in what's now known as Oslo.
Let me know if this is relevant its very general.
By the way my name is Mary Grant, Donegal Ireland. Bye

Oh Mary, thank you. I will take any and all info. You never know, one thing can lead to another and at the very least, I'll enjoy reading the history.
Thank you again. It is very much appreciated!

Hi
I am looking for Herbert Grant's ancestry. I believe they migrated from Europe to Jamaica, West Indies. Herbert was born around 1890. Anyone with a migration list from Europe to the Caribbean would be very helpful.

Michelle, have you found any more details on our missing family? I wish my dad would have lived long enough to know he was German and Swedish. He always wondered about that. I hope you and your family are well. I hope to hear from you.
