I am looking for my American relatives, perhaps still living in the Oakland area:
My greatgrandfather's brother Sven Andersson, born June 13, 1859 in Önnestad, Skåne province (Kristianstad county), Sweden. Grew up in Nävlinge parish. Mother Bengta Jönsdotter, later married Måns Kristiansson.
Sven married Anna Andersson, born May 30, 1857 in Svensköp parish. She had a daughter, Anna, born June 26, 1878 before the marriage.
Sven & Anna and the daughter Anna came to Oakland Nebraska in 1885. They settled not far from Oakland. Sven died there in 1897. Anna died at an Oakland hospital on May 10, 1930. She then had a son, two daughters and six grandchildren.
This comes from an obituary in a Swedish-American newspaper in 1930. After this year I have no information on the family.
Looking forward to hearing more about this family!
Gott Nytt År (Happy New Year) all of you,
