looking for my family tree
My grandfather Donald W. Dahlstrom, was born one of 7 children of Louis Ana Dahlstrom in 1921. Halvard, Louis' father was a Larson in Sweden but changed to Dahlstrom in MN.
Halvard Larsson Dahlstrom, born 1841
Wife: Karin, born 1842
Father: Lars Halfvardson, born 1814
Mother: Ingeborg Nilsdotter, born 1815
Brother: Nils Larsson (Dahlstrom) 1843-1914
Sister: Marit Larsdotter 1852
Children: Per 1871
This family settled in the Alvarado, Warren, Oslo, Marshall Co., MN area in the late 1800s.
I am doing research on my grandfather's line, Gust Dahlstrom, son of Halvard (Larsson) Dahlstrom. I just saw your post. Thank you for the addl generation.
The family moved to Turlock, California. There is an older daughter, Mary Lundell who moved to CA first. The rest of the family followed late 1890/early 1900s. Lars was also called Louis(even on the death record). Per was called Peter and died in MN 1889.
The Turlock Historical Society put out a periodical, The Turlock Pioneer. In Spring 2000, vol 2, no. 1, is an article on the family with pix of the family, including grandchildren. From this article, there was another daughter who died in infancy, but I have no name.
What documentation do you have for the names of Halvard's
mother and father and sibs? I have Halvard born in 1838,
death date 1930, buried in Turlock Memorial Park...my parents are also buried there.

I just saw your posting from 2000.
I am the granddaughter of Gust Dahlstrom, brother of Louis, named Lars, but known as Louis (even on the death record in California.
The family moved to Turlock, California at the turn of the century. I am also looking for information on this family line and an willing to share the information I have on Louis' siblings.
The Turlock Historical Society put out their periodical, The Turlock Pioneer, with an article on the family, in Spring 2000. There are pix of the family taken in 1916.
