Surnames: Banck Bancks
Looking for more information on my grandfather. Joined Swedish navy as a young teen then moved to America. Came through Barcelona aboard Yacht Nohab in 1923. Worked as a radio operator. Last residence in Sweden was Stockholm. Family lore is that he either had a twin himself or twin siblings who died in the bombings of London. S added to surname in America.

His parents were Gustaf Banck and Agnes Elizabet.

This whole branch of my family is a mystery. Any help appreciated.

Here is a tips wich could be your Eric Gustaf:
Father Carl Gustaf Bank born in Ledberg 01/23/1860
Mother Hilma Charlotta born in Vist 03/13/1862
Vist and Ledberg is situated in Östergötland
Children according to census for 1900
Gustaf Ivar born 1888 in Svarta, Sodermanland county
Anna Hilma Elisabeth born 1891 in Svarta
Eric Gustaf born 11/03/1900 in Uppsala.
Eric Gustaf lived in Stockholm around 1922-1926
In census 1900 the family lived on the address Agnar Nr 7 in Uppsala.
If you think this is your Eric Gustaf I have more information about his grandparents and maybe something about his sieblings. I am not related.

This is my Grandpa Eric!!!

Thank you thank you thank you. I can't begin to tell you how much this means to me. I will be thrilled with any information you could supply. I only recently found is naturalization application, which helped me locate where was from in Sweden.

I am moved beyond words to find my family across the lake. Are there by chance any descendants from his siblings?

I am new to all the posting and amazed at the help I'm getting. I hope someday I can pay it forward.

Hi!
Yes there are grandchildren to Erick Gustafs sieblings. I cannot here tell you there name, but if you will send your e-mail address you can get their names.
They, of course, do not know anything about our discussion here, so I don´t know if they are interested of contact and they do not know me at all.
