In the early 20th century my paternal grandparents, Rikard Severin Källman (1887-1968) and Lydia Abrahamson (1890-1978) immigrated from Sweden. I am exploring my Swedish ancestors immigrant journey to "Amerika" and life in Swedish Chicago. I am searching for cousins everywhere to share family stories, pictures, memories and new discoveries about our Swedish heritage and our family today.

134 years ago today

16 July 1881, 134 years ago today, Robert Albin Abrahamsson married Anna Karolina Karlsdotter in Håcksvik, Älvsborg, Sweden. He was 21 and she was 22. Whether it was a union of love we can't know as times and marriage were different then. But stories of them and their nine children all seem to be happy accountings passed on by their children to their grandchildren and great grandchildren and great great grandchildren. There are now close to 300 of us, direct descendants of the couple, my great-grandparents.
