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.

Lydia Abrahamsson - Grandma's birthday

25 February 1890 my grandmother Lydia Abrahamsson was born in Östra Frölunda, Älvsborg, Sweden. This parish birth record notes that she was the 4th child of her parents Robert Albin Abrahamsson, a farm owner and his wife Anna Karolina Karlsdotter. Her mother Anna was 31 years old at the time of her birth. Lydia was ödopt or not baptized in the official church of Sweden.

Happy Birthday Grandma!
