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.

Genealogy Day in Sweden - Three Swedish-American Sisters

Today, March 19, is Genealogy Day in Sweden.
Although the "roots" of our family tree are in Sweden, today I especially remember and honor three Swedish sisters, founders of our family's American "branches".
