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.

Friday's Faces from the Past - Esther Soderstrom Liljegren

This adorable little girl is Esther Anna Marian (Soderstrom) Liljegren. The second child and first daughter of my great aunt and uncle, Ruth Abrahamsson and Andrew Soderstrom.  I am sure the intent was just to photograph the baby but I love seeing the old car in the backround. It gives a sense of the times. And don't you wish the babies of today wore those cute frilly bonnets?

Esther, I have heard so many good things about you, I wish I had known you,
