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.

Walpurgis Night

Walpurgis Night, an old pagan springtime ritual adopted by Christianity, is celebrated with bonfires, partying and drinking on the night of April 30 in Sweden. The welcoming in of Spring.

I just love spring and here is another reason to party-----today is my birthday!
