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.

Kelvyn Park HIgh School, Chicago, Illinois - class of 1945

A "shaky leaf" hint on Ancestry is often just a distraction for me but this time it looks as though my mother's Chicago high School yearbook was scanned.

Kelvyn Park High School, Chicago Illinois
Class of 1945 - my Mom, Grace Sevald

                 "GRACE SEVALD ...spends spare time inside, curled up with a good book, or outside cutting up the ice...tells unfriendly people to 'go fry ice'... blue eyes may brighten an office, but if prayers are answered she'll go to Bible school."

She didn't get that particular prayer answered. Mom entered the working world.
