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.

Long ago friends identified

A week or so back I posted this picture of my grandmother Lydia, my great Aunt Anna and two unidentified friends. I was hoping a family member out there could identify those ladies. And someone did! Two cousins in the Abrahamson clan have identified "the lady to the right of Anna as Sister Emma Olsen, and sitting is Sister Anderson." Friends most likely from church they spent lots of time together over coffee and pastries, sometimes at the bakery. FIKA!

Thank you cousins Miriam and Frances. Now tell me this. Do you recognize anyone in this yearbook page from the Long Beach Polytechnic High School graduating class of 1950?
 Hint, hint...the cute young gal on the upper right.
