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.

Lydia at 20


1910 Lydia Abrahamson - 20 years old
This photo was recently discovered by my second cousin Ingemar as he went through a bag of papers and photos found as he was cleaning out his late mother's home. My grandmother Lydia in 1910 at 20 years old. She  had just arrived in the U.S. less than a year before. This picture of the lovely Lydia is one I will truly cherish. How can I ever thank you enough Ingemar?
