    Swedish But Never Been There.

    As far as my geneology goes I'm Swedish. My grandfather came to this country at age 2 on a boat in 1897 so I am second generation. They were poor farmers and settled in the midwest. Back then they took the father's first name and added "son" to it so that is how I wound up with...

    I am half Swedish. My father is 100% Swedish.

    Both sets of his grandparents came to the US and didn't speak a word of English. They all learned on their own and worked very hard. I am proud of my Swedish heritage. I love to collect dala horses. One day I would like to visit Sweden.

    I am only 1/4 Swedish.

    As a child I would listen to my grandmother tell stories about living there. Not sure why they moved from there to canada as it seems they had a decent life back in sweden. But I guess they felt the need to strike out and prosper in the new world.
