    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.

    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.
