Thanks for the tip. If I can help you in your search for American family members, just let me know. I may know some websites in various states that will help you in your search. Do you have any idea which states you may be searching in?
I have made my Swedish ancestor tree in ancestry.com private for a while until I get all my references verified and more family members on it but I can give you access to it, if you would like. My "real" email address is email@example.com
so if you want access to my tree or would like some state internet sites, please write me there. I hate to put too much on open public email places like this one.
I hope to find more Swedish ancestors and then visit them in Sweden. I have been to Norway (Stavanger and Oslo) a few times on business but haven't made it to Sweden. A few times in Norway, I was mistaken for a Norwegian native (until I opened my mouth and spoke only English)since I do have some Scandinavian features. I know some Danish but no Swedish yet.
