Margaretas family 1900-1940


In 1897 Magaretas grandmother Inez was born in Gothenburg.  Her mother was Hedvig from the village of Lund in Tösse. She was born in an area known for all skillful iron workers in the county (län) of Dalsland, some 200 km north of Gothenburg. It is close to the western road north along lake Vänern to many skisport resorts, so we had good opportunities to visit the area. The film here is from such an occaision. Hedvig married Jöns. A tailor master from Anderslöv in Skåne and had 8 children. Two of these, Ester born 1890 and Agda born 1892 both in Gothenburg, emigrated later to USA. They are part in the emigrant section of this site.

Hedvig and Jöns marriage was in April 1890 in Gothenburg.
