Searching for Info.on Deceased Relative born in New Sweden
- My name is Judith Lund. I live in Prescott Valley, AZ, but was born
and was raised in Connecticut. My late grandfather was born in New
Sweden in the 1880's. His father may have been one of the original
settlers that came over from Sweden in 1870. There is a good
possibility that my grandfather was given an English name when he was
born in New Sweden. I just recently found his obit. in among papers
that I had. I have both his parents names. My grandfather's surname
was Sandell. I understand that many records were lost in a fire at
the New Sweden Town Hall in 1970 so I cannot obtain info. from there.
It is a good possibility that my great grandfather's name was Olof
Olson but I am trying to find out for sure.The obit. lists Olof
Sandell. I am hoping that somebody up in the New Sweden area may be
able to help me with this. Thank you.
