More pictures of Amy

Posted by PicasaHere is the only picture that I know of that is of where Amy (Nanny) lived with her mother Amalia and Lily, and Karl while her mother took borders , and did her seamstress work from home. This is also presumably where Victor bloomquist became a border, and later her husband. If any of you have different info, please let us know!

Forget me nots

Some of you may remember that our parents, and even grandparents were looking for information on certain ancestors. One of those individuals was Katherina Lovisa Petterson. She was Amy's father's ( Karl Gustav Johansson) mother. We have a little information on her, but Amy and Berger, even on their mission to sweden were never able to find information on her parents. I know they felt compelled to find the information, and even hired someone while in Sweden to help them( this was mentioned in a letter) but no one to our knowlege has found this information yet. I will let you all know what we do have , and if anyone has more let us know. Or, if anyone has a desire to search for those records that would be great too!!

The Lundevall home

Hey ...doesn't this photo bring back some memories? I wish we had some more pictures of their home. I would love to see some of the inside, or some older photos. If you have any ,pass them along! I hope all of you are doing well.

We finally got dad out of the hospital after his 8 day stay.Dad has had problems with his heart ( Atrial fibrillation) .He hopes he can stay out of there now! Dad came home with an oxygen tank, but says it is not too bad. He will probably not have to use that for too long.
