I am looking for family ancestors and descendents in Sweden. My grandfather, Albin,as a single young man, together with his brothers Ben and Carl, traveled from Malmo to Copenhagen and hence to the USA on the ?Lucetenia?/Lusitania arriving in 1907. The brothers emmigarted again to Manitoba in ~1911, became naturlized Canadians, and chandged their names to Walld.  
I have photos of his mother and sisters, ?Karin/Carin, Hulda,and Nellie as young women in 1870. I also have a photo of their father taken by F. Holmstedt, Kristianstad, Ostra, Stargatan 9.  
Any information re: either his background or current family in Sweden would be appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

I do not speak/understand Swedish, so am hoping I have entered info in the right place.

Hello Marnie!

I think we are relatives, because my grandmother´s father was named Albin Wall and was born in Knislinge March the 1st 1883, as Albin Frisk. In the year 1900 he served as an artillery soldier in Kristianstad and he had a relation with a maiden, Ingar Svensdotter, my great grandmother. One year later, in 1901 my grandmother Thilda, (Hilda), was born in Kristianstad.

In another document, not mentioned here, he arrived onboard s/s "Lake Simcoe", sailing  from Liverpool to St. John, arriving there on the 13th of April 1903. He travelled together with Bernt O. Frisk, (could be his brother), and the final destination was Karl Frisk, 430 LaSalle Drive, Chicago, (most probably one of his other brothers). He must then been home in "the old country", at least twice.

I have just started to investigate as much as possible about our family and this part is, of course, one of the most exiting! I can give you more details if we could establish a connection and I´ll really hope you will revert with your comments asap!

Best regards from                 e-mail:,     you could also find me on facebook.
