(1) Information from emigrant archives, Karlskoga Heritage Society, Sweden.
Karlskoga is a Swedish city (32000 inh.) about halfway between Stockholm and Oslo. More than 5000 people emigrated from here to America between 1849 (the goldrush in California) and 1935. Our Heritage Society has an emigrant section in its archives, and we are steadily working with emigrant research. If you happen to have roots here, please let us hear from you. Write to Hembygdsföreningen, Torget 10, 691 31 Karlskoga, or send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org We will be thrilled to hear the story of your emigrated ancestors and get copies of obituaries, citizenship papers, travel documents, pictures etc. for our emigrant records. In return we are willing to send you material from our archives that may be of interest to you. Contact Kjell Nordqvist.
