We have received a kind offer of assistance from Nancy Wallerstedt , a lady very familiar with Oakland. Her overall knowledge of Oakland history, coupled with her expertise with Lutheran church records will be a major asset as the majority of the first Swedish settlers were Lutherans. Nancy is not on line but is available for regular mail queries. She can be reached at the following address:
Nancy Wallerstedt, 1350 County Road K, Oakland, NE 68045
