Hi Ron:
Thanks for responding to my message.

My great grandfather's name and place of birth is as follows: 7 Apr 1847
Storkyrkoforsamlingen, Stockholms stad, Stockholms lan, Sweden .

On 26 Nov 1877 at Age: 30
he Christina Maria Olsdotter Vase, Varmlands lan Sweden. She was born 30 Apr 1854 Vase, Varmlands lan, Sweden.

They had a daughter Lydia who died as an infant 27 Oct 1878
Karlstad,,Sweden who died a month later and was buried in Karlstad, Sweden. 17 Nov 1878.

The immigrated through Stockholm come to Boston, Massachusetts, America in 1881.

My friend who does research in Sweden thought his father was Jon Hellstrom (1805) and mother was Sara Andersdotter 29 Sep 1805 Rosensjo, Karlskoga, Oregro lan, Sweden) and that He had a brother by the name of Erik Hellstrom 11 Apr 1845.

We have found quite a bit on her family, but I can't seem to find anything further.

I am not sure when or if the name was changed from Hellstrom to Hillstrom. I have quite a bit put on Ancestry and I will go back and see what other records I have.
Thank you so much, you have given me a lot of info. If you have Ancestry, you can see the pedigree there under Mork-Milici family tree.

I can scan the records I have from the old family Bible and perhaps you could tell more about the spelling.

Thanks Jeri Milici Mork,
