The family website "Släktbild" is launched

Today we launch the website "Släktbild" for the Wiberg and Blomberg descendants worldwide. The primary purpose of this website is to help the family community to inventory and identify the persons in our old family photographs, probably hiding in shoeboxes and closets in the homes of many of us. But, the purpose is also to share results of genealogical research and, by all means, help keeping the family anecdotes alive. As "family" in this case we count ancestors and descendants from Knut and Jenny Wiberg and their siblings. They grew up in Fellingsbro parish in Västmanland, Sweden, during the late 19th century. Many of the persons emigrated to America where lots of descendants live today. Knut and Jenny eventually moved to Stockholm but are nowadays resting in the Spånga parish cemetery. More...

This is Knut and Jenny Wiberg. Jenny who was born Blomberg was the daughter of the schoolteacher Karl Magnus Blomberg in Ytter Ekeby, Fellingsbro parish. He is the one sitting in the logo of this website.

Widberg, Viberg or Wiberg?

The family name Wiberg is used in different spellings by different branches of the family of today. There is varieties as Widberg, Viberg and Wiberg. Already in the old records from 18th century different spellings occur, probably depending on which priest or military administrator that happened to be at the pen. But, what made the two brothers Karl-Gustav Widberg (b. 1860) and Knut Wiberg (b. 1863) to choose to spell their names in different ways?
