This is a photo of Hilma Tjäder visiting her maternal aunt Mariet Nelson in Minnesota, probably in March 1910.
This is a photo of the Blomberg sisters. Standing from left: Hilma, Jenny and Alma. But who is the sitting woman? Could she maybe be their younger half-sister Ester Blomberg? Please let us know if you recognize her.
These two photos have belonged to Hilma and Henrik Tjäder. Who can identify the families?
Here are another two photos that have belonged to Henrik and Hilma Tjäder. Henrik is the man to the right in the left picture, but who are all the others? Are the photos perhaps from their visit in Amerika when they went back to Europe from China in 1933-34?

In 1899 Knut and Jenny (b. Blomberg) Wiberg built a small villa for their family in Duvbo outside Stockholm. It was the company "AB Hem på landet" (translates to "homes in the coutryside Inc") that started to build small villas for cityfamilies that wanted to move out from the city. Here are four photos of the villa from 1904.

This photo is among all the other Blomberg photos of my mothers. But who are they? Could it be the family of Richard Blomberg? Please let me know if you can identify them.
Here is a picture of Karl Magnus Blomberg in his older days. The woman to the left looks like his oldest daughter Hilma (married to the missionair Henrik Tjäder). Who can acknowledge her identity?
The problems of slow uploading, wrong fonts and missing pictures seem to continue during some periods every day. I am very sorry for this and until the problems are solved I recommend a visit at THIS BACK-UP SITE! /Göran

Now we can start using our Wiberg/Blomberg descendant discussion board in order to discuss the photos, genealogical research or just share the family anecdotes as they are remembered today. More...
Now we also have an interactive map on our site so that we can pin-point the locations where our common ancestors have lived. More...
Here are two portraits hanging in the hallway of the great granddaughter of Karl Magnus Blomberg, Kris Horton. To the left is Karl Magnus Blomberg himself, and to the right is his son Magnus Blomberg in his older days.
The left one is a photo of the sister of Karl Magnus Blombergs first wife Ingeborg Olsdotter, namely Marit Olsdotter, who emigrated to America. Several of the Blomberg brothers lived at her place their first time in the States. But, who is on the other picture? Is it sister Marit in her younger ages, or is this Ingeborg Olsdotter herself?
Here are two more photos of Richard Blomberg and his family.

I have noted the last days that there seem to be some kind of problem with the site (slow uploading, wrong font and missing pictures). I am very sorry for this and am just hoping that this problem is of a temporary nature. /Göran
Here are the latest contribution of family photos for our common family album. To the left is the Elmblades in the early 1880's. The two little girls Ella and Emilie Elmblade eventually married the two brothers David and Josef Blomberg. The photo in the middle is a portrait of a young Josef Blomberg and to the right is a group-picture taken when the family of Hilma and Henrik Tjäder visited Josef Blomberg in La Grange, Illinois in 1910. In that picture, we also find David and Magnus Blomberg - two of the brothers of Hilma and Josef.
Thanks to Roberta Blomberg in Maryland we have now the opportunity to read english translations of some of the letters Karl Magnus Blomberg wrote to his son Joseph, just about one hudred years ago! More...
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.
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?
