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 cemetary.

My name is Göran Blomqvist and I am a grandson of Manfred Wiberg, a son of Knut and Jenny Wiberg. You are most welcome to this family website and I look forward to develop it together with You!

The Swedish genealogical website "Rötter" (Roots)

Now, we are represented in the website "Rötter". They have for instance a database with old professional photographs under the name "Porträttfynd". Another new database is named "Emigrantforum" and this deals with data regarding people who have migrated to or from Sweden. I have posted a thread there regarding Aaron and Nelli Elmblade, the parents-in-law of Josef and David Blomberg. Hopefully this will help us to find out their background in Sweden. The link below will take you to "Rötter".

New tools on the website

In order to have a discussionboard, the site is now a proud member of "Bravenet.com". Their services are free, which means that we have to put up with some advertisments in our discussion board pages.
