Swedish Family Reunion

In Canada 1938 (2)I went to the reunion of my Swedish side of the family this last weekend in Saskatchewan.  It was roughly the 100th year since the first one of the group had immigrated from Sweden to Canada.  131 people came from many parts of Canada, the USA and Sweden.  It was great seeing people again, meeting new ones, and learning about my family’s history.  Above is a photo of some of the immigrants in Canada in 1938, and below is a video of their church’s bells.
