The Sjölander family from Nordanstig 
in Sweden
page 1

In the 16th century  a farmer named Joen Walmarsson lived in Nordanbro, Hassela. Joen is the start of the pedigree that will be presented on this and coming sides. Most of the material is gathered from The Sjölander family history based on excellent work of genealogy performed by, among other,  Alice Hamner in the USA. My father Erland was also engaged in this work. For a great deal of material we have to thank the church of Mormon.  From Fred Bergqvist I have got information about the Knoppe-bransch and from a newly found relative, Dina Sjölander Coburn, I have got (hoping to get more) material about an earlier not known bransch of the family starting with Jonas Petter Sjölander who arrived to Galveston, Texas on his 20-years birthday March 25 in 1871. Much work have to be done -  but I have at least started.
