Carlson Family

Leann's father's family has roots in Sweden.  My dad's parents were immigrants from Sweden in the early part of the 20th century.  Like many Swedes, they moved to Chicago and from there on to the midwest, namely South Dakota.  My father had a love of nature, as have many folks from Sweden,  and enjoyed hunting.  He died when I was 9 years old.
 
I have data that goes back to the 1700's on the ancestors in my Carlson lines.  Due to family that wishes to remain private, I have not published data to this website of the genealogy I know on this line.  There is much I can share privately.  Contact me if you wish to know more information.
