Have been doing genealogy for many years.
My Swedish relatives immigrated to New Sweden Maine in 1871. Ola and Dorothea(she died that first winter)Falk with children: Nils, Karin(Carrie), and Hilda. They paid for their own way from Sweden and were given 100 acres of land in New Sweden Maine and were to clear a number of acres each year. My great-grandfather Nils, did not stay in New Sweden long and migrated to the Providence RI area. A brother, Olof Falk, came to Providence RI, married there and then went to New Sweden. Letters (in Swedish) tell of the hard life and little money.
I am currently Secretary/Treasurer of a little cemetery. I am also President of the Swedish Ancestry Research Association, known as SARA, in Massachusetts.
