My mother’s paternal and maternal grandparents all emigrated from Sweden to the United States in the late 1800′s. The Molines went to Minnesota, and the Nordgrens (or Larsons if they were listed under their original name) were in Iowa for a short time.
With the help of a Great Uncle who was a member of the LDS church, our Nordgren family has been traced back to their roots in Halland to the villages of Landa and Veddige. The Moline family were from Örebro. A friend of mine who also does Swedish research sent me the link below. If any of you have success using this link, please let me know!
