Swedish Genealogy

Photo of Andrew Hanson (1826-1898) and his wife Bertha Persdotter(1830-1898)  They are my husband’s great-grandparents.

Andrew Hanson was known as Anders Hanson in his homeland of Sweden.  Born 24 Nov. 1826 at Lomma Parish,Malmohus Ian, Sweden he emigrated to the United States in 1881 along with his wife, Bertha (born 16 April 1820 at Katslosa, Sweden.)   Their two sons, Nels and Olaf, had emigrated the prior year.

The Hansons lived in Lily, South Dakota.  They are buried in St. Ansgar Cemetery, Day County.

My challenge: to learn more about these ancestors in 2011.
