BTW i was a adoptee and have found both of my birth parents, 3 half siblings and a daughter.
That's cool. Lots of Scandinavian emigrated to the US. Norway had 800.000 people emigrating to the US. Highest in the world relative to the population.

Is great to hear that you git in touch with your ancestors. kroppa in Sweden is about a 4 hours drive from me.

Unfortunately I don't have much knowledge of Swedish ancestry, even if I did some research on my wife's Swedish ancestors

came from Schleswig-Holstein, between Hamburg & Lubeck
to Galveston in 1853. after 20 years in the Danish merchant marine
when it was still Denmark. before the 1865 war.
He married a 27yr.old German girl (spinster ;) from Mecklenburg
he met in Galveston
they eventually settle in Lynn, Missouri south of the river.
the next generation moved back to Texas.

my maternal family- the Burlesons, Rogers, Brownes are Scots-Irsh & English
and immigrated to the colonies in the 1750s
they immigrated from Tennessee to Texas in 1831
when it was still Mexico. before the Texas Revolution
Very interesting story about Peter Krohn. He seems to be the real stuff. Thanks for sharing.

I too have ancestors from Mecklenburg - Vorpommeren.

Strange how much long distance traveling it was in rge old days too.
