Hi Beth,
thank you again very much.

Well, I can see that the Frank Bjork who died in 1975 is the right man. He is born the right day, and I know that he died in 1975, so I've been told. I also suspect that he didn't have any children since my grandfather inherited a sum of money for him in the mid-seventies. His swedish name was Frans Magni Björk.

I also suspect the Augusta Carlson married to Robert Carlson (two children; Henry and Ludwig)in Minnesota is his sister. Frank Bjork lived in the same household as her according to the 1920 census. In Franks records for the WW II draft an Augusta Carlson in Minnesota is next of kin as we say in Sweden.

And I am quite positive that the Helena you found for me is the right one. Yesterday, after I got your message that she had lived in Fuglie, I checked this up and I found information in the parish book that she emigrated at the "right time".

I have found information from the 1940 census that Augustas son, Henry, was a truckdriver, lived at 2729 Chigago Avenue in Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota. He was married to Evelyn and they had a daughter; Jennie, 1 year old.

Can you give me any tips of how I shall move on if I want more information about my relatives?

Thank you very much for all your help so far.

/ Mats
