My name is Maria and I´m from Sweden so excuse me for my bad english.
I´m looking for children or grandchildren of Vitalis Olson born 1878-06-03 in Huggenäs Sweden, and Selma C Olson born 1889-01-28, dead 1981-02.
I now that they had 2 girls Rut M Olson and Signe E Olson.
Vitalis and Selma came to America in 1911. I think they lived in this adress at first -607 Wabash Avenue, Menominee in the 1920´s)and then later they lived at 1102 Stephenson Avenue, Menominee.(He worked att at saw mill in the 30´s.
His daughter Rut went 4 years in high school.Worked as a maid in a private home in the 1930´s.
Signe also went 4 years in high school.
I think Vitalis died sometimes under the 1940`s. Because I know that Selma was a widow 1949.
I dont know if the daughters has married or not.But I hope that they both have familys that still is alive so I can get in touch.
Vitalis also had three brothers that emigrated to America that I would like to know more about and if they have any relatives left that I can get in touch with.
