Please know that this blog is very much a work in progress. I will be adding information to each blog post as I have time and as new information or photos are, please, come back often to see if anything new for your particular ancestor has been updated. I welcome your participation in fleshing out each post. There are some descendants about whom I have a great deal of information and some about whom I know very little.

I have served as the Secretary/Archivist for the Forsgren Family Association for many years and have acquired a lot of material. It is my desire to make it all available through this blog so that all may benefit. But I am only one person and there are thousands of Peter A descendants. Please contact me and help by notifying me of errors or clarifications or to submit information and photos you might have.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on your point of view, all the descendants of Peter Adolph Forsgren have been very the task of uploading all the photos, data and documents for this branch of the Forsgren siblings will be a very time-consuming process.... so...

Thank you so much for your patience!! ENJOY!!!

AMAZING DISCOVERY !! The Forsgren Pram

In the evening of March 11, 2012 I checked my email messages on my I-phone before going to bed for the night and was astounded to see this picture.    It was sent to me by Charlotta Cederlof, the journalist/reporter in Gavle, Sweden with whom I have maintained an on-going, though infrequent, connection ever since she did an article on John Erik Forsgren and the monument placed in the park in front of the Forsgren home in Sweden. 

Her comment was, "They say this is the Forsgren pram.  I have decided to believe it is.  Someone has painted the sun hood with gold paint but it is still beautiful."

I just can't stop looking at it!    Did Peter or Erika or John use this as babies?    Could it have been used by Peter's son Pehr Johan, born to him through Britta Cathrina Wallstrom?    Oh, if only it could talk!

Charlotta is investigating who had the pram and sold it back to the current owner of the Antiquity shop which is housed in the old Forsgren home in Gavle.
