I'm looking for photos of the Pålsson children. I know there is one of Stina and her parents, and one of Gösta, but are there any of Torborg and Paul, or others of the two youngest ones?
Please answer me.

I think there could have been photos of the others because lots of families took photos before they left. For example, the Panula family took a photo of their three youngest children just before they left. Maybe the Pålssons did the same, but the photos were lost somehow. It would be interesting to know if Nils Pålsson had other children, or if there were any other descendants. Maybe they might have photos.

Hi Miranda,

You said the Panulas family took a photo of the three youngest children before they left. Can I see that picture? I love to see how these little children looked who so suddenly perished this terrible disaster.
About the Palsson family, the picture says "Nils, Alma, with Stina before Nils left for Chicago." I think Stina is the oldest child/daughter, not Torborg. Why would the other children be excluded on the photo? Plus, when Nils left for Chicago, Gosta was the smallest child. This makes Stina older than Torborg. I bet there are pictures of those children somewhere, or at least were.
So, can you show me that picture with the three youngest Panula children?

Many thanks,
Laura

There wasn't a picture of all three Panula children but one photo of each. Sorry I don't know how to post a picture. Can you tell me?
I don't understand why Stina should be older than Torborg. I have thought sometimes that the girl in the photo could be Torborg, and since the child looks about one year old, Paul wasn't born yet.

Sure, Miranda. Below the space at the bottom of this page where you'd compose a new message, there's a button labeled "Insert Image/Document." Click on that button and follow the instructions on the pop-up page that will appear, and the image should appear in your message once it's posted.

I think nearly every one has a picture of Eino Panula. I you don't, I will post it here.
The photo is of Juha Panula.

In August Wennerström's biography, it says that "as the Titanic went down he met Alma Pålsson and her children. He tried to hold on to two of the children, but lost them when they came into the water."
Which children did he hold onto? And why didn't he hold on tighter???

It is very hard to hold on to a small screaming, probably kicking and squirming around child. Not to mention the water that is against you. I have located a mistake with one of the pics i sent up. The picture that was of Jaakko Panula, is not of him. It was off his cousin who has the exact same name--Jaakko Panula. My bad. I do have a few more pics of them and of the other children. I shall post them in a while.
As for the child in the pic with Alma and Nils, i believe it is Stina, and Alma is pregnant in it with her next child. She looks a few months along.

Thanks for answering, Hildur. Yes, I should've remembered that it is very hard to hold on to a child that doesn't want you to hold it.
I'm still wondering why the other Pålsson children aren't in that photo...

Nils Palsson was my great great uncle. He remarried and his second wife was Tina. I believe they had a little girl, but other than that I have no more information.

Wow, great job Hildur! That's the first picture I've ever seen of the two elder Palsson children. Is this picture from a Titanic museum somewhere?

I am assuming the photo of Alma and Gösta was taken in 1911 and the picture of Paul and Torborg was probably taken around 1912, given the ages of the children.
The photo came form an exhibition that i couldn't quite remember the name of.

The photos of the Palsson family above can also me viewed on Youtube, under the title of TITANIC GHOSTS DOCUMENTARY. pLace that in to the search engine and a 4-part video will appear. For anyone interested in the Unknown child, i'd advise you watch the video.

Make note: The Panula photos at the end if part 4, is not the family. It was a mistaken identity.
