Very informative, I've been looking for a passenger list. Was thrilled to see yours, first, second and third class, plus a crew list. I would like to research more, especially finding three passengers with my maiden name. I know my grandparents came through England from Sweden via ship also. I'd like to get more info about these three. Their names are Mrs. Hjaalmar Sandstrom (Agnes Charlotta Bengtsson), Miss Beatrice Irene Sandstrom, and Mis Marguerite Rut Sandstrom. All three survived. Incredible. Thanks again.

This is my first visit it this site. I didn't expect a biographpy on everyone. I am a descendent of Mrs. Hjalmar Sandstrom and her two daughters who were 3rd class passengers and survived by boarding lifeboat 13. My grandfather was a brother to her husband. I had heard stories as a child about the Titanic and my relatives but didn't pay much attention until the movie came out and I found out the stories I heard were true by researching on the internet. If any of my Swedish relatives out there reads this, I would love to hear from them. Sandra Callaway grandaughter of Anton George Sandstrom, brother of Hjalmar Sandstrom.

Hi, Does anyone know more about this family? They seem interesting. Do any pictures exist of them around Titanic time?

Thank You.

I have a picture of their house in San Francisco. Some guy reported on this board that he had a copy of an interview with Mrs. Sandstrom. I inquired about it, but never heard any more.

I have the obituary about Beatrice Sandstrom from a Swedish newspaper.
Andrew and Jan and others contact me on e mail if you want more about Mrs Sandstrom. According to the obituary, the whole family Sandstrom moved back to Sweden in 1912. She lived in Motala at the time of her death.

I'm new at this--please be patient with me. I am a descendant of the Sandstroms and I was surprised to see so many people interested in them. Beatrice and Marguerite Sandstrom were my mother's first cousins. Their father (Hjalmar Sandstrom was a brother to my grandfather, George Anton Sandstrom (who was born in Sweden as Anton George Sandstrom.) I grew up hearing stories of my Swedish relatives and the Titanic but was to young to appreciate the history. My mother was born after the Titanic sank and never knew her cousins. Would love to connect by e-mail with any living Swedish relatives out there.

Sandy:
If you read Swedish, you will have to find a copy of Claes-Goran Wetterholm's book, "Titanic". He is the gentleman pictured above with Beatrice, and he used to travel often with her to various Titanic exhibits. There were a few Sandstroms living in San Francisco around 1910-1912, but I'm not sure if they were also related to your uncle Hjalmar. I'm in San Francisco this week, and will contact you when I get home this weekend.

Thank you, Mike, for the information. I don't speak or read Swedish. Grandma certainly spoke enough of it when I was a child. I'd appreciate any information you can give me.
