    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. Glenna Oleson Brodhead, Wisconsin

    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... Read full post

    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... Read full post

    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.

  14. Sandy Callaway said:

    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.

  15. Mike Herbold said:

    Sandy: Please contact me direct, and I will send what I have.

    Hallo, Jesseca. In later life Beatrice Sandstrom was never married, and earned her living running a small bakery. I assume you've looked at her biography page here on this website. If not, it's here:

    Hey you guys this is going to sound crazy but I full reason to believe I am the reincarnation of Beatrice. I dont know if you all believe in reincarnation, but I do and had a past life dream. Here's my story. My reincarnation dream yes I was a titanic survivor when I was a child in my past life. I was 21 years old when I had my very first reincarnation dream. I always wished I could have an amazing experience such as reincarnation dreams I asked and asked, until one night when I was least expecting it boom! you want it here it is Haha. I fell into the dream much like an Out of body... Read full post

    Moderator's caution: Please tread lightly here. Discussions of reincarnation have, albeit in the distant past, become overly heated. Be respectful of the beliefs of others, even (especially?) if you don't share them. Thanks.
