    This article is written by Axel Hansson on april 15 1967 . He belonged to the same church as the family Brogren, and as such he was a friend of the family and participated as such in the gathering. He recalls how Ernest captured the audience with his depicition of the unsinkable ship that would transfer them across the Atlantic Ocean. How every passenger now could travel with dignity (earlier forms of travel was not very pleasant for third class passengers). Many in the audience felt envy, to travel with the largest and most modern ship in the world. Yet they were of course happy for their... Read full post

    A postcard sent by Anna Nysten to congratulate her mother on her birthday in 1912. She is aware it will arrive late, knowing that it takes time for letter to arrive. ”But better late than never”, perhaps nodding to her own experiences… She expresses much gratitude over her fortune to endure the recent hardships.

    In this article, ”Titanicpassagerarna från Horn” was published in Östgöta Correnspondenten on May 13 1972, also written by Axel Hansson. In this article he estimates around 60 participants during the day. You might also note how mr Danbom is named Ernst. Ernest is considered an older form, and I believe it was spelled different even during contemporary times. On formal occasions, Ernest is probably how he spelled it out, though in everyday life and our time, Ernst is the name mostly used. Even though spring was far away, the weather was kind and allowed the company to commemorate with... Read full post

    Thank you for providing all of this great information! I'll add my own opinions about some of what you have posted. -I don't think that photo is of the Andersson children. To me, there is no resemblance whatsoever. -About Kättestorp farm: I don't have an exact year Anders got the farm, but from a website I've found online it says "Alfrida married Anders Johansson on 25 June 1898 and they settled in Kättestorp. Anders became the owner of his father-in-law's third of the farm." So it appears it was shortly after they got married. Also this says that he only... Read full post

    I do not believe this photo is the Andersson children. Apart from not looking very much like them; the little boy is clearly older than the toddler girl which is supposed... Read full post

    Hi! I am in agreement that it's not them. Unfortunately this photo is being circulated at the family online and offline so I posted it to raise discussion. Thanks for sharing!

    It's all written in Swedish, and since I can't read that I used google translate to translate it into English. Perhaps reading it in Swedish can tell you the proper terminology. Sometimes that gets lost in translation. The author didn't provide any citations for the info, so I'm not sure where they got it from. But this is the most detailed info I've been... Read full post

    I examined the picture and a few things caught my attention. Now I am not an expert, but I still thought it would be interesting to share them with you: I'm going to... Read full post
