My name is Annika and I'm from Sweden. My fathers aunt had contact with her mothers cousin Oscar Carlson when he moved to US. Oscar married a woman called Maude, but I don't know when she was born or where. I only know that they lived in Rockford, Illinois and the number 61108 (I guess it's the code for the town or something, I'm not sure). I would be super happy if you could give me some information about them.
61108 sounds like a zip code (city) Maybe the city has a forum. I found my uncle's family by posting on a forum of the city and actually got a reply but not till 2 years later and just now discovered it. I left my email address but no one wrote even though they acknowledged the post. I took that information and checked out to see if they were on Face Book and was able to direectly message them. Some response but not like I would have wanted. Should you post somewhere log the places you leave mesages on and periodically check them for any activiity. Since mine was over several years and many sites on the internet eventually I lost track of where I had been. I found the post by Google-ing and came across one of my posts. I knew my uncle had passed away but I was still hoping to make contact with the family with no information at all exvept his name.....and stamped on the back of his picture we recieved a mention of a town. Look carefully for all or any clues...written or even caught in the photo.
Thank you so much for the information. I think I can give some more information now because I actually found Oscar and his family! At least in 1940! He and his wife Maude had at least 4 children, their names were Margaret (16 years), Doris (15 years), Raymond (13 years) and the youngest Marilyn (8 years), so that means that they are/would be in there 80's and 90's now. If anyone knows anything about them I would be so happy to know! Please contact me!
