Click on the link above to see the page with my maternal grandfathers pedigree chart. Note! The page is opened in a new window.

The ancestors on my maternal grandfather, Sigge, are primarily from Arvidsjaur and Arjeplog parishes, where they were settlers, but originally they came from the villages in the coastal area around Skellefteå. I also have a few ancestors in Burträsk and Sorsele.

Unfortunately, my grandfather Sigge died in cancer when I was only 3 month old and I have never met him and therefor I have no memories of him.

Sigges father died when Sigge was only 1 1/2 year old and according to my grandmother Naima, he grew ut as a fosterchild in a family in Långträsk, where his fostermother was nice towards him, but his fosterfather wasn’t. Sigge started working directly after he finished school, at the age of 14.
