Hurrah! A book called 'Hem' (Home) by Monika Lidman! I am not one to toot my horn often, but I just finished an extensive family history project. It took two and one-half years and the feeling, upon completion, is more satisfying and exhilarating than I ever imagined. I am proud to have made something to leave behind - stories of some very brave Swedes. Cousins and interested friends can go here to order copies. The smashing cover was designed by John Kieltyka.
