Information in English

This part of the Wedebrand homepage was created with the intention of providing interesting
information for those in America and other nations outside Sweden who search for traces of
ancestors or other relatives connected to the Wedebrands. There will be different writers on
the subject, each presenting facts, thoughts or opinions;

Pieter and Lisbeth van den Berg, Lidköping.
Lisbeth, daughter of Elsa Wedebrand and granddaughter of Karl-Oskar Wedebrand.
Together with husband Pieter van den Berg, they have for more than two decades committed
themselves to genealogic research both in Sweden and abroad, eg in France. This work has
led them to different places and interesting stories, to people in the street as well as mayors,
all with a common interest in providing information, sometimes from almost forgotten archives.
In this work, Lisbeth and Pieter van den Berg have come across detailed information on the
families Wedebrand, Åman-Ducloux, Palmstedt, van den Berg and Dalstra.
They also have lead classes on the subject of interpreting old handwritings, a most useful tool
when searching for family roots.
