    Hi Jennifer, this was a most interesting podcast for me! My great-grandmother Emma Johnson also came from Sweden with her family, although my knowledge of exactly when and how is still a work in progress. U.S. census data gives different dates of arrival, the women themselves were naturalized through marriage (so no naturalization papers or applications for them) and the male relatives have (so far) been difficult to track down. But it is my dream to someday go to where my ancestors came from – my Swedish ancestors, as well as my German and English ancestors!
    I am fascinated particularly by the StoryMap concept and intend to do some more research into this and how it can help tell my family’s story.
    Thanks so much for sharing your experiences!
