Smedhemmet (Blacksmith Home) was Phillip Swanson’s homestead in Sweden. He lived here as a boy with his parents Carl and Emma. In this Carl and Emma link (or by using the left menus or categories to find them within the blog), you will see pictures of this home taken a very long time ago, about 100 years! K&B and I&M recently visited Sweden and one of the places on the agenda was Smedhemmet:
They, along with family from Sweden, have many more pictures which we will be going through soon and I will be posting…In the meanwhile here are some that Rune and Betty have emailed to me this week:
I will also be adding more family heritage links, so look back for those and also for more on the trip including their jaunt to Finland!
