Title: Great-grandfather
Post by: Yvonne Grunson on February 25, 2006, 07:58:55 AM
My Great-Grandfather. AUGUST BERGMAN was born on in Gotenburg on 11 Jan 1864 son of Johnathan and Sofia Bergman (this is according to the information given on his application for British citzenship). On his marriage certificate 3 May 1890 (in the UK) his father's  name is spelled as JOHN, a sawyer. From what I have been told is that he was born in Sweden but brought up in Norway.

August died on 15 August 1926 in South Shields, England

I have been unable to trace his birth or the marriage of his parents on the websites that is known to me.

Any information would be gratefully received or advise me of the websites that I can search. 

Many Thanks in advance

Chris, you can email Yvonne directly if you click on the letter symbol under her name (on the left side of the page).  Similarly, Yvonne can email you directly.

If you haven't already done so, I'd recommend posting your family tree on our pedigree forum.  There are already a lot of pedigrees posted there, and you may find a researcher who shares some common ancestry (or a researcher may find you).

All the pedigree are sorted and organized onto the official family website at:

Also, here is a direct link if you want to go ahead and order a DNA test:

And, if you want more information, there is a lot at the website.  I recommend starting at our Frequently Asked Questions page:
