Welcome to my first attempt to compile information about the Quanstrom family. My Aunt June has been the keeper of this information for many years and I decided to put it on the Internet for others to find, and perhaps discover our shared heritage.
My original information descended from Carl Erik, so his information started with the A-1 designation. When his ascendants were added I did not want to try to change all of the information I had already input to start with Johan, so I used AA-1 for Johan. So Carl Erik has two designations, A-1, and AA-1.I-2.II-1.III-5.A-1.
I am descended from Carl Erik Kvarnstrom/Qvarnstrom, so most of my information pertains to him. You can go through the information in two ways. The first is a single thread method. If you follow the link above you will be taken page by page down the line. These pages contain more detail, such as birth dates, marriages, deaths, and children. I have also created a page with all of the descendants and newly added ascendants, which contains only their names. This allows you to view the generations in an overview mode. Eventually I'd like to have at least one picture of each person on the site, but I'm sure that will take a very long time to achieve. I have added some pictures, one of which is of a family reunion that took place in June of 1982.
If you would like to search for a particular name, you could go to the page with all of the descendants and do a find.
I can be contacted at kkq2@REMOVETHISTEXTkkq.com if you have any additions or corrections. Please remove the upper case text within the address. I did this to avoid spam.
Also, please note that all dates are in the European format of DD/MM/YY. I started doing this because most of my original information was in this format, and as I was trying to input them into the American format I was inevitably transposing them.
To begin the single string method, please start here.
