Carefully Registered

The Canadian army has registered Ivar Eskil as ‘son of Lars John Alfred and Nanny Elina Lindstrom of Donalda, Alberta, Canada. Brother of Ranger (Ragnar), Uno, Jerald (Gerhard?), Leonard, Enga (Inga) and Thora.’

The siblings left in Sweden are not named and some names does not match the names specified as their first names in the book about Stensele Municipality where the family originally comes from.

Unfortunately I don’t have a photo of Ivar Eskil, just one of the family in Canada.


To the left is Ivar Eskils parents, John and Nanny. The boy to the very right is his brother Leonard who died in a strange place called Uranium City in 1977. The picture below is from the book Donalda Root’s and Branches. A kind librarian in Donalda has photocopied it for me.
