Alice, 1947


Alice on her confirmation.

AliceMy mother, Alice Maria, born Dahlstedt – when she was a teenager, to the right.
January 8th, 1909 – January 26th, 1964. My mother was never employed anywhere and had no occupation. She was a house-wife all her grown-up life from the day she married my father. Before that she lived at home with her parents (my grandparents) which I never knew. Grandmother on mothers side died before I was born, grandfather when I was around 2. Alice had 2 sisters and 2 brothers. None of them live today. Mother was the youngest.

I'n January 2005, I got a family tree for my mother's ancestors from a Swedish visitor to my website who has been researching the Dahlstedt family line. I will publish this here when I get the time. I will then also publish some more photos of my mothers siblings and family.
