  1. I am looking forward to this tour on Wed, Apr 15 from 11-4. My great grandparents came over from Sweden each at different times and met in RI somehow. They married on 7 Sept 1901 in Providence RI and had six children. My great grandmother died a month after the birth of the last child. Through Facebook I have connected the lines of this couple that I wish I had grown up knowing - I want to learn more about this family and times, their life, their journeys here, and more. What were the conditions that led them here from Sweden? So many questions as I pull my material together to write our story - my families story on this line.
