bubbie born in Sweden of Russian parents #scandinavia


My grandmother, Rose Friedman (or Freedman), was born in Sweden in March 1869.  Her parents were Moses (Morris David) Freedman (1842 - 1926) and Bashe (Bessie) Wilkowski (1844 - 1928).  They emigrated from somewhere in Russia to Sweden before 1869 and then from Sweden to New York City in about 1881.   Rose's siblings were Frank (1872), Sarah (1875), Alfred (1878) (all born in Sweden) and then Esther (1882) and Jacob or Jack (1887) both born in New York.   Moses' parents were Jacob and Esther (nee) Solevsky (spelling ?).  I am not sure about the surname Freedman, as it was changed to that after they arrived in the US.
