Thank you to Susan and Johanna both who have found my long lost great Aunt's family.  I have contacted people in this tree and elsewhere and I'm waiting for a response.  AND...the family tree you showed me had no  mention of our great grandparents and great great, all of whom I  have found or have photos of.  I hope they will be happy!  I hadn't looked at my files for so long I mixed up the father and the son and the daughter with the granddaughter.  CAVEAT.....check back on old records and do not rely on memory.  AND...I found two other Sved brothers.  Why weren't they on my Great Uncle's handwritten list of his siblings????  They were much older but still....Same mother, same town.  The mysteries always continue.  When there are inter-family disconnects collecting our families becomes a challenge.

You wondered why they weren't on a written list of siblings.  My grandfather kept a diary starting in 1902.  He wrote dates of marriages of his siblings, and births in the family.  He never mentioned a sister.  No one in the family ever spoke of this sister.

When I saw the sister, Mary, on the 1900 census I thought it might be an error.  I asked my uncle and he said, of yes, Aunt Mary was so nice and she took care of us after our mom passed away.

So, there's no explaining why some info can be left out!

Best regards,
