In the next book from what you have they are in Roknäs. Their first two children died in infancy: Gördis Marianne Granström (18 Dec 1922 - 4 April 1923) and Erik Tave (unusual name, have to check) Granström (7 July 1924 - 2 Nov 1924). Then there is Hjördis Granström, born 24 Nov 1925.

And there is Thord Granström, born 20 July 1929. Hjördis (or Gördis) and Thord are both alive, living with their parents, in 1941 when the last published household record ends. A bit too young to marry at that time.

Neither of them is still alive in Sweden today, if I check https://www.birthday.se/
If there are still living descendants, I think one should not discuss it in an open forum. There are databses where they could be found, though. Although I don't have easy access to those - some of the other Swedes may have.
Neither Tord nor Gördis are in the Sverige Dobok 1947-2006. Tord is in the 1970 & 1980 folkräkning with wife and children, but not Gördis. Tord's widow is alive.

Assumption #1: Tord died after 2006.

Assumption #2: Gördis died before 1947 or left Sweden before 1970.
Erik found the newspaper announcement fro Tord, who died in January this year.

Did you look for Gördis also as Hjördis?
I was looking for a Granström...

Hjördis is in the 1970 & 1980 folkräkning married to Johan Alvar Jonsson (1918-09-19). Neither are on ratsit, presumably died after 2006.

One child.
Thanks for all your help Gerry and Eva!

I believe I did find some living descendents of Tord Granstrom living in Pitea today.  However we should not discuss them on the G2G forum. ;)

Thanks again for your help, connecting Oregon trees back to Swedish roots!
