Is my great-grandfather the same Karl Borg?

+5 votes

Marcus, I am the great-granddaughter of Karl Einar Borg. Karl was the son of Johan Albert Andersson Borg (unless my translator meant August instead of Albert.) Johan was born September 10, 1877 in Glava Finnsforrest and passed May 10, 1975 in Klassbol [Arvika Municipality, Varmland County.] Karl was born April 22, 1903 and immigrated to Chicago, IL in 1923. Do you think these are the same Karl and Johan Borg? If so, it is nice to finally find my family.

Hi Emily, it seems rather unlikely.

There is not a lot of location info in the Karl Borg branch, but what there is indicates they lived in Östergötland, not in Värmland. Borg is not an uncommon name.

Marcus has not been active since November 2016, when he responded to a merge request. He seems mostly to have been active in 2014.
