About the name Sohlström (With swedish origin - english translation "Sunstream"): From the smith Aron Sohlström (1797-1838) there are 3 branches of people with the name Sohlström - the branches are without blood kinship.

1. Descendants of Aron Sohlström and his wife Anna-Stina Skjutare. (that is descendants of their son August Sohlström]

2. Descentans of Anders Sohlström, son before marriage to the second wife of Aron Stina Andersdotter.

3. Descendants of Johan Sohlström, son before marriage to Johanna Westerdahl, the wife of one son of Aron - Karl Gustav Sohlström.
One of the sons - Carl Johan emigrated to Worcester, USA, so there are descendants in USA. Another son - Anders Gustaf - married a granddaughter of Aron, so there it is kinship.

Aron started using the name Sohlström when full educated as smith, and was inspired by the village where he was born - Solbergshöjden in Säfsnäs in Dalarna.


Nils Eriksson born 1869 in Venjan, Dalarna emigrated together with his parents Sol Erik Eriksson and Thor Elin Olofsdotter from Venjan to Minnesota. Nils /Nels married in USA Anna Brita Åström and it seems as they after marriage used the name Sohlström.


There are an unrelated family of Sohlström in Finland and also in Uppland in Sweden. It would be nice to have a little more documented on them.
