Norsten in Canada

Query by kstenman

Looking for relatives in Canada and US with Joakim Norsten as an ancestor in common. He had 5 sons and 2 daughters and lived parts of his life in Saskatchewan. Some I have located but others just disappeared. One grandson changed his surname to Chilman and I found his children spread over Canada and US. One daughter married Andersson and moved to Vancouver. But no further traces. Please help if you can.
The picture shows Joakim and his wife Berta Caroline.

I was born in Canada BC, I have done some research on my grandmother's side and do believe she was related somehow to Joakim. my grandmothers maiden name was Teckla C.Norsten and she did marry Anderson, my mother's name was Ena and uncles Swen,Emil,Carl and they did have a farm near or around Saskatoon Sask.
I am now a senior and have found this research very interesting. I came to the USA in 1962 but all my siblings and relatives are still in Canada.
I would be interested in hearing if we have any relatives in common.

Hi Katarina
Teckla is my grandmother, I am 76 and just for something to do started looking up my ancestory and saw your post. I do have some pictures of my grandmother and will e-mail them to you at your e-mail address, this is very interesting, from what I gather grandma had 11 children, Olga died young of scarlet fever and I have a coffin plaque of a young child( I will try to find that, I have one older sister and 4 younger half siblings (10-12 years younger) my mother Ena(not eva) married again after Mowat(my father)
I will check with my family in Canada and see if they are also interested.

Hi Katarina
This is Ruth from Arizona, I tried to send an e-mail to you at the address listed above but it came back as undeliverable.
I have a new computer and new e-mail service so I don't know if it is at this end or yours. I have some more information for you and sorry it has been so long.
Hope to hear from you.
If you can't get through please post here, I will check it daily.
