släktföreningens möte på
CASTLE of TJOLÖHOLM 1991
relatives in Sweden met at the Castle of Tjolöholm a few
miles south of Gothenburg on the 1st of June 1991. We
were around 130 persons and after a short gathering
outdoors, we had a magnificent lunch in a large coach
house, that has been turned into a restaurant.
lunch we could listen to two very interesting speeches.
(2:1:3:1:4) told us in a very picturersque and
brilliant way about our family history.
(You can read about that under history).
He had also been informed, that
there was a man in Gothenburg, who had been asked by the town
to make a town history based on official document such as
likens to import likens to trade, tax income etc. From this
work he had picked out what concerned our family. It was a
very exciting story on how the two first brother’s, that came
here from Scotland, financial status had gone up and down and
we also learned a lot about Gothenburg, all told in a nice and
easy to understandable way.
After the lunch we went up throw
the castle park to the castle, where we got a guided tour. The
castle has many interesting details. You can read about them
at the castles own site at
