Does anyone have data on the ancestors of Elmer Alexander Forsberg, b. 1883 in Yxpila, Karleby, son of Adolf Alexander Forsberg and Signe Katharine Bonde. The family came to Chicago 1891. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and remained there as an instructor and lecturer for 40 years. He was Consul of Finland for the Midwest 1924-1940. He was also closely associated with Jean Sibelius, Axel Gallen-Kallela, Pekka Halonen, Albert Edelfelt and Eliel Saarinen. I have more data about him, but would like to find something about his parents, etc.

Thanks,

June
