While at Swenson today, I heard that the genealogist's dad was going to a meeting of the Andover Historical Society and there was going to be something about the orphan's home that was located near the town.
I piped up and said wouldn't it be fun to find the 1920 census images for that place? I managed to find the pages and so he's ready for the meeting. I am writing because I discovered 3 Michigan born kids named Fostrom - Alice age 13, Neva age 11, and Carl age 10. They are listed as having a Finnish born father who spoke Finnish and a Swedish born mother who spoke Swedish.

BIG EDIT: I just looked at the fotocopy and to my horror I discovered the surname is FOSTROM, not FORSTROM!

I am posting this to draw attention to my spelling error with this surname.

So if you are looking for some Fostrom kids, this could be useful.

Sorry about the error - the name was clearly written so I just inserted an /r/ where it didn't belong.

Hi!
I Looked up in the Finnish name register (https://192.49.222.187/nimipalvelu/default.asp?L=3). There has not been any Fostrom (or Foström) name registered in Finland! Probably it should be Forström (?).

My Grandmothers first mans name was Frans Öström (FOstrom ...). The Fostrom kids you mention, should not , relate to him but he was three times to Amerika. Her is his emigration information:

Here is the image for ppl to check out.
In the column for birth of the person, Alice Fostrom is listed as Michigan with the other two kids with a line through the space which somehow suggested "ditto" to me and then in the same spaces for birthstate of Neva and Carl, we see in lighter script "Ill" and further over we see in lang of father, for Alice is is Finnish and for the other two kids it is "LC" and the line across the space. For mother she is Swedish and a similar setup. Now, if Neva and Carl were born in Illinois, that is another error for these eyes and another clue for somebody looking for them.
