Are there by any chance any of Arthur Selander's relatives on this board? Or any relationships of Karl Fredrick Karlsson Selander? I have Lydia, Karl Johansson, and Selma Johanna.. But was wonering if someone "alive" out here who might be any relation? Arthur lived in Portland I believe and was a celebrated artist...

Kay and Hasse,

All those children were born to Karl Johansson Silakka-Silander-Selander, 1854-1921 and Johanna Charlotta Karlsdotter Nyman, 1857-1924.
Selma married Johan Gran/Grant
Karl (Charles) married Alzora Wilson
Arthur married Nettie Beyers
George married Sigrid Granfors
Edith married Orville Wilson
Elna married Milo Richardson
Seth married Dorothy Willard
Hilder married Joseph Skinner

A few years ago I worked with Jacqueline Allen on this data. I don't have her address any longer, but do have one for one of her relatives - who is descended from Selma. I'll send Kay her address privately.

Does anyone have any information on Karl and Johanna's parents? I can't seem to find any information about them (Karl and Johanna) before they came to the USA, such as their parents names, birthplaces, and, well anything really.

Brian Skinner
Grandson of Hildur Ruth Olivia Selander

I have the ancestors of Hildur's mother and father. I'll attach an ahnentafel with the data I have. Perhaps someone else can fill in the missing data.

WOW! Thanks so much for the Selander ahnentafel. That's way more than I expected to get. I'll be busy for awhile now researching these names some more!

Did you know that Hildur had 7 siblings in the US. Do you know Jacqueline Allen? She's the great grandaughter of Selma Selander, married to John Gran/Grant, and has data about the entire family.
