Welcome to my website!

My name is Solbritt Furberg (maiden name Edlund), born in the city of Örnsköldsvik and living here most of my life, except for periods of studies (living in Sundsvall and Umeå). With parents from countryside I also have a good connection to countryside life. Through my work I have time to time lived in other parts of Sweden.

On this website I want to share to others my genealogy research and stories I heard as a child as well as new stories that emerged during my research. Though the work I have encountered poignant human fates, even outside the family. In addition to traditional genealogy sources, photographs, newspaper articles, postcards and letters have been important clues in the research. My genealogical research created a strong interest in writing, which resulted in two historical novels.

My website is under construction. Not every page are translated, yet. Do not hesitate informing me about misunderstandings, inaccuracies.
