1 Newlin, Ronald J Tales of a New-Line and Related Stories
This book is inscribed by the author, and has a separate slip of paper enclosed with a note to an individual. This interesting book is based on a family geneology, put together primarily by three of the family living in the United States. It starts with several immigrant families moved from a small parish in Sweden and finally found themselves in Michigan. The move was caused by severe problems in Sweden involving drought, famine, and impending poverty. Most of the families stayed together in the general area of Wallace, which they named Bethel. One of Ronald Newlin's family was, without his knowledge, just completing a geneological chart. When they finally met after talking for several months, Ronald was thrilled that he had found family. She knew quite a bit about different members and Ronald, with his wife, went to Sweden more than once to meet his relatives. The first part of this book appears to be about Sweden in the late 19th century, and into the next century. The second part of the book contains stories related to the people in the book, the first being Per's Decision to leave Sweden. There are 18 pages of black & white photographs. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 189 pages; Signed by Author
