    I've been researching my family lineage over the past year. Through my research I have met and had correspondence with several distant realtives I had no prior knowledge of even their existence. I have received a wealth of information, stories and photographs from some of them. The man pictured above takes the cake. He is my third cousin 2x removed. His great grandfather Anders Bloom was the brother of my great great great grandmother Helena Bloom. Ander's father in law was Gustaf Collin. That is who this bible belonged to. Long story huh? Gustaf lived from 1806-1889. It is possible that this bible belonged to his ancestors, I personally have not seen it yet. There is a family reunion this summer, I am hoping he brings it!
