Palmquist Family Genealogy Forum
I am interested in information on and the ancestors and descendents of my great-grandfather, Johannes Largus Teodor PALMQUIST (or PALMQVIST), born 02 April 1863 presumably in Sweden. Johannes was a police constable. He married Aqvilina Matilda Elizabet LINDQVIST (b. 23 July 1864), and they had a son, Bernhard Teodor Methias PALMQUIST (b. 13 May 1892; d. 09 Feb 1959). These dates come from Bernhard's Swedish birth certificate.
Bernhard, also known as "Big Ben", emmigrated to Montreal, Canada, where he worked as a electrical power engineer. He and his wife Amy CHALLINOR had four children, including my mother Ruby Warriner PALMQUIST. Her brothers and sister are Rolph, Sven and Thelma.
Any information or suggestions for researching in Sweden would be appreciated.
