Thanks for getting it right, Don. When I wrote the original mail, I did not
have the original email from Sweden telling me about this. I was also
shocked to when I first got the information on my family, to find that my
great grandfather sister's children had been auctioned. Things were as Don
better explained. Back in the 1800's, there were many poor people, thus the
exodus to the US and other countries. Many times the relatives still living
in Sweden just didn't have the financial ability to take in more children, as
they had their own to care for, plus probably parents. It was the best thing
for the child, I suppose.
