Comments

Although the text is in Swedish, the 100's of photos, the organization by community, and the 1000's of names make this 2 volume set more than a very valuable rare Texas book; This book is an important resource for those interested in the settlement of early Texas by immigrants from Sweden. Swedes comprise one of the largest of European ethnicities in Texas. Swedish names abound throughout the state both in family and place names. Virtually every walk of life was filled by people of Swedish origins and they have been among the most successfully prosperous groups from the earliest days of their arrival. it is a useful tool for those wishing to trace the family history of their Swedish/Texan forebears. The first volume begins with a general history of Texas and the role of Swedes in forming the new nation/state. It goes on to describe the general business, agricultural, and social aspects of Texas. It is significant that foremost among the chapters are those about educational and religious practices. The communities covered in Volume 1 are: Austin, Palm Valley (Eastern Round Rock), New Sweden, Brushy (old Round Rock), Georgetown, Taylor, and Hutto. Volume 2 continues with coverage of the communities of: Decker, Ericsdale, Jonah, Elroy, Kenedy, Manor, E. Sweden, W. Sweden, Brady, Melvin, Ft.Worth, El Campo, Dallas, Waco, Lund, Type, Kimbro, Manda, Ganado, Crosby, Elgin, Louise, Galveston, Olivia, Temple, Swedonia, Bishop, Swensondale, Lyford, San Antonio, Houston. The final pages of this massive work are dedicated to showing the "Service Flags" of various communities of Swedes who served in the just-ended WWI. These include the rank, company, and location and years of service.
