I do not know if this is the same one but she was married to Nils Olsson Kullberg and had 8 children all born in Solvesborg, Sweden.

1) Hilda Bernardina, born 1882
2) Anna, born 1884
3) Elvira Afrida, born 1887
4) Nils Sigurd, born 1891 - my grandfather
5) Ester Otilla, born 1893
6) Fridolf John, born 1895
7) Olga Alexandra, born 1896
8) Gerda Elizabeth, born 1897

Gerda Kullberg lived in Solvesborg all of her life, Hilda, Anna & Ester all moved to California, USA, Elvira lived in Winnipeg Canada and Nils SIGURD lived in Brandon Canada.

Unfortunately I do not know if it is the same one. Nils Olsson Kullberg was a Sea Captain of the Swedish Merchant Navy. They lived in Solvesborg Sweden but I do not know here DOB nor her DOD.

Looking for Relatives?
