Great Great Grandfather?

A relative from Sweden found me the other day.  I'm not hard to find.  I wasn't hiding, and a Google search locates scads of Gisselquists - all related in some way.

The email from Sweden got me poking around online and I unearthed this photo on Ancestry.com - I suspect it's my Great Great Grandfather Per Jonsson Gisselquist - who emigrated from Sweden in the early 19th century.


Sorry for the small photo.  Attempts to enlarge don't do much to enhance the appearance of Per Jonsson.

Wait - this gets better - now I've unearthed my Great-Grandfather Ole Gisselquist.  I love the straw boater.



I may need to purchase a subscription to Ancestry.com.
