I would like to find more information on my paternal grandmother and great grandparents. I know that my grandmother was confirmed at Saron Lutheran Church and that the family lived on the 3300 block (or so) of W. Wrightwood. I'd appreciate finding out their exact address or anything pertaining to the family. My great grandfather was George Axel Peterson, born October 8, 1871 (Sweden), died January 1963 in IL. He had 3 daughters, Hazel, Astrid (my grandmother) and Evelyn. His wife was Hilma. What is your policy on accessing records at Newberry? My understanding is that this is a private library. Thank you so much for any help you can afford me.

Hello there, two years ago I obtained the Saron Church records after the buisling was converted to condos and I purchased one of the units. The builder saved the records and blueprints. Happy to see if there are any other mentions of your family in the records if you would like.
