Stockholm Sweden City Facts

My great grandfather Axel Stanislaus Larson left Stockholm in 1885 to travel to the United States. He was a tailor. I have visited Stockholm three or four times. Each time I visit, I look at the facial characteristics and mannerisms of the people who live there. In doing so I can see my Grand parents. There are certain facial characteristics which are of a national nature and define the national look. Visit the country of origin for your ancestors and check this out for yourself.
