Hansen William Born Hammarstrand Sweden 1849

Recommended Posts

Hello

My Great Grandfather William Hansen was Norwegian however stated he was born in Hammarstrand Sweden around 1849 - but our DNA results show 16% Norwegian and only 2% Swedish.  William travelled to England, India, Singapore, Australia and finally settled in Central Otago in New Zealand and became a citizen of New Zealand in 1889.  I am looking for any information about Williams parents, any siblings that may have remained in Norway/Sweden.  I would be so very grateful for any information to include on our ancestry, we are very proud of our Scandinavian ties and the courage of our pioneering Great Grandfather.

Thank you for reading my request
