Swedish in Cambridge?
I read about Swedish Baptists from Orsa in Dalarna in Sweden, who moved to the USA in the 1860's and settled down in Cambridge. I am interested in having further information about this group of emigrants. Are there any information sources about this group?
If anyone can help, please email me:
