During the past few months, with the help of family, distant
cousins, aunts, uncles and recently discovered Swedish relatives, I
have been able to trace the name Bergfalk and its lineage back to
translation of Bergfalk into English is Mountain Falcon. The
family Bergfalk has no coat of arms and probably never did.
The authors of this site are descendants of the
Bergfalk legacy. During the late 1800s, several Bergfalks
immigrated to America, all being descendants of Lisa Jonsdotter
(1831-1862) and Carl Johan Bergfalk (1812).
As a result, the authors decided to prepare
this site with Lisa Jonsdotter and her husband, Carl Johan Bergfalk
as the fulcrum point relative to the specific links. The first
link, Pre-Bergfalk, traces the ancestry of Lisa and Carl Johan. The
site also includes the legacy prior to the actual name Bergfalk
The link Immigration will begin to trace the
Bergfalks who remained in Sweden to those who came to America.
Research indicates that ten (10) Bergfalks originally came to the
United States of America; five (5) during the late 1880s and five
(5) during the early 1900s. Sub-links under Immigration will
address the above referenced groups.
Other links will allow the website visitor to
browse information on the Bergfalk family, contact us with
information, comments or clarifications, guest book to sign in and
yet to be developed a community information board to communicate
If anyone has any old photos of Bergfalks
please contact us. I personally want to thank all that have helped
gathering information, sharing stories and restoring friendships and
to share a favorite quote of mine, there are no strangers, only
friends who havent met. Thank you for coming to our site and please enjoy.
