My father was the WMRA champion in 1938 and was a good friend of your uncle, Swede Lindskog. My grandparents owned the car that my dad drove. They and their daughter (my mother) kept a scrapbook of those racing years, which I now have. I have news clippings and personal photos of your uncle, plus a couple of letters that he wrote to my dad -- one when he was living in Los Angeles and one from New Zealand. Hope to hear from you!
Thank you for your comment... My mom has a lot of stuff from my uncle, that i hope to go through soon, and eventually publish online - especially from the New Zealand trip. I'd love to find out more about the letters and pictures you have of my uncle. Let me know at peterson dot tx at gmail dot com - Thanks!
If Swede Lindskog´s parents are Josef and Amanda, maiden name Roos, I have information about his Swedish ancestors. I found out that his middle name was Theodore. That information told me he must have been a cousin of my mother.Vilhelm Persson, Sandviken, Sweden
Vilhelm,Yep, that's him... please send me an email (to the email on my profile) so we can share family info, I'm sure my Mom (Einar's little sister Linnea) would love to hear about the info you have...
