Pedigree Policy: Each participant has been asked to submit his own pedigree and all effort is being made to present the pedigrees as received. As one would expect, this administrator will not alter any pedigree. However, I may add notes or comments (before, within or after a pedigree chart) in parenthesis and signed (“HJ”). Whether short or long, famous or not, each pedigree is of equal importance in trying to solve the problems of genealogical research where records have been lost or have not existed.

I should explain that my name gives no hint of my background. That is intention on my grandfather's part. He thought Alam sounded more American. Instead he made it sound Arabic. He changed his name from John Nelson Johnson. He was born in 1864 in Norrbottens County, Sweden. His father was also John Nelson Johnson. Norrbottens is above the Artic Circle, which means he may have been a Saami  (Laplander) or perhaps a Swede who moved north to work in the mines or timber.

The Genographic report is consistent with a Saami background My curiosity is if it is also consistent with a more general Swedish background. I am intrigued by your statement that my DNA results differ from others in your project. That is not definitive. but leads to a Saami answer. One complication is that my mother's parents came from Linkoping in southern Sweden.

My grandfather became the first white man on the Winnebago Indian reservation. Now I wonder if the reason he related so well to the North American native people is that he was familiar with, if not a member of, an Artic native culture. I only met my grandfather about twice when I was too young to ask about such things. Now I wish I knew more (Statement by Sterling Eugene Alam)
