Association Karlström was founded on 13-14th of July 1946 at
Norlunda, Viby, in the county of Örebro by the descendants of
Carl-Johan and Fredrika Carlström , former residents at Höga, Viby.
It counts today approximately 500 members.
Carl-Johan and his
sisters and brothers used the name written Carlström, later it was
changed into Karlström, but we don’t know why.
The first family reunion was originated by Ragnar Karlström in
Gothenburg. It took place in Viby in July 1946, a board was
established as well as the first guidelines for the association. A
register was to be made, family meetings were to be held every five
years, a letter was to be sent out to all members at Christmas every
year and greetings were to be sent out to some birthdays and so on.
Much later the board prepared a document to be sent out to celebrate
anniversaries. It was illustrated by Kerstin Lindström in Örebro.
Greetings and news from and to all members are
sent out in December every year since 1946 .
