Here's something we just found out:
Swedish: patronymic from the personal name Anders, a vernacular form of Andreas.

We thought that Dad had ancestors in a nordic country, but we didn't realise they were so close. We recently discovered that Dad's Great-grandmother - born Linnéa Andersson - had a brother in Sweden - and even more exciting, some of her decendants are still alive.

This got me thinking - alot of people have relatives they never even knew about. People move around alot today. Who'd ever of thought that an originally Swedish family would have decendants in England who married a Chinese woman? Well, it happened, and here I am as proof!!
