Other information:Eric was vey handy, built two summerhouses, was interested in wood carving and repaired almost everything. He was also interested in music and played the banjo he bought in USA. Another interest was photograp, collecting stamps and coins. He never lost his interest for his roots and when Warren Anderson (122) visited Sweden 1968, they travelled together down to Öland to meet the other relatives there. This was also the start for him to map all the relatives in a tree diagram and assign them a number, the system we use today.
