Our beloved brother Helge Olgard Emanuel Persson had biological14 sibblings in his family when growing up in Sweden. My brother Helge Olgars Emanuel Perssons ( Helge O. Persson from 224 Hansen Av, Trenton N.J 08610, USA) american family is trying to ignore us. It is a shame that his daughter and grandson is so hateful towards Helge O Perssons Swedish family.!
Love you Always says sister Eva

The information about Helge Olgard Emanuel Persson's nickname has been removed the 10th time since August 2018. What is the point removing correct iunfromation about nicknames? Just americans, as far as we know, from the U.S would delete infromation or change information


Once again, A site like Ancientfaces that Removes and delete comments, Delete critics about the site and does not feel like serious site. Its seems like things Sovietunion, Hitler and Stalin would have done- delete information that they didn't like
