Welcome to the Helling family

Sad ending for us in February when Tomas Helling died.

Our son Tomas Helling died on February 21 when he visited Jamaica. His wife Alma and many of our children and grandchildren came to us in Trollhättan on February 27 and 28 for planning of his burial.
On April 2 we will have a ceremony for him in a chapel in Trollhättan, and afterwards a dinner for guests.
Notice that this will be the last updating of our homepage. There will soon be a new entry to this homepage, but if you have come so far the rest will be as before.

The new structure of our homepage

Notice that we have a new structure for our homepage from 2019. Even the main headlines have somewhat been changed. However we had problems with our homepage during January and February 2020. But problems are now fixed and  you could open and read this.

Addition made in December 2020. The reason for this was a letter with a Mystery and a which for an possible explaination from Sweden.

Jan Helling`s last book in English.

Jan´s last book in Swedish was written 2017. But he decided to translate this book about Christina into English during the spring of 2018. All ten chapters of "My sister Christina" are included under the tab CHRISTINA. Even if this is a Book rather than a Short Story, you will find a link to the book about CHRISTINA under tab Short Story. Some of us, like myself, have difficulties to read a book on a computer screen. But unfortunatly no printed book in English  has been published. Please, tell us if you have problems reading this book from the screen.

Sonja is writing a book about her parents love story. 

This manuscript is handed over to Anna-Lena, her son Albin and our son Tomas for review and editing. This book will be written in Swedish.

Our Family register.

We have a complete family register in our home computer. But this register is not published on internet. If you want copies you may send an e-mail to Jan Helling. He will then help you with information.
