Welcome to August and Josef homepage!

As stated this site is primarily for the descendants to August and Josef Hammar but everyone is welcome. This site is created by me, Johan Hammar, a great grandson of Josef and I soon hope to get some assistance by Mats Widgren a grandson of Josef. Here we hope to soon publish letters, documents and pictures from the lives of the two brothers.

I have access to the material left after Josef Hammar and we also have access to some of August Hammar’s works through Mike Hathorn a grandson to August. Of course we’re also glad for any contributions from others with access to related material. Some translation work have been done of letters originally in Swedish by Elisabet Hammar, granddaughter of Josef, and me but there is more to be done.

Now, we will start to organize this material and slowly upload it to this site but have patience because this will take some time and this is a spare time project.


Please feel free to contact us with any questions or if you want to contribute in any way. Use the contact form.
