I was born 1927 in Berlin, Germany.
195l I came to Sweden where I have lived since.
At first I worked as a building engineer.
Later I started a small company: Collings Systems.
During the 70th I was politically interested in local government
and became the first immigrant mayor of Botkyrka
a municipality in Sweden, South of Stockholm,
of about 70 000 inhabitants
During the 80th I was Chief of Tourism of Botkyrka.
Already during the 70th I became interested in
BBS´s and computer communication activities.
During the earlier days of the Internet
I became interested in Genealogy and started the
Rootweb Mailing List for the Colling Family Name
for which I have been the moderator since.
Through this list I have come in contact with many
interesting Collings from history and from today.
Collings do not have to be related because the name is generic.
But there were many on the list who wondered who I was.
Thus I wrote these Anecdotes -
even if my life has not been so interesting as others.
