Ingrid Bergman was a Swedish actress. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress, twice, for Gaslight (1944) and Anastasia (1956), and the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for Murder on the Orient Express (1974).
Her mother, Friedel Henrietta (Adler), was German, from Kiel, Germany. Her father, Justus Samuel Bergman, was Swedish. Her daughter, with Italian director Roberto Rossellini, is actress Isabella Rossellini.
Ingrid’s paternal grandfather was Johan Petter/Peter Bergman (the son of Jonas Månsson and Marta/Martha Jönasdotter/Jönsdotter). Jonas was the son of Måns Johansson and Ingeborg Jonsdotter. Marta was the daughter of Jöns Johansson.
Ingrid’s paternal grandmother was Brita Sofia/Sophia Samuelsdotter (the daughter of Samuel Lorentz Bengtsson and Maria Andersdotter). Samuel was the son of Bengt Christoffer Samuelsson and Brita Sophia Hielmberg. Maria was the daughter of Anders Svensson and Lisbeth Amundsdotter.
According to the book, Ingrid Bergman, A Personal Biography (2007), by Charlotte Chandler, Ingrid was told by her mother’s sister, Elsa Adler, that her family had Jewish ancestry. It is not clear if this is accurate, or more specifically, if Ingrid had verified Jewish ancestry.
