Titel: Access to Karlskoga bergslags häradsrätt?
Skrivet av: B. Van skrivet 2017-05-21, 00:43
Hello all!

My 2nd great-grandfather, who went by many names in his life but started out as Anders Gustaf Andersson, was born illegitimate on Oct 20 1853 in Karlskoga, Örebro län, Sverige. His mother's name was Sara Cristina (or Stina) Persdotter from Nora Landsförsamling, Örebro, Sweden born 18 Feb 1830 in Karlskoga, Örebro län, Sverige. She had a brother named Anders but her father's name was Per Nilsson so I think she named him after the supposed father. Later she married another man and he took that man's last name (Welam or Welamsson). His stepfather's name was Per Erik Welamsson. Anders later emigrated to America and brought the whole surviving family in fits and starts including several half brothers and his mother.

Does anyone know where I would look for any records of paternity? There is nothing in the church books that mention who the father might have been, just that his mother at the time was löske, I'm pretty sure the man she married was not his father as he never seems to have officially claimed him and she married him almost five years after his birth, and due to Anders and his half brother marrying two sisters, DNA is bit tangled.

Klas Wallén pointed me to this subforum and suggested I ask here for help accessing any books like church fine records or the judgement books of the Karlskoga bergslags häradsrätt which are not yet available online. Can anyone please help me break through this brick wall?  :)
