Can anyone help me with the attached estate inventory? 

Sunnerbo häradsrätts arkiv, Bouppteckningar och arvskiften, SE/VALA/01582/F II/8 (1785-1787)

I think the first part is saying something like this (but I'm hoping someone can confirm or correct my understanding as needed):

28 December 1784 an estat3e inventory was taken following the death of “dannemann” Jonas Arvidsson in Kånna Arvidsgård (Kånna) on behalf of the child of his second marriage, daughter Karin, age 18 and daughter Maria, age 12 from his first marriage and his widow Märta Simonsdotter and son Pär age 4. 

I'm not at all sure what the end is saying (circled) so any help with this would be appreciated.

Thanks for your help,

Vicki

Attached is a 1727 tax record that I'm having trouble understanding.  It looks as if Pär and wife are listed twice at Stora Tannåker (it says dito by the second one).  Can anyone tell me if they are the same Pär and wife or two different ones?  What does the heading Arrendxxx? mean that is above the first one?  I've seen these same entries repeated for several years as I look the tax records each year.

Any help would be much appreciated,

Vicki

General questions / Need help with estate inventories
« skrivet: 2021-05-06, 19:11 »
In researching an ancestor's sibling, I found two different estate inventories for him:  the first one was when he died and I don't understand why there is another one for him in 1818. 

Attached is a copy of the listing showing 2 estate inventories for Jöns Forsberg.  (Sunnerbo häradsrätt (G) BouReg:2 (1735-1900) Image 157).  The first page of each is also attached.

Sunnerbo häradsrätt (G) FII:16 (1801) Image 231 / Page 382

https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v76231?image=265&page=484

Both are difficult to read.  It looks like the first mainly mentions the children of the 2nd marriage.  It looks like the second mentions earlier children??

Why would there be 2 estate inventories so far apart?

Any help would be much appreciated,

Vicki

Can anyone tell me what the note says on the attached 1693 tax record for Miäla?  I think the note is related to the person (Germund) listed below it.  Does it have to do with being a soldier?

Attached is a 1695 estate inventory from Stockholm.  Can anyone help me with the part that I've circled?

https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v222336?image=2850

It is an estate inventory that was done after the death of Nils Johansson Lillman in May 1695.  What does "Sal" before his name mean?  I am not sure what else that part says and wonder also what the reference to Hans von Gerdes is.  I'm trying to figure out if Lillman is a soldier name or ?.  Not sure at all what his connection to Stockholm would be.

The entry for Nils and Bengta on the attached tax record, indicates that they are mother and son.  It looks like it is saying that one of them is married.  Two people are being taxed if I read this correctly.  Who is married?  Is it the mother or the son?   It seems like it is the mother who is married, the son is not.

General questions / Need help with 1801 Estate Inventory
« skrivet: 2021-02-23, 16:12 »
Can anyone help me with the information regarding Anna Persdotter in the attached copies from the Estate Inventory for Per Hansson who died in November 1801?  My question is where his widow, Anna Persdotter, is still living at the time of this inventory.

He is not listed as a widower on his death record but I found a death record that may be hers earlier in the same year.  They are both listed on the 1798-1802 household records, but neither are listed after that.  There is a note by his name only indicating he died in 1801. 

Any help in understanding this part of the estate inventory would be greatly appreciated.

Attached is a 1754 baptismal record.  It begins at the bottom of the left hand page and is continued at the top of right hand page.

Ljungby (G) C:1 (1752-1815) Image: 7 Page: 7

It begins:

20 Jan 1754 is baptised Jonas Persson of Sickinge. Father is Jöns Persson.  Mother is Sigrid Jönsdotter.

Wouldn't his son's name be Jonas Jönsson, not Persson? 

Do I assume this is an error?

Can anyone help me understand the attached household record in Sickinge, Ljungby.  It is the first available household record for Ljungby parish - dates are not specifically referenced on the exam record although the listing indicates that the records end in 1793.  You can see the families and birth years for them so you can get some idea.

Ljungby (G) AI:1 (-1792) Image: 59 Page: 107
https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v18851?image=59

It looks like it says:
       Ibm (same place which is Sickinge) Jöns Jönsson (with a note after it) - this name is crossed out

       Ibm Jöns J? born 1732
       wife Margareta born 1714
       son Jöns born 1751
       daughter Anna born 1753

Then the these people are crossed out.

Are the first 2 names the same name? Did the first man die and the widow remarried someone much younger?  It is quite confusing. 

Any help with interpreting this would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

Vicki

She is also listed alone on the previous tax record for 1734 with no other information (at least that I can tell).

General questions / Need help with name on marriage record
« skrivet: 2021-01-08, 21:15 »
In reviewing the research on one of my families, I'd like to confirm the circled names listed on several records: a 1700 birth record, a 1723 marriage record and 1701 tax record to make sure they are correct (and the same as each other).

1. 1700 birth record for Britta B?dotter at Ularp, Angelstad - I thought it was Bengtsdotter but could it be something else?:

Angelstad-G-CI-1-1697-1747-Image-17-Page-23
https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v30821?image=17

2. 1723 marriage record for a Per Arvidsson and a Britta B?   Again, I thought her patronymic name was Bengtsdotter. 

Tannåker-F,-G-C-1-1688-1788-Image-99-Page-191
https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v32417?image=99

3. 1701 tax record for Britta's parents in Ularp, Angelstad parish lists two similar names - a B? and a Bengt.  The first line shows a B? and wife and a Nils and wife (I believe) and the second line shows a Bengt but doesn't indicate a wife or if any tax is paid - also there is a note which I'm not sure about.  Is it possible the B? is the correct name instead of Bengt?   

ArkivDigital: Mantalslängder 1642-1820 Kronobergs län 1642-1820 (G) 43 (1701) Image: 1280 Page: 1621
https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v840167?image=1280&page=1619

I hope this makes sense!  I want to make sure that I'm not mixing up similar names (and thereby mixing up families) as I move forward.  Especially on the tax record, these two "B" names look very similar to me.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks again,

Attached is a 1695 tax record for Sickinge, Ljungby that I am having trouble understanding.

My interpretation is that at Sickinge there are living the following people:

Erik and wife and Jöns and wife (4 adults)
(another) Jöns (with wife?) and a note which I can't understand - does it have to do with his wife?
(another) Jöns which could be a soldier?

The second is for 1719 in sickinge, Ljungby.  I think the same note is repeated at the top of the tax item.  I also need help interpreting  the record itself.  It appears that all the people are listed together as one family, is that correct?  If so, there are 4 adults - would that be Jöns and wife and Märta(?) and ?.  The 3 being Dr Anders and pig and a Dr J? Jönsson?  It is very confusing.  Who are the 4 and who are the 3?

Can anyone help me with how to get started researching the court records?  How do you decide where to begin?

I am looking to learn the patronymic name of a Lars who first appears in the tax records for Miäla in Torpa in 1724 and is listed as Lars (with no patronymic name) through 1727.  From 1729 -1731 there is a Lars Pårsson listed.  I think that Lars Pårsson may be my ancestor, father of Per Larsson b. 1725 in Miäla and his brother Anders b. 1731 in Miäla.  But, I don't know whether two Lars are the same person or not.

I've not been able to find a marriage record for a Lars Pårsson and ? in Torpa that fits the place and time (also checking nearby parishes of Annerstad, Vrå and Odensiö). And, to complicate matters, there is a 1723 Torpa marriage record for a Lars Månsson from Skeen in Annerstad who married the daughter (Gunnil Giermundsdotter) of the previous Miäla taxpayer, Giermund, who is listed in the 1723 and 1724 Miäla tax records.  Much later, from 1744-1746 there is a Lars Månsson listed on the Miäla tax records.

The only children I have found who were born to a Lars between 1723 and 1731 in Miäla are:

Per Larsson born 26 Jan 1725 (my ancestor):
Torpa-G-C-1-1690-1747-Image-81-Page-157   
https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v30192?image=81

Anders Larsson born 30 Jul 1731 (Per’s brother as noted in Per’s estate inventory):
Torpa-G-C-1-1690-1747-Image-87-Page-169   
https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v30192?image=87

So I don’t know which Lars is the father of Per Larsson  – is it Lars Månsson or Lars Pårsson?   Lars Pårsson seems more likely based on the naming of the two children and because he was listed at Miäla at the time that Anders was born in 1731. But, this is not certain.

Now I would like to attempt the court records but have no idea where to begin.  Should I start with the records around 1723 or 1724 (around the time Lars first appeared in the tax records)?  I am totally lost here but am willing to learn how to search through these records. 

Do you think this too much to post on the Swedish Torpa board?

Any ideas on how and where to begin would be very helpful and very much appreciated!

Thank you so much for any help with this,

Vicki

First, I apologize if this is something more than I should put here, but I'll give it try in case someone is willing to take to the time to read through it all.  I've to make it as concise as possible, so I appreciate any suggestions you can offer.

I am trying to determine which Lars is the father of my ancestor Pehr Larsson and his brother Anders Larsson who were born in Miäla (Torpa parish) in 1725 and 1731 respectively. These are the only two siblings I have found for this family.  It may be that they were from somewhere else and that there were more children earlier, but I have not found any children born after Anders.

Birth records
Pehr Larsson born 26 Jan 1725 Miäla, son of Lars, mother not listed - who is his father?
Torpa-G-C-1-1690-1747-Image-81-Page-157

Anders Larsson born 30 July 1731, son of Lars, mother not listed

 https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v30192?image=87

Household records for Miäla 1717-1723
On page 61 there is listed a Pehr (age 67) with wife Ingier (age 54) and son Jonas – may or may not be related to Per Larsson (maybe his grandfather? May be a stretch)
Torpa-G-AI-1-1717-1722-Image-41-Page-61.jpg
https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v19646?image=41

On page 62 in Miala is listed a Giermund (age 57) with wife (age 33) a daughter Ingier (age 15 - crossed out with a note having to do with Skeen I think) and a son Giermund (erased?).   Further down on the page are listed the names Lars and wife Gunnil with no additional detail (no children).  I believe that Giermund and Ingier are Gunnil’s parents.

https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v19646?image=42

Marriage record
If the parents were married in Torpa (and I know that is a big if), there are a couple possibilities:

The following marriage could explain the family’s connection to Miäla.  However, the names Måns and Gunnil don’t seem to fit into the naming pattern (although I only know of two children: Per and Anders for this family).  It would also fit with the timing of their first child Per.
23 Dec 1723 marriage between Drangan Lars Månsson from Skeen (Annerstad parish) and Pigan Gunnil Giermundsdotter in Miäla.
Torpa-G-C-1-1690-1747-Image-98-Page-191
https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v30192?image=98

This Lars would seem to explain the son named Per but the marriage took place at least a year after son Per was born (which is possible I realize) but there is no direct connection to Miäla.
1726 marriage between Drangan Lars Pehrsson of Abbeshult (Vrå parish) and Pigan Ingeborg Johansdotter in Gashult (Torpa parish)
Torpa-G-C-1-1690-1747-Image-99-Page-193
https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v30192?image=99

I also realize there may have been more than one marriage here – there is a six year age difference between the siblings.  Maybe there are 2 different fathers named Lars?

Tax records for Miäla – not sure how to tell if they are married, it seems only the husbands are listed
1723 Giermund
1724 Sven and Lars, Giermund and Gumme
1725 Sven, Lars and Jonas (or Jöns)
1726 Sven, Lars and p. Ingierd
1727 Sven, Lars, Gumme
1728 Sven, Bengt, Per Nilsson (there is a 1727 marriage record for a Pehr Nilsson who married174 an Ingier Giermundsdotter in Miäla -probably the sister of Gunnil Giermundsdotter).
1729 Sven, Lars Persson (this is the first time a last name is given)
1730 Sven w/daughter Brita, Lars Persson
1731 Sven Bengtsson, p. Kirstin, Lars Persson
1732 -1740 Lar is listed without a last name
1744 Sven Bengtsson, Lars Månsson (wife crippled) and son Per (under age 15)  The Per Larsson whose father I am trying to identify would have been 19 years old in 1744.
1745 Sven Svensson, Lars Månsson (wife crippled) and son Per. And a Jöns Larsson.
1746 Sven Svensson, Oluf Svensson, p. Kierstin, Lars Mansson (with a note – did he move out?, and a Jöns Larsson.
         Mantalslängder-1642-1820-Kronobergs-län-1642-1820-G-53-1746-Image-2440-Page-977
         https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v840177?image=2440&page=977
1747 No Lars is listed.

Death record
I found the following record (is this the death record for the wife of Lars Månsson?) dated 28 Mar 1747, buried 6 April:
Torpa-G-C-1-1690-1747-Image-121-Page-233
https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v30192?image=121

Does anyone have any suggestions or comments for what they feel is likely or unlikely here?  At first glance, it seemed like the Lars Mansson who married Gunnil Giermundsdotter was the likely father based on marriage date and timing of birth of Per in January 1725.  But, the first time Lars Mansson is listed with full name in the tax records there was in 1744 (not that an earlier Lars (with no last name) could not have been him also).  That a Lars Persson appeared in the tax records there for three years (1729-1731) is also confusing as Per’s brother Anders was born in 1731. 

It’s a head scratcher.  😊

Not sure where to go next with this as I’ve looked through all the records I can think of.  Maybe it is another one I’ll have to set aside for now.  But, I’m open for suggestions!

Thanks so much for your help!

I'm trying to locate Pehr/Peter and Christian Anström/er (or possibly Jöransson) in the General Muster rolls for the Jönköping Regiment around 1739-1742 or so.  A google search led me to the Source: General Muster - Jönköping Regiment 372 (1741-1742), Image 5 and page 368 where a (Sergeant) Peter Anström is supposedly listed.  However, I don't find his name listed there.  His commanding officer Per Silfversparre is listed but not Peter. 

I also "paged" through most of the 1739 muster roll for the Jönköping Regiment but found nothing so far.  If anyone can help me locate Peter I would really appreciate it!

Can anyone help with the attached household exam record for 1718-1723?  I believe it is for my ancestor Jöran Jonsson and family, parents of daughter Karin Jöransdotter who was born in 1724 (just after this record ends).  The household record beginning with her birth year is not available. 

I'm trying to figure out whether all the people listed on the left-side are part of that same family or not.  Two of the names are crossed out - maybe they moved somewhere else and were unrelated?  Might the last 4 names be their children?  It looks like the first 2 are designated as sons (Jon and Pehr) but the last 2 names (Christian and Lars) are not designated as such (both boys).

I think I've found a birth record that I've been looking for but it is confusing to me in the way it is written up.  Can someone confirm that the birth record attached and highlighted shows the birth information for:

18 Apr (1738) born to Per Jönsson a child in Össjöa and baptized ?? with the name Jöns.  This is followed by the list of sponsors. 

This was easy to miss and wonder why it was recorded that way - were 2 children baptized same day?

« skrivet: 2020-08-20, 15:49 »
I have a question on the attached tax record in regard to the name.  It looks like Jön - could it be Johan?   This is different from other records that show him as Joh or Johan.  I think it is still my ancestor because of the note that they are poor and have 7 children.  This description fits my ancestor but want to make sure I'm still  following the right person. I know, according the household records, that they are still in Jonsbo at this time.

I've been trying unsuccessfully to find tax records in Bolmsö parish (Jönköping) for the farm/village called Jonsbo.  I have not been able to find it in any of the years I've checked (from 1701 to 1718) and even some random records in the 1730's and 1740's.  The handwriting has been a challenge in the early records especially, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

If anyone can locate Jonsbo on any tax record between 1702-1718 I would be very appreciative, then, hopefully, I will be able to find it on the tax records for other years.  I'm trying specifically to locate Johan Staffansson and his wife Ingeborg Andersdotter whose children were all born between 1702 and 1717 in Jonsbo.  I believe I should be able to find them there if I can find Jonsbo.

General questions / Question about parish boundaries
« skrivet: 2020-08-14, 22:37 »
I am curious if it is possible that in the late 1600's/early 1700's that some of the properties that were in one parish were included in the books of the other.  My question is specifically about Berga, Kronoberg and Vittaryd, Kronoberg.

I am having trouble locating people/places in the tax records for Vittaryd parish that I think should be there. For example, I'm trying to locate the soldier Sven Bengtsson Siöberg and his wife (married in 1717).  Their children, born 1718, 1720, 1723 and 1726 were all born in Torset (modern day translation), Vittaryd while he was still a soldier.  I would think that there would be a tax record for, at least, the wife during that time period.  I also don't see a Torset listed in Vittaryd, but there are several Torsets in Berga.  At this point, I feel like I'm looking in the wrong place for their tax records.  Or maybe I just  have the place name wrong?? 

Attached is a copy of the birth record of his youngest child b. 1726 so you can see his parents names and birthplace.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

General questions / Need help with 1818 estate inventory

Attached is an 1818 estate inventory for Jacob Svensson of Malmaryd. 

Basically I know it says they took an estate inventory after the death of Jacob Svensson on 27th April (1818) for the benefit of his heirs.

A few questions: 
* Does the word danneman simply mean husband? 
* How many children are mentioned? 
* It looks like he specifically only refers to 2 of his sons - Håkan from his first marriage and Sven from his second marriage.
* Is that the end of the commentary (does it end at the squiggly lines)?

« skrivet: 2020-08-03, 22:45 »
Attached is the beginning of the 1816 estate inventory for Ingebor Svensson.  Even though it is very neatly written, I cannot understand all of it.

My very basic understanding is that the estate inventory was taken at Malmaryd on 1st July (1816) after the death of Ingebor Svensson.  It states that she is leaving behind a husband, Jacob Svensson, and grown children.  They had 7 children together: sons Sven and Petter, daughters Britta, Eling, Kattrina, Anna, and Lena. 

It looks like the property? stays with widower Jacob Svensson but there is a contingency?  I don't know - it was quite confusing.

The attached birth record for one of my ancestors, Catharina Samuelsdotter, lists her father’s name, Samuel Larsson, and her mother’s name, Elin with a blank space after it for her patronymic name, which was never filled in.

https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v29940?image=134

I found her in the following household records for Hjortseryd, Vrå, Kronoberg:

•   1803-1807 Samuel and Eling with 4 children including Catharina     Vrå-G-AI-1-1788-1817-Image-115-Page-215

•   1824-1832 Samuel Larsson and Eling Jacobsdotter with 7 children including Catharina     Vrå (G) AI:2 (1821-1832) Image: 108 Page: 201
•   1831-1835 Lists Samuel Larsson and Elin Jacobsdotter with children, Catharina has married in 1834 and is listed separately with her husband on the same page  ArkivDigital: Vrå (G) AI:3 (1831-1841) Image: 29 Page: 22

I looked at the birth records for all her siblings and found conflicting information for the mother – her patronymic name is Jacobsdotter once, Blank 3 times, Persdotter twice and Jonsdotter 3 times! 

•   Johannes b. 1800 was illegitimate, born to Elin Jacobsdotter at age 26,  no father listed.
•   Catharina b. 1802 father Samuel Larsson, mother Elin <BLANK>
•   Lars b. 1804 father Samuel Larsson, mother Elin Persdotter
•   Sven b. 1806 father Samuel Larsson, mother Elin <BLANK>
•   Anna b. 1808 father Samuel Larsson, mother Elin Jonsdotter  (Anna died same year)
•   Anna b. 1809 father Samuel Larsson, mother Elin Jonsdotter
•   Petter b. 1811 father Samuel Larsson, mother Elin Persdotter
•   Nils b. 1814 father Samuel Larsson, mother Elin Jonsdotter
•   Johanna b. 1816 father Samuel, mother Elin <BLANK>

Samuel Larsson appears in the tax records with his family from 1803 through 1839 listing children, sometimes by number and sometimes by name.  Samuel Larsson’s name was still listed, but it was crossed out, in 1840.  Eling died in March 1839 and Samuel died a couple weeks later.

I know this is a lot of information but I want to try to figure out who Catharina's mother was - all I know for sure is her first name is Elin.

I believe that my ancestor Catharina’s mother’s name was Elin Jacobsdotter – is that a fair assumption?  I also believe that Elin Jacobsdotter is the mother of all the children.  Samuel Larsson and Elin Jacobsdotter were married in Angelstad in 1801.   All the children, with the exception of Johannes b. 1800 were born within the 1801 marriage date and 1839 death dates.
.
I'd appreciate your thoughts on my assumption and/or if there's anything more I could check.

General questions / Questions on 1745 tax record

https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v400710?image=4710&page=1179

The items circled in yellow relate to my ancestor, Anders Nilsson, at Stråhult.  The items circled in purple relate to another Anders Nilsson, at Singsjö.

1. Would properties located next to each other usually appear next to each other on the tax records? (they would be close neighbors)? 
2. It looks like one Anders Nilsson is married and one is not- so I am assuming they are two different people.  Is that correct?  (The reason I ask is because an Anders Nilsson from Singsjö is the first witness listed for the baptism of the first grandchild - so I first thought it must be Anders Nilsson the grandfather but maybe it is Anders Nilsson the neighbor!) These two Anders Nilsson both continue to be listed at the same properties continuously at least through the time this first grandchild was born-  it is very possible they are neighbors.  Very confusing.  I hope you can understand my question.  The grandchild's birth record is found at:

https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v29940?image=89
Vrå-G-C-1-1701-1823-Image-89-Page-167

3. What does the circled note say? 

I'd like to be to clarify that these two Anders Nilssons are separate individuals, that they are not the same individual who was taxed on two different properties (I don't even know if that was possible).

If anyone can help with these questions, I'd be most appreciative.

Thanks so much,

It looks like there are two additional columns: one describing the equipment he was provided and the other contains general notes. Only the first of these is filled in.

Was he an infantryman?  Does this describe the equipment he received/had? 

Just looking at the two records you can see where the Weckman/Beckman came from.

Generalmönsterrullor--Kronobergs-regemente-G-330-1717-Image-307
https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v46668?image=307

It follows the same format as previous year but, again, I can understand the easier things, such as:
Rote: Tommaryd
Name:  Corp Måns Andersson Weckman
Soldier Nr: 93 (this changed from 94 the previous year)
Age: 31
Years in Service: 8
Province: Smaland

The notes seem again to mention his equipment but I cannot tell if there is anything else.

I have followed Måns Andersson from Torpa parish to Hinneryd and subsequently back to Torpa.  The 1717-1722 Torpa household records noted that he moved to Hinneryd parish. I have followed him in the tax records in those places from 1717 to 1744 when his farm was eventually taken over by his son-in-law.  :)  Great fun!  This one is for sure my soldier!

Now I'm hoping to learn about his military service.  Any help from anyone who can help me to understand more about his life in the military would be really appreciated. 

Thank you so much,

Vicki Cihla

General questions / Need help in how to look for a court record
« skrivet: 2020-07-11, 01:08 »
I am trying to locate a court record for a "pension agreement" between a father and son in Odensjö, Kronoberg.  On ArkivDigital, I found the court records are accessible under Sunnerbo häradsrätt by year.  The description for this is in Swedish but I believe I am in the correct place to start.

Unfortunately, the years 1749/1750 are missing from the list of available court records for Kronoberg.

There is another set of books called Göta Hovrätt - Advokatfiskalen Kronobergs län - where I can access the following:

Göta Hovrätt - Advokatfiskalen Kronobergs län EVIIBAA:6431 for the year 1750 (there is not one for 1749 for Kronoberg)

The description for these records is also in Swedish:

"Advokatfiskalens uppgifter vid Göta hovrätt var att vara kronans ombudsman i hovrätten, som allmän åklagare, som granskare av underrätternas verksamhet m.m
Här finns bla. renoverade domböcker, småprotokoll från Häradsrätter, Rådhusrätter, lagmansrätter etc.

Vi har valt att dela upp Advokatfiskalens arkiv efter län och årtal eftersom det är tusentals volymer i denna arkivbildare. Annars skulle det bli helt oöverskådligt."

Can anyone tell me if these records might also contain a "pension agreement" or are these not the records I should be using for this type of record?

Any help would be much appreciated.

  * Am I correct in my understanding of a previous response, that the person at the bottom of the list is the soldier himself and all names of the men above him are those who are responsible for supplying his equipment, etc.?

I have found a birth record that I believe is one I am looking for but would welcome any thoughts on my assessment. 

The birth record I had been trying to locate is for a Lars Pehrsson born in 1720, however no place of birth was indicated (this is according to the Vrå household records for 1788-1802 where he raised his family).  His marriage record indicated he was living in Vrå at the time of his marriage in 1767.  I found no birth record for a Lars Pehrsson in Vrå that fit.

Further research led me to his previous marriage record, which indicated he was living at Groeryd, Torpa at the time of his first marriage.  I searched the birth records around 1720 and found a birth record for a Lars dated 10 July 1721 in Gashult, Torpa.  It was the only match that was even close.  There are no household records for Vrå available on arkivdigital prior to 1788. This birth record indicates he was born to a soldier Pehr Groberg (I previously asked for help on this birth record).  (The distance between Groeryd, Torpa and Gashult, Torpa Sweden per internet search is 7.4 kilometers, a 10 minute drive via Hinneryd Tallåsvägen so it seems possible that Per Simonsson Groberg is his father).
 
I would like to try to determine whether this Lars Pehrson is the Lars Pehrsson that I'm looking for.   It seems so, but would really value an outside opinion.

There is no estate inventory after his death (there was one done after his first wife died only). 

I would welcome any thoughts on this or any other ideas on what I can check.

Thanks so much for your help,

4. Johannes Nilsson - I don't know what his role is - was it also related to Catharina?

This is my basic understanding:

On 1826, 29 Sept, an estate inventory was taken for Gudmen Charlson (Gudmund Carlsson) who died 9 July.  He left behind a widow and their 6 children, 4 sons: Lars 33 years old, son Charl 23 years old, son Anders 20 years old, son Johannes 15 years old, represented by Jonas Gudmundsson in Bägaryd, older daughter Johanna 28 years old was represented by Pär Andersson in Groeryd and other daughter Katarina 25 years old -  who are Olaf Pärsson in Miäla and Johannes Nilsson in Balkeryd?

The first two people on the list are related to the children.  I'm trying to understand, since the daughters are aged 25 and 28, if they were being assigned a guardian if they were unmarried or if there is any indication of their marital status.  I have not seen any evidence of them being married at that time.  Would each child have a separate representative or guardian? 

One other thing - his widow was Kiersten Larsdotter but I don't see her name on the first page.  Is it there and I just missed it?   She is named on the last page of the inventory at bottom of page 925 located at: https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v76235?image=481

General questions / Help with 1856 Estate Inventory
« skrivet: 2020-05-10, 19:45 »
Can anyone confirm my overall understanding of the 1856 estate inventory on the top half of page 2041 for Lars Gummesson?

My understanding is that:

On the 25th of April 1856, an auction was held after the death of Lars Gummesson in Ossjoa in Torpa parish the previous November.  The proceeds were to be divided up/distributed between his widow Catherina Samuelsdotter and their 2 daughters, Bengta  who was married to Gustaf Isacksson, and daughter Johanna, who was represented by Carl Gummesson in Stackarp.

12 December (1761) died and 20 December (1761) buried Jöns Jönsson married to Britta Stensdotter living in Kånnå Knutsgård, 40 1/2 years old, died of hetsig feber (probably typhoid).

Can someone confirm my translation?  The question I have is does this record refer to the death Jöns Jönsson or his wife?  I don't usually see a spouse's name included.

https://app.arkivdigital.se/volume/v76211?image=10

On February 28 an estate inventory was taken after the death of Elin Eriksdotter.  Why was an inventory taken after her death?  Usually it is taken after the husband dies (or it seems that way).  Her husband, Jonas Arvidsson, was still living. Why wouldn't he be listed as the surviving spouse?  Did I miss it?

Does she have 3 children or 3 sons?  It looks like she has 2 daughters, aged 10 and 8.  I am not sure who the child is who is 3 years old.  It also looks like there is mention of mother's brother(s)?, the children's uncles? I think they may have assisted with the inventory - Joran Ericsson and Anders Ericsson listed on the last page could be her brothers.

I found an estate inventory that I need some help with.  Specifically, on page 272, I'm trying to figure out the headings for a list of names in two places on page 272 (see attached).  What are these lists of names?   Also, on the bottom of the last page, there is a note, not sure if it is related to this inventory or not.  Any help would be appreciated with these 2 things.

So far, from the first page of the inventory, I know that the inventory was taken on June 26, 1772 after the death of Lars Pehrsson.  He left a widow Elin Andersdotter and 2 young daughters (Bengta, age 3 1/2 years and Kierstin, age 1 year).  From this I learned two of his brothers, Nils Pehrsson from ?, and Anders Pehrsson from Torpa, assisted with the inventory. 

Maybe the people listed will help determine more of the family relationships, but I'm not sure what these lists represent.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Today I found an estate inventory record that appears to contain a lot of useful information about places and family relationships to the person who died.  I already have a lot of information about these people but want to cross check what I have and add to it as required for further research.  Because it is so difficult to read the handwriting, and because I'd like to learn as much as I can from this information, I am at a loss as to how to ask for help.  I'm not including the document here because I am not looking for someone to translate it for me.  How can I get help without asking too much?.  Should I ask questions about individuals separately and offer what I already know?  Should I ask about the names I see that I don't know anything about?  Should I say what I think it might say? 

Any help on this would really be appreciated,

In following the family of Bengt Persson and Karin Nilsdotter through several household records between 1810 and 1847, I can see that they were a very, very poor family.  I need some help with the notes I've outlined on the attached 4 records, hoping i sheds more light on their lives.

1 Annerstad-G-AI-5-1810-1812-Image-102-Page-179 - this is the first indication that they are poor - I can't read the first line but think it references a place in Skatelof?? and I'm not sure if "utfattig" (very poor) relates to the line above it or not.

2 Annerstad-G-AI-7-1818-1824-Image-143-Page-273 - these notes are difficult to read - I think the first line re-iterates their poverty but I have no idea what the references listed relate to - could these be legal references (court cases??).  I have been told that sometimes that information regarding court cases are sometimes listed on the household exam records but I am not sure what that looks like). 

3 Annerstad-G-AI-9-1831-1838-Image-207-Page-401 - this one lists comments for each family member starting with Bengt Persson followed by wife and children.  I know the first line refers to him as a beggar but am not sure about the rest.

4 Annerstad-G-AI-11-1844-1850-Image-242-Page-23 - this record has just a short note - maybe an abbreviation??  Not sure what it means - but the does show that the widower Bengt Persson died in 1847, maybe it's related to that?

Will someone look at the attached 1744 birth record and tell me if Ingeborg is the child's name - I think it is a birth record for twins but I'm not sure.   Also, I'm trying figure out the father's name and if the mother's name is listed at all. 

Thanks for any help you can give!

I need help reading the attached marriage record for Jacob Svensson (maybe Svensson is not correct). 

Angelstad-G-CI-2-1747-1809-Image-102-Page-195.jpg

It looks like it records the marriage on April 15, 1754 between Jacob Svensson(?) and the widow Britta Persdotter(?). 

I cannot figure out where either of them are from.  Any help with this would be very much appreciated!

I am trying to locate the 1720 birth record for Lars Persson and think I have found it - if I'm reading the child's name correctly as Lars. If this is correct I will probably need more help  :) but if it is not correct, for future reference, what is the name?

Any help would be much appreciated!

I am looking for confirmation as to whether I'm reading a location that was noted in a household record. 
Vrå-G-AI-1-1788-1817-Image-55-Page-95.jpg

I think it says 1796 Angelstad

Can anyone confirm whether this is correct? If not, any ideas what it says?

Thanks for any help on this!

I need help reading attached marriage record (Vrå (G) C:1 (1701-1823) Image: 12 Page: 17).  I think it says the marriage took place December (ditto from previous record) 28 between (?) Lars Pårsson of Norr Emeboda and ? Kirsten Eriksdotter from  ?hult. 

What does it say before Lars' name?  What does it say before Kirsten's name? What is the name of where she is from?  I can't figure out what the letter that looks like a 2 is.  :)

Any help would be appreciated!

I need help with the attached place name - it was a note on the far right of a household exam record - I believe it means this person moved to another parish in 1818 but have no idea where it says they moved to - can anyone help?

Thank you!

I need help with reading the attached 1802 birth record for Catherina Samuelsdotter.  The birth record is from Wrå (Vrå?).  I can't read the name of the place in Vrå where she was born.  Beyond that I understand it to say she was born on 20 December and 26 of same month was baptised.  The father is Samuel Svensson?? and the mother is Elin (not listed).  Sponsors are listed after that.  Any help would be appreciated!

Does anyone know anything about the life of Samuel Hansson prior to 1777?  Where was he born???

The earliest record I have for him is his marriage to Brita Ericksdtr in 1777 in Annerstad.  Brita was from Hallarp (in Annerstad) and I am trying to discover where Samuel Hansson was from/born.  His birth would be sometime between 1743 – 1750 most likely.

The earliest record I found for him was his 1777 marriage to Brita Ericksdtr that I obtained from the 2002 KGF database as follows (I have since found the digital copy also):

Vigseldatum: 1777
Forsamling: Annerstad
Brudgummen:
Titel: Drangen
Fornamn: Samuel
Efternamn: Hansson
Bostad:
Alder:
Anmarkning:
Bruden:
Titel: Pigan
Fornamn: Brita
Efternamn: Ericksdotter
Bostad: (Hallarp)
Alder:
Postnr: 8982
County: Kronoberg
Parish: Annerstad
Country: Sweden
Record Type: Vigsel (Marriage)
Year Range: 1751 - 1814
GID Number: 447.18.16800
Volume: CI:2
Roll/Fiche Number: IJ-26
Page Number: 309

This is what I know about Samuel Hansson:

All of Samuel Hansson’s 9 children (that I aware of) were born in Torpa.  Five were born at Häggeshult Södergård, two were born at Stackarp and two at Forssa.

The household exam records follow the family throughout the years as follows:

•   1784-1788 Häggeshult Södergård, Torpa
•   1796-1800 Forssa, Torpa
•   1801-1805 Forssa, Torpa but moved to Rånte in 1803 (This was noted on this household exam record and explains why Samuel is listed on two different household records for the years 1801-1805 – this explanation thanks to a generous member of the forum!)
•   1801-1805 Rånte, Torpa
•   1806-1809 Forssa, Torpa (notes that he was poor (translated by member of forum!)
•   1810-1814 Rånte, Torpa (notes that Samuel Hansson is poor and living in Måsseboda (again, translated by member of forum!)
•   1815-1821 Rya Backstugen, Torpa (notes indicate he is poor, his wife Brita died in 1818)
•   1822-1826 Rya Backstugen, Torpa (this household exam record lists birthplace (it looked like either Bolmsö or Unnaryd (Södra or Norra) – but I could not find a birth record for Samuel Hansson at any of those places in that estimated timeframe of his birth.)
•   1827-1832 household records show that the widower Samuel Hansson died in 1830.  His birthplace is listed as Skatelöf on this record!   But, again, I found no record of his birth there either. 

His death records show he died poor on Christmas Day in 1830. 

I’ve checked (and rechecked) the Torpa and Annerstad birth records but could not find him there either.

I truly appreciate the help I have received thus far, and if anyone has any information on the life of this Samuel Hansson prior to 1777 or who has any other suggestions as to where I could look to discover his place of birth, I would really like to hear from you. 

Thanks for your help!

Attached is a copy of a 1745 marriage record that I need help with.  The marriage is between a Jön Jönsson from ? and maiden Britta ? from Kånna Norrgård.

I'm trying to figure out where the groom is from and what the bride's patronymic name is.   

I have also attached their son's birth record (Sten Jönsson) which lists his parents names but I can't tell what his mother's patronymic name is there either.   It looks like maybe Pavelsdtr or Paulsdtr??

Thank you for any help with this.

General questions / Help with location and names

Ulf Svensson has kindly confirmed that I have read the marriage record for Samuel Hansson correctly!  Now I have further questions about Samuel Hansson - in regard to where he was born.  I followed the family through the Torpa household exam records, but was having trouble locating a birth record for Samuel Hansson - nothing in Torpa (where they raised their family)  or Annerstad (where they were married).  I finally found a clue in the last 2 household records for the (widower) Samuel Hansson, both records are attached.  I cannot figure out what is written for his birth location on the 1822-1826 record, but the 1827-1832 record seems to read Skatelöf.  The final record, if I'm reading it correctly, also indicates he was very poor.   

Assuming now that he was born in Skatelöv, the only birth record I can find that is close to the 1748 birth year listed on most of the family household exam records, was in 1750 in Krokstorp (or Krogstorp) in Skatelöv.  A copy of that birth record is attached.  Can you confirm my translation that the child's name is Samuel Hansson and the parents are listed as Hans Samuelsson and Elizabeth Månsdtr?  I find the name Hans particularly difficult to decipher.  His mother's patronymic name is also difficult for me. 

Thanks so much for your help!
