Here are some interesting articles from the Daily Argus of Rock Island newspaper posted on the US Library of Congress' website.  All are from the Moline Township section of the newspaper.  I am unable to prove that this is the same Nels Peterson.
https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/


Dec 6. 1876: [note: poor OCR transcription so only partially included] Serious Accident. A serious accident occurred last evening which may result in the death of the injured party. As nearly as can be ascertained the facts are as follows: About 7 o'clock last evening Dr. Gordon was driving along Moline avenue in his buggy and when near Sinnitt's addition two men jumped suddenly in front of the horse ... causing it to rear up and knocking the person down. ... He found that the injured man was Nels Peterson, who resides near the west ward school house. ...
https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn92053942/1876-12-06/ed-1/seq-1/


Dec 7, 1876: Nels Peterson is not expected to live.  Dr. McKinnie who is in attendance fears that effusion of the brain will set in.  This is the man who was injured on Tuesday night as mentioned in last evening's ARGUS.  Doctor Gordon has been unremitting in his attentions and sincerely regrets that he is the innocent cause of the unfortunate accident.  No possible blame can attach to the doctor.
https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn92053942/1876-12-07/ed-1/seq-1/


Dec 14, 1876:  Dr. P. L. McKinnie reports Nels Peterson's condition as worse, if anything and his chances of recovery doubtful.  Peterson does not appear to understand anything and when addressed answers all questions with "yes".  Thus far all efforts to rouse him from this condition have  failed and his death may be expected at any time.

Dec 21, 1876:  [only partially transcribed here] Dr. P. L. McKinnie has again assumed charge of the Nels Peterson case, by request of Doctor Gordon. ... with proper care, he may recover; unless brain fever should result ... As yet he recollects nothing of the accident ...

Hej Irene, den här familjen emigrerade till Danmark före 1925 och dottern Karen är inte listad så kanske dog förrän då. Selmas födelsedatum är listad som 25 december 1891 i Sverige.

Hello Christina, the Emibas emigration CD states "Osäkert utflyttningsår" for the 1914 year of emigration, so I think this might be your Alexander arriving in Halifax, Nova Scotia in March of 1911.  The ships manifest states that he is traveling to Frevie (I am not sure I am reading that correctly), British Columbia and his occupation is "miner".  He appears to be travelling with another Swede named Karl E. Karlsson, who is listed immediately above him and is going to the same place.

Some more details about Selma Johanson:  on 23 Dec 1908 she married Bror Henning Efraim Augustsson, who was born 30 May 1883 in Malmbäck.  They had a son Henning Eskil Emanuel who was born 1 Jun 1909 in Kråkshult.  On 10 Mar 1911 they obtained a moving out certificate from the parish priest in Kråkshult to emigrate to N. America.  Source: Kråkshult AIIa:2 (1906-1923) image 63 / page 51. 

According to the Emigranten CD they left Göteborg 22 Mar 1911 bound for Fillmore, Saskatchewan.

Some more details about Otto Karlsson from Karlstorp.  His father Karl Jonsson died 14 Dec 1888 in Karlstorp (source: Karlstorp AI:17 (1887-1891) image 66 / page 51).

Stina Cajsa Hägg was born 24 May 1823 in Karlstorp, her father was soldier Sven Peter Hågg and her mother was his wife Elizabeth Israelsdotter (source: Karlstorp C:3 (1776-1844) image 120 / page 235).  Elizabeth Israelsdotter was born 1 Jun 1798 in Målilla (source: Karlstorp AI:9 (1841-1848) image 241 / page 232)  Sven Peter Hägg was born 6 Apr 1793 in Gårdveda to parents Hemming Haraldsson and Catharina Jönsdotter (source: Gårdveda C:2 (1715-1800) image 360 / page 689).

27
Some more puzzle pieces:  in Stina Kajsa Hägg's 1885 bouppteckning (estate inventory, source: Aspelands häradsrätt FII:45 (1885-1889) Image 90) it states "sonen Otto Karlsson som vistas i Nord Amerika" "son Otto Karlson is living in North America -- so we know that this Otto was somewhere in North America the year after your ancestor married in Iowa.

Also Otto had a brother Bror Alfred (born 23 May 1863 Karlstorp) who was married 17 Dec 1887 to Sofia Lovisa Persdotter (born 19 Mar 1863 Målilla).  They had a son Karl Oskar Leonard born 14 Jul 1888 in Karlstorp and then they emigrated to N. America 11 Apr 1889 (source: Karlstorp AI:17 (1887-1891) image 70 / page 55). 

According to the 1910 US Census on Ancestry.com there was a Bror A. Carlberg living in Iowa with his wife Sophia.   So it appears that Bror Alfred from Karlstorp also used the surname Carlberg after emigrating to Iowa from Sweden.

Hello Christopher, Gustaf Petersson born 27 Jan 1845 in Arby was the son of Båtsman Peter Petersson Bjugg and Fredrika Svensdotter.  Here is Peter Bjugg in the Blekinge och Södre Möre Båtsman Register (http://diginpast.se/bmregister/arby/index.html).

Gustaf moved 22 Nov 1862 from Kristinelund, Arby to Värmby #11, Halltorp (source: Arby AI:7 1861-70 page 45).  He then moved 13 Nov 1863 to Resmo (source:  Halltorp AI:9 1861-71 page 181).  I have not found him yet in Resmo since there are no moving in registers for 1863 at Ancestry.com.

Hello again Carol, I think that Mathilda Maria Nyblom is not your relative.  Here she is with John Larson and their children in the 1900 census, Mathilda Maria was still alive then so she can't be the right person since your Mathilda Maria died in 1899.  Also since you're certain that they were married in 1894 in Minnesota and they were married in 1892 in Chicago, they are not the correct John and Mathilda Maria Larson.

Hi David, Ola Persson is listed as Sjöm., short for Sjöman or seaman. It looks like when he first joined the family in 1858 that he was also a foster child.  Eskil's name was crossed out and replaced with Mårtensson likely because the priest realized he had written down the wrong patrynomic for Eskil.  The letters next to his name I think are s[e]. p[agina] 315 (Hörby 75), where the family lived until 1853 when they moved to Lörby 16.  You'll find them in AI:8 at Hörby 75, page 175.  Bruk. is short for Brukare, which I think was a tenant farmer.  I don't see any reason why Anna moved away, probably the family couldn't afford all those children and I would guess that the foster mother Bengta Mårtensdotter might have been related to Eskil, perhaps his older sister?

Hi David, the record of the widow Sissa Nilsdotter that Kristina found (Mjällby AI:1 (1804-1814) Bild 1210 / sid 164 (AID: v96406a.b1210.s164, NAD: SE/LLA/13269) ) is a communion log and according to page 93 that section of the log covers the period 1809-1814.  Two lines below Sissa there is a Nils, age 8 3/4; since this record was started in 1809 he would have been born in 1800 and could likely be the child born in Sölvesborg in 1800.  During that time period it was a crime to have sex outside of marriage and the birth of an illegitimate child would be evidence of that crime.  There would usually be a court record in a set of logs called Dombok, unfortunately ArkivDigital does not have any of these logs from 1800 or 1801 for Listers Härad, of which Mjällby was a part.  They are available on microfilm at a Family History Center though you should be aware that they are often difficult to read especially if you don't know much Swedish.  However, these records often list the name of the child's father.

The woman (and often man) would usually have to pay a fine to the church.  Record of these fines would be found in the Kyrkliga Räkenskaper, which are in the Swedish Church Records collection at Ancestry.com.  In the Mjällby Räkenskaper for 1792-1814 on Image 151 there is a record of hustru Sissa Nilsdotter from Hörby who (I think during 1801) page a fine of 32 (I'm not sure of the denomination, it was probably either Risksdaler or Krona).  There's also a Bengt Persson from Hörby on the preceding page who might have paid a fine and could be the father.

Hi David, about your earlier question of whether Bengta might have used the name Bessie in the US:  if you Google Bengta Bessie you'll see that it was not uncommon for women named Bengta to have used Bessie after emigrating.  Sometimes women named Bengta also used Betty or Betsy.  Per the Illinois Statewide Marriage Index (http://www.ilsos.gov/isavital/marriagesrch.jsp) here is their marriage record.

According to his 1935 death record, Ben was born 9 Apr 1857 in Sölvesborg.  But he was probably born in Mjällby according to this Emibas CD record.

There is an 1880 census record that might be him: Benjamin Anderson born about 1856 in Sweden living in Mount Pleasant, Whiteside County, Illinois.
 
This is Bengta/Bessie's date of death from a transcription of gravestones at Grove Hill Cemetery, Whiteside County (http://genealogytrails.com/ill/whiteside/cemgrovehilla.html).

David, if you haven't already obtained it, you can download Olaf's death certificate at https://www.cookcountygenealogy.com/, which is the website of the Cook County Clerk's Office.  You'll have to register and there's a $17 fee for each certificate.  It's possible his parents' names will be listed even though that information wasn't in the index records for him at Ancestry.com and familysearch.org.

Olof was the son of Ola Nilsson and Karna Jönsdotter.  Ola Nilsson died 4 Aug 1895 in Mjällby and in his Bouppteckning (estate inventory: Listers häradsrätt FII:42 (1894-1895) Bild 5350 / sid 533) it was stated that his son Olof was in Morison, Ill., Nord Amerika.  Incidentally, Olof had a brother Per born 2 Mar 1873 and a sister Bengta born 18 Aug 1865 who both were living in Morrison in 1895 according to the Bouppteckning.  Bengta was married to A. B. Anderson.

David, the death record for the Olof Olson who died in Chicago in 1940 indicated that his father was Peter O. Olson and gave his mother's name as Elna Orion, which is equivalent to Örjan.  While Peter Olson is a fairly common name, Örjan is not so common, and it appears clear that the mother in the 1870 and 1880 census is Elna Örjansdotter who emigrated in 1865 with her husband and children.  Also the headstone for Elna/Ellen indicated her husband was named Peter O. Olson.  Therefore it is likely that the Olof Olson you found in the 1870 and 1880 census is the one who died in 1940 rather than your ancestor.

Hi David, this looks like it might be your family from the Emibas CD, except your ancestor Olaf is missing.  Perhaps he was born in May 1865 while the family was en route?  Although  the Emibas CD lists Per Olsson's occupation as Torpare (crofter or tenant farmer), the Household Examination record looks like it says Torpare fra Skrädd, I'm not sure about the middle word but the last one is definitely an abbreviation of Skräddare or tailor.

Hi Barbara, in case you did not notice: Tångeråsa A1:2 (1758-1795) Image 22/page 21 under the 1767 column, the word död was written for Melcher Nilsson.  He died 19 Jun 1767 [Tångeråsa C:2 (1759-1830) Bild 123 / sid 118].  The same is also written (though harder to read) under the 1783 column for Lars Månsson and Brita Melchersdotter.  Lars died 26 Jul 1782 [Tångeråsa C:2 (1759-1830) Bild 125 / sid 120] and you'll find his wife Brita's death record on the same page, she died 3 Mar 1783.

One more puzzle piece suggesting that you have found the correct Brita:  her mother died 17 Jan 1820 [Tångeråsa C:2 (1759-1830) Bild 142 / sid 137].  Brita Larsdotter's Bouppteckning [Edsbergs häradsrätt FIIa:13 (1819-1823) Bild 137 / sid 132] lists her surviving family including Dottern Brita Husar Borgströms Enka i Skagershult 30 år.

Hi again Adham, in case you weren't aware, the mother was never present during the baptism ceremony and the woman who held the baby usually was a close relation or family friend.  So Elizabeth Wiker and her children Jonas Conrad and Hedvig Elizabeth (assuming she was Elizabeth's daughter) may have been related to Martin Pihl or Sophia Dorothea Amilia Westphal.  Also, looking over the record again it looks more likely that 7 p. m. was the time of day when the child was born, most of the other records from that register have either f. m. (a. m.) or p. m. right after the date of birth so I was incorrect in suggesting it referred to a date in the prior month.

Hi Gary, that Dec 1885 date for your ancestor was the date when he went to the parish priest to tell him that he was moving out of the parish.  During that era it usually took about 2 weeks to make the trip once the individual started his journey.  My grandmother's brother went to his priest in southern Sweden on 10 Jan 1893, left Copenhagen on 1 Feb 1893, and arrived in New York on 16 Feb 1893.  So it is possible that your ancestor might not have emigrated immediately after going to see the priest.  Have you checked his naturalization records such as his Petition for Naturalization, those documents sometimes listed the date when they arrived in the US as well as the boat?
 
Your ancestor did receive a document from the priest, called a Flyttningsbevis or Flyttningsbetyg. The purpose of the document was to provide information about the individual to the priest in the parish to which he was moving, so when someone emigrated it was often instead kept by the individual.  You can see an example from 1888 in a document published by the Swedish Information Service of the Consulate General of Sweden in New York at http://www.swedenabroad.com/SelectImage/15063/tracingyourswedishancestry.pdf.  Incidentally, Arkivdigital (a service that offers subscription access to digitized Swedish records) is offering free access to their service this weekend: http://www.arkivdigital.net/products/adonline/try-for-free/?utm_source=newslette r-150317-eng&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newsletter.

65
Hi Gary, there probably wouldn't be a record of that trip in the Swedish parish records since your great-grandmother likely wouldn't have reported it to the parish priest if she wasn't  permanently moving to the United States.  Instead you might be able to find a US port passenger manifest or border crossing record, though I've looked some and haven't been able to find any that look like it could be her.  This might be because her name was mistranscribed by the indexer.  My great-grandfather Måns Jönsson came to the US in 1905 to visit my grandmother and her two sisters but the passenger manifest was tricky to find since he was travelling under the surname Nelson (all of his children who came to the US used that surname since Månsson was too difficult for Americans to pronounce) and the indexer misread his first name as Maris.

Hi Valery, in 1884 Severin moved from Snöstorp to Enslöv {source: Enslöv AI:12 (1881-1898) Image 154/Page 154), where he is listed as Sjöf.[arare] or seafarer.  In 1885 he moves back to his family in Snöstorp (source: Snöstorp AI:7 (1881-1885) Image 243/Page 253) where he is listed as sjöman or seaman.  In 1896 as John Bentley stated, he is moved from Snöstorp #7 to Särskilde Förteckningen (source: Snöstorp AI:9 (1891-1899) Image 467/Page 528), which means that the parish priest knew that he was no longer living with his family but did not know where he was living.  Eventually the priest learned in 1897 that he had moved to Kamchatka.  There was a similar situation for my grandfather.  Like your ancestor, my grandfather never told the parish priest that he was going to emigrate so he is listed with his family in the registers ending in 1900 even though he was already in the United States and married to my grandmother.

Hi Eva, glad to help!  I will send you an email with the 1930 and 1940 census records for Artur and his family, since at least one of his sons might still be living.

78
Hi Eva, according to Högby AI:10A 1881-1894, Page 199, Elvira Ingeborg and her mother originally emigrated to the United States on 23 Oct 1889.  Also, according to the 1910 US Census Elvira Ingeborg had given birth to 9 children and only 4 were still living, which would include Arthur Valfrid and his three younger half-siblings.  The other 5 who were deceased before 1910 probably included Hildur and Sallie, along with twins Hedvig born 27 Aug 1895 in Högby (who died the same day) and Linnea (who died the following day 28 Aug 1895).

79
Hi Eva, this appears to be Elvira and Arthur in the 1910 US census.  Elvira has been married for 7 years and has given birth to 9 children, 4 of whom were still living at that time.  The 3 youngest were all born in New York.

Hi Kristján, I think you found the correct marriage record since it states that Søren was born in Udbyneder Parish, which is in Randers Amt.  That partially matches with the 1880 census record stating he was born in Randers Amt and while the parish name looks something like Orgrens, I cannot find any parish name remotely resembling that in Randers Amt (Agri is closest).  Also the August 1875 birth record for Magnus (Maribo Fuglse Krønge Krønge 1870-1891 opslag 10) states that Lovisa was 30 years old, which matches the birth date in April of 1845.

85
Hi Kristjan, you can find the Danish church records at the same site that has the census records, just change Folketællinger to  Kirkebøger.  They have moving in records for Krønge Parish, unfortunately the most recent are from 1868 so none are available for the time period immediately before the birth of their first child.  As Lisbeth suggested, it would be helpful to find out where and when they married, since the marriage records often include information such as birth dates, birth locations, and even sometimes the parents' names.  I checked the marriage records for Krønge Parish from 1867 through 1875 and they were not married there.
 
I found the family in the 1890 census for Krønge Parish and unfortunately Lovisa's birth location is listed only as Sverrig.  I also looked through the 1901 census and did not find them at all -- if you know to where Lovisa moved, we could also look there.

86
Hi Lisbeth, at the census start page, select 1880 from the year (Årgang) drop-down menu, select Landsogn from the Stedbetegnelse drop-down menu, and select Krønge from the Sogn drop-down menu.  Click on Krønge at the bottom right-hand side of the screen and you may then be asked to save a file called ViewImage.jnlp.  When you open that file in your browser, Java should load and a display window will open for the census images.

87
Hi Kristjan, you can find an image of the 1880 Danish census here, the family is found on opslag 9.
http://www.sa.dk/content/dk/ao-forside/find_folketallinger#
 
Lovisa's birth place looks to me like Osterlovs, possibly Österslöv, Kristianstads Län.

Hi James, there is a Johan Alfred Andersson who was born 14 Jun 1849 in Hjärtum, his parents were Anders Andersson and Olena Carlsdotter Wallström (source:  Hjärtum C:5 (1828-1869) Bild 106 / sid 201).  Anders (born 8 Oct 1819 died 31 Aug 1866 Hjärtum) and Olena (born 3 Sep 1817) lived at Nedra Hagen, Hjärtum and they had the following other children, all born in Hjärtum:  Albertina born 29 Sep 1841; Anders born 13 May 1844 died 7 Feb 1866 Hjärtum; Carl Magnus born 6 Feb 1846; Axel Reinhold born 16 Jul 1852 (possibly this was the g/uncle Alex who visited your family); Fredrika born 18 Aug 1855; Augusta 2 Feb 1857; and Hilda Charlotta born 7 Jul 1861 (sources:  Hjärtum AI:32 (1845-1850) Bild 41 / sid 69; Hjärtum AI:33 (1850-1855) Bild 52 / sid 87; Hjärtum AI:34 (1855-1860) Bild 48 / sid 84; Hjärtum AI:35 (1860-1862) Bild 17 / sid 23a; Hjärtum AI:36 (1862-1866) Bild 38 / sid 31; Hjärtum AI:37 (1866-1873) Bild 42 / sid 35).
 
Johan Alfred was married to Paulina Mattiasdotter born 10 Jun 1855 on 28 Oct 1877 Göteborgs Domkyrkoförsamling (source: Göteborgs Domkyrkoförsamling E:10 (1870-1877) Bild 239).  Their daughter Hedvig Alfrida was born 20 Jan 1880 Göteborgs Domkyrkoförsamling (source: Göteborgs Domkyrkoförsamling C:14 (1878-1880) Bild 195).
 
Paulina with her three daughters Selma, Hedvig, and Olga emigrated as you noted on 25 Aug 1882 from Göteborg.

Hej Marianne, vid findagrave.com jag tror att det finns ett inlägg för Emil Anderson som du hittade i Chicago. Hans dödsattest är det också och det står han föddes 4 juni 1867 i Värmland och hans far hette Anders Hultquist.

Oops, that should be born 1820 and 9 Jan 1822, sorry for the error!

Hi Scott, there is a Sven Anders Viktor Svensson on the Emibas CD who emigrated in 1869, born in Kalmar Län, and his birth date is just one day off of the date from the tombstone.
 
Post 322146
Svensson, Sven Anders Viktor
Dräng (unmarried man)
b. 3/14/1845 in Misterhult, Kalmar län (Småland)
Emigrated 6/25/1869
from Simpevarp, Misterhult, Kalmar län (Småland) to Nordamerika
Source: Household Examination Roll, p. 74
Emibas migration file ID: Misterhult H 1869 074
 
His father was Sven Peter Svensson (born 1720 in Misterhult) and his mother was Greta Lisa Nilsdotter (born 9 Jan 1722 in Misterhult) (Source: Misterhult AI:8c (1861-1869) Bild 81 / sid 74) but they never came to the US.  Lisa Greta died 4 Dec 1901 in Misterhult and Sven Peter died there as well 3 Oct 1908.
 
Misterhult AI:10b (1869-1876) Bild 57 / sid 54

So this sounds like it could be your man unless you're certain that his parents emigrated to the US.

Hi Roger, about the 1930 census record and the children's father's birth place, I only can guess that the Stahl family gave the wrong country, maybe they knew Carl was Scandinavian but not which country he came from.  Also I could not find any online index of deaths for Wisconsin for 1926 to 1930 so do not know when Dorothy died.  This seems to be Dorothy in 1920 though, before their marriage.

Records available at Ancestry after 1940 are varied by state, for Wisconsin there are indexes for marriages from 1973-1997 and for deaths from 1959 to 1997.  Other possible places to look are the public records indexes found under Schools, Directories and Church Lists.  There also are city directories that sometimes are helpful, but I do not seen any for Hiles, Wisconsin (that is where Carl and Dorothy lived at the time of their marriage according to the marriage record).

Hi Kathryn, I think you've definitely found Jonas and Maria in Sjöberga, there certainly are a lot of errors in these church records that would excuse Jonas' wrong birth year.  And maybe Anna Cajsa is not listed because they moved to Värna before the priest got around to adding her into the record.  In any case as you've noted this places the couple in the location where Anna Cajsa was listed as being born.  
 
I have a family in my tree that named one son Per and another Peter, but both were eventually called Peter.  Also there is one with two daughters born nine years apart who were both named Botel even though the first one (my ancestor) was still living when the second one wsa born.  So it is possible that the child who was baptised Jöns eventually had the name Jonas even though he had a brother with the same name.
 
Here is Maria Ericsdotter as she moved around Värna after her husband's death in case you haven't already found these, you'll see there are also many errors such as Maria's place of birth changes from Klockricke to Örtomta beginning in 1816, and the year that Maria became a widow has increased by 10 years.
 
AI:2 1812-1815 bild 85/sid 157 Torp Wintergarten
AI:3 1816-1820 sid 140 Andersbo; 1820 moved to Kolbotten bild 70/sid 124

AI:6 1832-1838 bild 9/sid 1 Fattigstugan
 
This is probably Jonas' father's death:
Björsäter C:2 1720-1788 bild 167/sid 327:  21 Apr 1785 Torparen Jonas Jönsson av Lungsot, Sjövalla, 51 years old
 
And probably his mother:
Björsäter AI:1 1792-1795 bild 1401/sid 259 Sjövalla:  enkan Catharina Olofsdotter born 1730 in Björsäter
 
And probably their marriage:
Björsäter C:2 1720-1788 bild 199/sid 231 11 Oct 1761 drängen och torparen Jonas Jönsson Sjövalla, enkan hustru Catharina Olofsdotter Mis?

102
Magnus, I am very happy you were able to find the information in the muster role, I am not very experienced with those records so I am glad someone else looked at them.
 
Kathryn, I found Maria Ericsdotter's death record in Värna in 1833, I left my notes at home so will need to post the citations later.  Following her back she remained in Värna after Jonas' death and it turns out that her daughter Maria died young in the early 1820's.  The household examination records indicate she had lungsot/tuberculosis but the cause of death in the death book is diarrhea.
 
A possible theory about the Samuelsdotter/Ericsdotter error, the child's mother was never actually present at the baptism so maybe Jonas had the wrong patrynomic wrong for his wife and none of her family members were present to correct it.  He was already deceased by the time his son Anders was baptized so this could account for why the correct name is listed in Anders' birth/baptism record.  And one more piece of circumstantial evidence:  Anna Cajsa's name is the combined names of Maria Ericsdotter's mother (Anna) and Jonas Jonsson's mother (Cajsa is a variation of Catharina).

103
Hi Kathryn, I looked through the generalmönsterulla (military rolls, not sure I spelled that correctly) for Tjust Company of the Andra livgrenadjärregementet on SVAR, they do not have every year but there is one soldier enscripted from Ytterby.  For 1778, 1781, and 1785 that soldier was Anders Ytterman, 1791 it was Carl Ytterman, and 1793 the post was vacant because Carl Ytterman died 22 Apr 1793.  The next roll is for 1799 and the post is also vacant, it is hard to read but I think it states it was assigned to a different rote.  So unfortunately I found nothing about Jonas Ytterman.
 
Here are a few more puzzle pieces, you maybe will need to decide if there's enough evidence to conclude that this is the correct family.  I am inclined to be less concerned about Jonas' changing surname and occupation than Maria/Maja's patrynomic of Ericsdotter vs. Samuelsdotter, but maybe the fact that Samuelsdotter is listed in the birth records for both daughters is enough proof.
 
There is a bouppteckning for Jonas Jonsson, Bankekinds Härad (FII:11 1800-1807, bild 1615/sida 3195) written 9 Dec 1805, it states he died 3 ejusdum (same month).  It states barnens faderbroder (the brother of the children's father) was Lars Jonsson, torparen from Hemsjö, Björsäter.  Household exam for Björsäter AI:2 1800-1805 bild 31/sida 49 lists Lars Jonsson who was born 1762 in the same parish, he also sometimes used the surname Björling.  Lars was born 21 Oct 1762 in Sjövalla, Björsäter to parents Jonas Jonsson and Catharina Olufsdotter.  They also had a son Jöns (interchangeable with Jonas) born 1 May 1765.
 
In the Örtomta Parish church book C:3 1790-1830 bild 124/sida 225 is found a marriage on 7 Oct 1798: dräng Jonas Jonsson från Ytterby i Värna och pigan Maja Ericsdotter, Hageby.  Maja/Maria was born 1771 in Klockricke according to the Örtomta household exams A:15 1792-1798 bild 28/sida 42 and AI:6 1798-1805 bild 21/sida 28.  I think her actual birthdate was 11 Nov 1870 (Klockricke C:1 1688-1778 bild 141/sida 273), she was the daughter of Eric Andersson and Anna Benctsdotter from Tröstorp.  Klockricke household exam AI:2 1770-1780 bild 26, sida 37.
 
At Disbyt (a database of user-submitted Swedish family trees) there is one for Jonas Ytterman, Maria Samuelsdotter, and their daughter Anna Cajsa that was submitted in 2008, though there is no information there for them that you do not already have.  Let me know if you would like that individual's contact information, I will need to send it to you privately though.

104
Hi Kathryn, you are wise to question the inconsistencies, I agree they are a bit troubling and I hope others will share their opinions as well.  Like you, I thought maybe Maria Samuelsdotter died after daughter Maria's birth but there is no record of her death in Värna, as you found.  I looked in some of the surrounding parishes unsuccessfully with the hopes of finding a marriage record before 1799 and also tried following Maria forward from her birth in Klockricke but also was unsuccessful, assuming I found the right family, which is crossed out in the household exam record with no indication of where they went.  
 
As for Jonas' surname, I have an ancestor who stopped using the surname Kompan when he was discharged from being a Båtsman and instead started using his patrynomic of Persson on becoming a Torpare.  This is only conjecture, but perhaps Jonas kept his military surname of Ytterman when he became a brick maker since he might have been considered a craftsman, and started using his patrynomic when he began crofting.  I am guessing from your previous posts that the only records you have for Jonas are Anna Cajsa's birth record and the one from the Central Soldiers Register?

105
Hej Marianne, jag kommer e-post de två bilderna till dig, de är för stora för att posta här..
 
Även jag gjorde skriver i mars till Alden Eriksons ättling men tyvärr fick jag inget svar.

106
Hi Kathryn, I think this might be your Anna Cajsa and her family living at Rabbantorp, Värna parish:  Värna AI:1 (1802-1810) Bild 81 / sid 149.  Jonas is now using his patrynomic of Jönsson and he has become a torpare, according to the birth record of their daughter Maria: Värna C:2 (1797-1861) Bild 22 / sid 35. His wife is listed as Maja Ericsdotter in the household examination record, but Maria's birth record gives her name as Maria Samuelsdotter.  The family is next found at Norrberga: Värna AI:2 (1812-1815) Bild 45 / sid 77, Jonas has died sometime before the birth of their son Anders (13 Dec 1805) but there's a gap in the death records from Värna from the end of July 1805 through December 1805.  You'll also see that Anna Cajsa now has the incorrect birth date of 28 Sept 1799 that seems to have stayed with her for the rest of her life.

107
Yes, I am glad that all of the puzzle pieces fit together.  In case you don't already have it, here is your great great grandparents family's emigration from the Emibas CD.

Also emigrating with him were Kjersti (though spelled Kerstin), daughters Emma and Ida Maria, and son Johan August.

Although Nils and Kjersti were not married when they witnessed Elna's baptism, they did marry the following year, 12 Mar 1862 (Källs-Nöbbelöv EI:1 (1862-1894) Bild 8/sid 2).  Kjersti and Boel Persdotter were sisters, their parents were Per Hansson and Gunilla Olsdotter born 17 Sep 1799 in Källs-Nöbbelöv (Källs-Nöbbelöv AI:5 (1850-1858) Bild 109/sid 102, Källs-Nöbbelöv CI:2 (1822-1861) Bild 19, and Källs-Nöbbelöv CI:2 (1822-1861) Bild 13).

Hi Debbie, Pehr Lindqvist's death record is found in at Helsingborgs stadsförsamling FI:6 (1861-1874) Bild/Image 334.  Under cause of death it states afkänd på lifert genom hängning, I am not sure if I transcribed that correctly and if it means he committed suicide?  The family in 1874 is living in Helsinbrogs stads at Kärnen #3, Helsingborgs stadsförsamling AI:56 (1869-1874) Bild 297 / sid/page 339 where we see Peter had a brother Sven Peter born 29 Dec 1864 and a sister Elna born 7 Dec 1861, both in Landskrona.  Maybe this is why Peter added Carl/Charles to his name, to differentiate from his brother?  Do you know if he had any siblings who also emigrated to the US?
 
The widow Boel Pehrsdotter is still living at 1 John Eriksson Helsingborgs stadsförsamling AIIa:6 (1894-1900) Bild 3240 / sid 2552, and Helsingborgs stadsförsamling AIIa:31 (1900-1907) Bild 80 / sid 4403.  She died there on 25 May 1905 (Helsingborgs stadsförsamling FI:10 (1902-1906) Bild 1350 / sid 132), cause of death marasmus senilis.  You might want to consider ordering her bouppteckning/estate inventory from the Landsarkivet in Lund because if there is one on file, it may list her surviving children and state where they live.

111
Kristina, thank you for correcting my error!

112
Hi Barry, I think the book you looked at in ArkivDigital is the original parish birth and baptism book whereas the record on Ancestry.com is the SCB Extract.  You can tell if it's an SCB Extract because the Swedish word Utdrag (meaning extract) is the first word in the heading on each page.  See page 121 in Cradles in Sweden for more explanation but basically starting in 1860 each parish filled out extract forms for all of the births, deaths, and marriages during the year and these were sent in to the central church.  That's why the columns are different since there were different forms that were used for the parish books and the extracts, though as you noted the basic information in each is the same.  Also usually you'll find that one person filled out the extract forms for a given year while several different priests made entries in the parish book.

Genline records are on Ancestry in the Sweden, Church Records, 1500-1940 birth/marriage/death collection, you need to have the World subscription to access it though.

114
Hi Barry, one word of caution about Your Swedish Roots and Cradled in Sweden, both were written before Arkiv Digital was available and also before GenLine was assimilated by Ancestry.com, so you should keep that in mind when they refer to available web resources for doing research.  Incidentally, Arkiv Digital is having a summer special now of $41 for a subscription that lasts through August 25th.  http://www.arkivdigital.net/products/adonline/subscriptions
 
One thought about the name of Selma's mother on her marriage record, I wonder if maybe she said Elina which is a variant of Lena, and the person filling out the marriage license misheard and thought it was Eliza?

115
Hi Barry, about Your Swedish Roots versus Cradled in Sweden, if I remember correctly (I'm not at home now so don't have them in front of me) Your Swedish Roots focuses mainly on household examination, birth, marriage, and death records while Cradled in Sweden also covers other records like tax records, estate records, and military records.  Cradled in Sweden also has some good resources such as a tool for calculating dates from feast days (you probably haven't encountered those yet, they're mostly in the older records from 18th century and earlier) and an alphabetical list of all the parishes that gives their county, province and district.  
 
Like you I'm also an American, one-half 2nd generation -- my father's parents emigrated from Blekinge and Skåne to Massachusetts in the 1890's.

116
Barry, you might want to get the book Your Swedish Roots by Per Clemensson and Kjell Andersson, it is a pretty good guide with lots of illustrations for the beginner about how to navigate Swedish parish records.  Cradled in Sweden by Carl-Erik Johansson is also very good though much more detailed.  
 
The postings done about your great-grandfather have been very interesting to me since they show how the smallest details from an old letter can help to solve the puzzle about an ancestor's origins.

Hi Barry, the record from 1915-30 that Olle found showed that Karl August Magnusson (born 20 Apr 1837) died 25 Feb 1922 in Lyse Parish and his wife Brita Stina Mattiasdotter (born 10 Oct 1840) died there as well on 19 Feb 1923.  You can request their bouppteckning (estate records) online from the State Archive at http://www.riksarkivet.se/default.aspx?id=17462, you will want the Dödsbodelägarna/första sidan/sidorna visar dödsbodelägare or first page, which usually lists all of the deceased's children. Since your great-grandfather died in 1919 it might indicate they had a son in America who was deceased and list his heirs, thereby giving you some confirmation despite the change in name.  The State Archive webpage is in Swedish but you can open a page in Google and under More select Translate to copy/paste in and get (sometimes rough) translations of the Swedish words.  Fields with an * (asterisk) must be filled in, also there is a statement you must accept at the beginning about fees for research, sometimes though if the individual is listed in their index they will e-mail an image of the first page to you without any charge.

120
Here is the family Olle found from the 1880 census.
 
Karl August Magnusson, b. 1837 in Väne-Ryr Älvsborgs län, Smed
Britta Stina Mathiasdotter, b. 1840 in Brålanda Älvsborgs län
Johan Alfred, b. 1865 in Bäve Göteborgs- och Bohuslän
Alma Ottilia, b. 1870 in Bäve Göteborgs- och Bohuslän
Anton Emanuel, b. 1873 in Bäve Göteborgs- och Bohuslän
Amandus Teodor, b. 1876 in Väne-Ryr Älvsborgs län
 
They also had a son born 26 May 1862 but his name was Johan Anton, so maybe this is not the right family.

121
Hi again, I figured that might have been a long shot due to the wrong birth month, but here's a better match, almost all of the puzzle pieces fit except he would have added Carl/Charles to his name after arrival in the US.  I'll start on this side of the pond:  SS Catalonia arrived 29 May 1893 in Boston, on board were Peter Lindquist 25 years and 11 months (10 years too young, see below that he was actually 35 years and 11 months) and Anna Lindquist 26 years and 3 months; their last residence was Helsingborg and their destination is E. Scandia.  On another page of the manifest it says that's in Kansas and I think maybe the person writing the manifest misunderstood where they were going, there is an East Candia in New Hampshire that's about 15 miles from Manchester, where their daughter Bodil was born the following year.

122
Hi Debbie, I believe you're correct that the marriage found by Eva is not your Carl and Anna.  Looking at the church record it seems that Carl's surname is actually Sundquist, not Lundquist, and they are probably the same couple who arrived in the US 15 May 1893 on the ship Arizona.  So if I'm correct then your Carl and Anna are not from Grythyttan.
 
There are a number of birth/death records at www.Familysearch.org for your Carl and Anna's children that verify their mother's maiden name was Anderson, and the New Hampshire birth record for their oldest child Bodil Tregierd (middle name Ingierd mistranscribed by the indexer) born 10 Sept 1894 in Manchester NH gives her father's name as Charles Peter Lindquist.  I did a search of the 1890 census at SVAR looking for year of birth 1857, first name beginning Karl P or Carl P, and surname beginning Lind, and the following man is the only possible match:  Carl Petter Lindqvist born 30 Jul 1857 in Nysund, Örebrö Län.  In Valstad AI:17 (1879-1889) image 146/page 137 he's at Hårdaholm, Suntak Parish, Skaraborgs Län (this parish's records are included in the household exam volumes for Valstad 1879-1889 and Kimbo 1890-99).  He was married 24 Nov 1884 to Maria Gustava Elisabet Brisman, born 6 Mar 1850 in Suntak, and she died 11 Dec 1888 in Suntak.  They had no children during their short marriage and in the comments column it states Lindqvist rymd till America 1886, vistas på okänd ort.  In Kimbo AI:10 (1890-1899) image 203 page 188 he was moved as of 1897 to page 227, Förteckning på obefintliga for Suntaks parish.  In Suntak AIIa.1 (1900-1910) image 98 he is still in the obefintliga bok and it states uppgifves vistas i Amerika.  
 
If you know when he (and Anna) died, you can go to the Massachusetts Registry of Vital Records and Statistics in Dorchester to look up their death certificates to maybe find their birth dates and more specific info about their places of birth.  If you're not in the area there's a service that will do it for you though for a fee.

You can request a copy of that marriage record at http://www.nyc.gov/html/records/html/vitalrecords/marriage.shtml, the cost probably is $15 US plus $7 US shipping and handling.  The request can be submitted online since you have the certificate number (26028) provided by Mats but a credit card is needed.

Here is the World War II draft registration card for Simon Johnson, address 2030 East 117th Street, Bronx, New York.  The person who will always know his address was Aurora Johnson at the same address.  His employer was the Master Rule Company.
 
Name:    Simon Fredrick Johnson
Birth Date:    11 Jul 1890
Birth Place:    Hultsfred, Sweden
Residence:    Bx [Bronx], New York
Race:    White  
 
There also is a Passport Application at Ancestry.com for Simon from April of 1921, he was traveling for one month to Sweden to visit his parents (father Nels Erick Johanson).  His residence at that time was Virginia, Minnesota and his occupation was diamond drill runner.

125
There are marriage records for two of the children at Familysearch.org (Edwin on 27 Sep 1914 https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FFRY-XDY and Helen on 20 Sep 1915 https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XVPW-T5N) that list their mother's maiden name as Anderson.  Though not definite proof especially given that Anderson is even more common than Berg, at least there is a little more supporting evidence.

126
This family possibly could be them if Olof changed his first name to Alfred after arriving in the US.  The index lists his birth month and year as Jan 1869 but Jun is easily misread as Jan.  Amelia's birth month and year match your Emelia's of Apr 1867 and all of the children were born in New York.  Alfred's occupation is boiler maker.

Hej Marianne, är det svårt att veta säkert utan att mer bevis som Almas dödsattest om det anges hennes födelsedatum, men tyvärr vet vi inte exakt när och var de dog. Det kan finnas viss information i Emils naturalisation program, men du måste gå personligen till staten arkivet för att få en kopia. Det är tjänster som kommer att göra forskningen för dig, men dessa är dyra så förmodligen inte att rekommendera, eftersom den information som kanske inte vara till hjälp. Om du vill men jag kan försöka kontakta Alden Eriksons ättling att ta reda på om han har några uppgifter om familjen.

Hej Marianne, om detta är rätt Alma, kan du vara intresserad att hon hade en bror Johan Adolf Eriksson (född 1 Nov 1870) som också gifte sig i Waltham, Massachusetts 23 Nov 1898 till Florence Farnum. De hade en son Alden Farnum Erikson föddes 23 Nov 1899, och denna person på Ancestry.com verkar vara Aldens son.

Lynda, since you said in another post that you are researching the Ekstrand family, I believe this is your Edward Hylander in 1900 with his wife Olga.  Plus an Illinois birth record to show that Olga's maiden name was Ekstrand.

Here is the death record for Matilda Hylander's daughter Lillie.  The father's name was August Hylander, perhaps he was a brother of Edward Louis Hylander's father, since both families lived in Indiana and had sons named Edward?

Hi Debbie, the SS Pavonia docked in Boston on 2 April 1888, there are several Carl Anderson's who were on board but I don't see any who were the correct age, though it's possible he might have told them he was older than 16. The ship's manifest doesn't give very much information, just the name, age, country of citizenship, occupation, and destination in the US.

They can be found before emigrating at SE/LLA/13155 Hjärsås AI:4 (1886-1894)  Image 220 Page 306 (gid 1661.5.19100).  Anna was born 5 Jan 1866 in Örkened, her parents were Karl Jönsson and Hanna Niklasdotter.  You'll see Hanna at the top of the page, born 17 Feb 1828 in Örkened and she also emigrates to North America the same day that Anna and Alma leave (19 Aug 1892), it says in the margin that Hanna is going to join her husband farmer Karl Jönsson.  Alma was born 9 Feb 1889 in Hjärsås.  Anna also has another illegitimate daughter named Hilda born 21 Feb 1891 in Hjärsås but she died there 13 May 1892.

Thanks Lori, I myself have received a great deal of help, especially on this board, so I'm glad I return the favor.

160
Hej, Lori!  Incidentally sid means page and bild means photo, so in AD-Online, Bild 91/sid 173 means the 91st photo or image in the series and the 173rd page in the book.
 
Nils father's name was Jacob Färdig, he was a Ryttare (a mounted soldier).  The mother's name was Karin Håkansdotter.  You were correct that the 1790-1799 book lists Nils' date of birth as 9 Aug 1796, but if you look at the next book (A1:4 Kävsjö 1800-1809 Bild 104/sid 199) his birth date here is 5 Aug 1796.  Unfortunately there do not seem to be any birth books for the parish for that year (maybe they were destroyed in a fire?) so you won't be able to verify the correct date, my guess is that the 9 Aug date was correct and 9 was misread as 5 when the priest copied over the new book for 1800.
 
The 1800 book also says the family moved in 1810 to Åsenhöga parish, Jönköpings Län but they are still in Kävsjö in the 1810-1814 book (A1:5, Bild 47/sid 41) at the village of Beckaryd, Jacob here is now listed with the title backstugan so he is no longer a soldier.  At least some of the family is crossed out, there's a word I don't recognize then Skomekaren i Åsenhöga or the shoemaker in Åsenhöga, so perhaps some or all of the family has moved there.

Eileen, the record Bo found for Lars Viktor Helsing states that he became a widower on 6/6/1927, which might be the date that Brita died.

Hi Lori, I think you're doing pretty good, especially for someone who's just started.  You're correct that Eva died 2 Dec 1845.  Her death record is on page 125 of the birth/marriage/deaths book for 1822-1860, it looks like the cause of death was förkylning but I don't know what that is.
 
The entries you found for them in the 1814-1830 household exam are from before their marriage.  Eva moved to Bäckaryd page 96 in 1826 from Mjugaryd Norregård (page 92) and you were correct that Nils moved to page 96 in 1828 from Gnosjö.  Both move in 1829 to Frälsebo, you'll find them on page 83 at the bottom of the page, now married and with son Anders.  If you look in the Kävsjö marriage book for 1829 you'll likely find their marriage date.  The entry you found for Nils on page 97 was actually an earlier entry, he moved there in 1822 from Slungsås (another village in Kävsjö) and moved out in 1824 to Mjug Ng which might be Mjugaryd Norregård.  
 
You were correct that Nils' birth date was written as 5 Aug 1796, in some of the records it also says his birth place was Kävsjö.  Eva's birth date may have been 23 or 26 Nov 1801 and her place of birth was Tostaryd, I'm not sure but that could be Tostared in Älvsborgs Län.  
 
In 1846 Nils and his children are moved from Uppebo to page 152, i socknen boende uten förvar och histämdt hemvist, I think that means in the parish but without a particular address.  In the far right column it says bor uti och eger backstugen Åkroken under Uppebo which I think means that he had lived at and owned the cottage called Åkroken in the village of Uppebo.  The family is moved back to page 152 without any date being given, Anders moves from here in 1849 to what looks like Källerå, which might be Källeryd.  Nils is moved back to the bottom of page 152 in 1849, underneath his name it says barnen se afven or the children see above. The son Carl Johan moves from here in 1849 to Slungsås (page 95) and in 1850 he moves to page 109, Mjugaryd Mellangård.
 
Nils, his 2 daughters, and son Lars Magnus are at the same place in the 1851-1855 book, on page 164.  Stina Cajsa moves in 1852 to page 27.  The other daughter Cajsa moves in 1854 to what looks like Kävsjö Vstrg, I couldn't find her but in the 1880 census this might be her, married and living with her family at Qvistbro parish in Örebrö Län.
Johan Emil Andersson, f. 1846 i Kvistbro Örebro län, Hemmansägare
Kajsa Nilsdotter, f. 1838 i Kävsjö Jönköpings län
Karl Johan, f. 1875 i Kvistbro Örebro län
Alma Karolina, f. 1877 i Kvistbro Örebro län
Frans Emil, f. 1879 i Kvistbro Örebro län

Hi Lori, another thing to try is to look for the household examination record for Kävsjö from around his birth year 1829, and find the village of Bäckeryd to locate Anders and his family, then follow them forward from there.  You'll probably want to do this anyways so you can find out more about his father Nils and mother Eva and what happened to them.
 
best regards,

Hi Lori!  You did nothing wrong, it turns out that some of the moving records for Angerdshestra are in the books for Bottnaryd parish, along with a couple of other parishes.  Unfortunately, I couldn't find Anders in the moving out logs for 1854-1856.  But...
 
In the moving records for Åker, there is a flyttningsbevis (moving certificate) for Anders (before he moved, he went to the parish priest in Angerdshestra and was given a document that tells the priest in his new parish his date of birth, ability to read, among other things).  It's at GID 231.27.4900 (the reverse side of the paper is on the next page) and it's very difficult to read, but at least says that he in 1852 he moved in to Mulseryd parish.  Mulseryd is one of the other parishes in that book for Bottnaryd (in/utflyttningslängd 1850-1860), and on page 25 or GID 250.10.69300 he is listed as having moved to page 251 in Mulseryd (couldn't find him there though) from Stenshult, which seems to be short for Stengårdshult.
 
On page 10 of the 1851-1864 utflyttingslängd for Stengårdshult, Anders Nilss Ekman is #48 (GID 1135.10.6600), moving from Socknens Slut in Stengårdshult to Mulseryd.  The good news here is that his birth date is listed as 29 Jun 1829, so the birth record found earlier really was him, and apparently sometime between moving to Mulseryd in 1852 and moving to Åker in 1855, a priest wrote the wrong birth month and day for him.
 
In the Stengårdshult household examination record for 1840-54, he is listed on Page 249 (GID 1135.6.15800) at Wid Socknen called På Socknen in the place register, I think that means he didn't have a specific address in the parish.  He is Anders Nilsson without any other surname, he moved out in 1852 to Mulseryd and he moved into the parish in 1851 from Vissafors (not sure if I'm reading that right, I can't find a parish by that name and the village with the most similar name in Stengårdshult is Åsafors, but I didn't find him there either.
 
MVH,
-Carl

Hi Lori!  The Genline reference you gave above for the Åker household examination record says that Aron's father Anders Nilsson Ekman was born 3/4 (3 Apr) 1829 in Käfsjö parish (modern spelling Kävsjö), Jönköpings Län.  The Kävsjö birth books (Kävsjö C:2 1822-1860 Page 35, GID 970.17.61800) only lists one Anders born in 1829 but on 29 Jun 1829 in Bäckaryd village, Kävsjö and his parents were Nils Jacobsson and Eva Carlsdotter.  You can find out if the date in the household examination record was written down incorrectly (a common occurrence) and this is the right Anders by following him backwards starting with the Åker household examination record.  On Page 232 it says that the family moved in 1857 from Page 64, Häradsjö. In the 1851-1856 household examination record there is a table of contents at the beginning that shows the ortregister (place register) is on page 347, there you will find the village of Haradsjö on page 308 (GID 231.14.92900) and Anders is there about 2/3rds of the way down on page 308.  (If he wasn't found on that page, you would just continue through the rest of the pages for the village till you found him.)  Under the Flyttningnar (moving) column it says he moved in there 1855 från (from) Angjerdhestra (modern spelling Angerdhestra), so now you need to look at the Flyttningslangd (moving book) or Utflyttningslangd (moving out book) for that parish, which is also in Jönköpings Län, to follow him further backwards.
 
I'd encourage you to look at the publications/books cited by Ingela, you should get a better understanding of the records and how to do the research from them.
 
Another source for the records is AD-Online (www.arkivdigital.se), which also requires a paid subscription.  The images are much clearer than Genline since they took color digital photos of the original books, but the menus are all in Swedish so the program takes some time to become familiar with it for the non-Swedish speaker.
 
Best regards,
Carl

Living at the same address in 1930 is a Carl Anderson (and his wife Anna) who might be his son, but it states he was born in Pennsylvania and was 29 years old, so maybe this is not him.  This is probably the son's World War I draft registration card from 1918, he was a bookkeeper at Corbin Cabinet Lock Company, and his nearest relative was Charles H. Anderson who lived at the same address, 17 Griswold Street in New Britain.  That also matches their address from the 1920 census.

In 1910 and 1920, Charles is an iron molder, in 1930 he is a janitor in a factory.  Daughter Hanna in 1910 does assorting work in a castings factory, perhaps the same one where her father worked.  Daughter Alma in 1910 is a time keeper in a factory that makes bolts and hinges and in 1920 it says she is a clerk in a hardware office.  Son Carl in 1920 is a laborer in a lock factory, and Gertrude works at a printing company (I am not sure what her specific occupation was, it looks like heurpopher.  Daughter Ellen in 1930 is a public school teacher.

Jag hittade de draft cards på Ancestry.com, jag ska försöka att bifoga dem här.
 
För levande släktingar, en dödsruna skulle vara bra, men jag har inte hittade någon av dessa personer.  Du kan också skicka ett efternamn styrelse (som på Ancestry.com eller rootsweb.com) men det är svårt eftersom det är en gemensamma efternamn.

It says infra in the 1871-75 register for both Calle and Olof, meaning they moved within the same village, and you will find both of them at the bottom of the same page except both are called Olsson.  Olof moves out from the 6/11 1874, I think it says S Ryd.  1876-1880 you will find Calle at page 351, GID 790.53.55800 at the same place living with his widowed mother, and 1881-1885 they are on page 350 (GID 790.49.3500).  Calle moves out from there 1/4 1882 to Norige/Norway.

Hej Majvor, Kerstins uppgifte är passet ansökan om Freds hustru Ruth. Det sägs att de gifte sig den 27 oktober 1917, Ruth föddes den 20 juli 1894 i Sundsvall, och dottern Ethel Marie föddes den 15 april 1922 i Mount Vernon, Washington. Det uppger också att Fred Olson kom till USA den 15 januari 1915 på Oscar II från Christiania, men detta är inte korrekt, det var faktiskt Ruth som var på det fartyget. Det kom 28 januari 1915 i New York och hennes namn var då Ruth Carolina Ericksson.  Ruth skrev om ansökan att hon och Ethel var att resa till Sverige för att besöka släktingar, på SS United States. De återvände på SS Fredrik VIII från Oslo, anländer till New York den 18 oktober 1925. Deras hem var 4730 37:e St SW i Seattle.
 
Jag har inte hittat någon information om deras dödsdag, men i Polk's Seattle City Directory för 1943-1944 är Fred K. Olson, drivrutin för Seattle Retail Lumber Company, hemadress 4730 37:e Ave. SW. Hans hustrus namn var Margaret, så antingen Ruth har dött eller att de skilt sig och han omgift.

He was on the SS Merion, sailing from Liverpool, England on 8 Mar 1902 to Boston.  The exact date of arrival is not written on the ship manifest (at least the 3 pages I looked at).  In the index at Ancestry.com his last name is mispelled as Wernclie but it is clearly Wernelius on the original document.  He is traveling with Hugo J. Larson, 21 years old, and their destination is Hugo's brother Gust. Larson in Brainerd.

Christopher Monett was born 10 Sep 1780, Södra Mellby (S. Mellby Kyrkobok 1779-1820, page 7, GID 1705.14.67600:  Husaren Carl Julius Monetts son Christopher i Mellby).
 
About eight years after the 1802 birth of his son Carl Andreas, Johan Anders Monett remarried (the mother of Carl Andreas maybe died?) 20 Sep 1810 in Södra Mellby to Chirstina Håkansdotter (born 8 Jan 1885 and died 8 Jan 1829, both in Södra Mellby).  They had a stillborn son 20 Sep 1810.  Johan Anders died 23 Sep 1829 in Södra Mellby.
 
Christina Monett died 14 Mar 1840 in Hjo Stads, Skaraborgs Län.  She married Hans Carlsten Steijn (born 4 May 1777, died 12 Aug 1811 in Södra Fågelås, Skaraborgs Län).  They had three sons:  Anders Julius (born 1802 in Hagelberg, Skaraborgs Län and died 1828 in Flistad, Skaraborgs Län);  Carl Jacob (born 1807 in Södra Fågelås);  and Johan Gustaf Fredrik (born 1810 in Södra Fågelås, died 1879 in Acklinga, Skaraborgs Län).  Anders Julius in 1823 married Hedvig Johansdotter Hasselqvist (born 1795 and died 1872, both in Södra Fågelås).  Carl Jacob married Maria Christina Nylander (born 1803 in Skara, Skaraborgs Län).  Johan Gustaf Fredrik married Christina Johansdotter (born 1811 in Varnhem, Skaraborgs Län).

Hi Sandy, I have subscriptions to both Ancestry and Genline, and I think you'll find that Genline is far more helpful as far as researching your family history in Sweden.  The only Swedish records currently on Ancestry are the emigration records from the Emigranten Popular CD and in my opinion Ancestry's search function is not very useful for this.  You may also find that the Genline subscription is not quite as expensive as you thought once you convert Swedish Krona to US dollars, which I think is about one-third.
 
If you haven't already, you might check out the books Your Swedish Roots by Per Clemmensson and Kjell Andersson, or Cradled in Sweden by Carl-Erik Johansson.  Your Swedish Roots will guide you step by step with how to research the parish records and is available  through Genline's site (under the Resources tab), and you can also find both on Amazon.com.

Many thanks, Ingela and Magnus!  I was researching an emigrant, but Ingela had it exactly right, he was from Krogstorp in Ivetofta parish -- Swan Peterson in the US, who was called Sven Persson in Sweden.  He was born 14 Mar 1864 in Ivetofta, his parents named Per Nilsson and Anna Mattsdotter.  Swan was the husband of my farmor's sister, Maria Månsson.

Many thanks, Bo.  Hmm, Karlskrona is a port city and näset translates as isthmus.  I'll post a query under that parish to see if anyone knows where that might be.  
 
I am hoping to locate this couple in the HFL to determine if the priest made an error when writing Bengta's patrynomic name, in which case this is the entry for Peter Petersson's wife Bengta Jönsdotter rather than Pehrsdotter.

Hi Maxine, in the Hannäs birth records (GID #52.13.89800 for GenLine) there is a Maja (interchangeable for Maria) who was born 4 Sep 1797 to parents Anders Persson and Maja Persdotter.  It doesn't say where Anders and Maja were from, only that the child was born in Nyttad (if I'm reading the text correctly), which perhaps is the village in Hannäs where they lived.

Bo and Eva --
 
Thank you again!

209
Thank you Eva!  I had seen records for Måns Josefsson Boglina and wondered if he might have been Per Boglina's father.  Would someone be able to translate for me their båtsman name Boglina?  Also befaren and obefaren?
 
Do you know if it is possible to correct the information on Anders Person Kompan (BB-G1-0238-1782), which states that he died in 1797?  This is cited to Erik Palmgren and it is understandable how he arrived at this date -- in the  husförhörslängd for Tving, Anders was last examined in April of 1797 and the word död is written directly after the month of the last examination.  However, he was still alive in 1799 as evidenced by the birth of his daughter Ingerd or Ingjer on 16 May 1799 (GID #1779.16.23400).  I believe Anders' actual date of death was 14 Dec 1799 (GID #1779.16.39700 -- written in vertically in the month column on page 567).  Incidentally I am curious that his cause of death was drowning although he was discharged from the båtsmankopani eight years prior.  He is listed only as Anders Persson here without his båtsman name so I guess that reflects his discharge years earlier.
 
Eva, I believe I read on the Blekinge Rötter webpage that you were instrumental in the creation of the Blekinge Båtsman Registry, and I would like to express my sincere gratitude for this.

Hey Scott, you need to check the Härad court records if it was a rural area or the city court records if urban;  since having sex out of marriage was a crime, there would be a court record after the child was born.  If you're lucky, the father will have admitted paternity in front of the court.  Here's a link to an article about court records.

You can order these on microfilm from a family history center, go to www.familysearch.org to find out if there's one near you.

212
Thank you again, Eva!

213
Jörgen and Eva:
 
Thank you for the information.  Cecilia Petersdotter also seems to have married a third time in 1874 to a retired farmer, Anders Nilsson, if I am reading the husförhörslängd correctly.  
 
Eva, I really appreciate the link for Anders Compan which confirms the birth date I found for him as well as giving me his mother's name.  It is also interesting to me that Anders had a brother who was about 14 years older than him.  May I assume that antagen means the date when he became a båtsman, and avsked is his discharge date?  Could someone also tell me what 238 Född i Småland means, would this be where båtsmankompaniet number 238 was founded?
 
Again, many thanks!

214
Jörgen!
 
Thank you very much for this information.  I had found Anders and Ingrid in Södra Slätafly/Torsås but lost their trail in 1862 -- they are crossed out in the husförhörslängd for Torsås 1861-1870 (p. 303) and under Flytatt it looks like it says f. 119 62 7/4 but I did not find them on page 119. With your information I was able to find them in the husförhörslängd for Rödeby 1871-1880 and I think this states that they moved in 1872 from Tr 627 -- a page number which unfortunately does not correspond with any of the Torsås husförhörslängd, but I would assume that this is when they moved from Torsås.
 
Have you done any additional research on Anders' family?  I am particularly interested in his grandfather, Anders Persson Compan, a båtsman from Tving/Augerum parish.  I recently found a document that revealed Anders had a sister named Erenguna Persdotter, and I subsequently concluded that Anders Compan's birth date was 23 Apr 1762 in Tving and his father was also a båtsman named Per Månsson Bäglund.

215
Christina!
 
Thank you, especially for the information on his move to Thorsås.  His brother Swen (my great grandfather) also moved there for a short time in 1859 and I will not be surprised if I find that he went to live with Anders.

216
I would appreciate very much if someone would look at GID #1623.73.89800 (Augerum household exam for 1852-57), and tell me to where Anders Petersson (9th person from the bottom, born in 1834/son of Peter Andersson and Brita Svensdotter) has moved?  It looks like to S N (maybe Södra N?) in either 1853 or 1855.
 
His sister Johanna listed two lines below moved in 1853 to Augerum #31 and I did find her with her new husband and children at GID #1623.73.92300;  but I am unable to find Anders in the Augerum household exam records.

Unfortunately I'm not finding anyone with a name close to Matheus Jonsson or Matheus Antonsson who is the correct age.  The only other Jonssons I found emigrating from V NY parrish are Anna K age 16 in 1894, and A A age 20 in 1888, neither of whom are in the above list of your family compiled by Ingela Martenius from the husförhörslängd.  
 
Since the husförhörslängd rolls end in 1899, maybe someone who has either the Sveriges Befolkning 1970 CD (swedish population in 1970) or the Sveriges Dödbok CD (deaths 1950-2000) would look to see if he is listed in either of these databases.

To the attention of Markus Gonshaga:  about 3 years past (21 Mar 2004) you posted a question to this forum about Reinhold Rasmusson from Södra Mellby and also from Simrishamn. I pasted the text of your post, below.  I believe that Reinhold was actually born on 16 Sept 1766 which is the reason you could not find him in the 1767 birth records.  Please contact me at lbcarlso@yahoo.com, or if you reply via this forum please try to also send me an e-mail to the address listed above and we can discuss further.

Hej!
 
Någon som har hittat Reinhold Rasmusson i sin forskning? År 1795 dyker det upp en Reinhold Rasmusson i Bästekille, Södra Mellby. Han anges vara född 1767-09-16 i Simrishamn, men han kan inte återfinnas där.
 
Jag har sett att det finns en familj i Simrishamn under 1700-talet där namnen Reinhold och Rasmus förekommer flitigt om vartannat, men om Reinhold i Bästekille har någon koppling till denna familj har jag inte hittat några bevis på.
 
Hoppas på hjälp,
 
Mvh/
 
Markus Gunshaga.

223
Bo, many thanks.  I have looked again in the birth records and found that Nils Rosenlöf's son Reinhold was born on 13 Aug 1755, so the illegitimate child born on 16 Sep 1766 still could be my ancestor Reinholt Rasmusson. Now maybe one day I'll discover who his father was (though I suspect it was probably Rasmus Reinholtsson, who lived in the same parish and was about 21 and unmarried at the time of Reinholt's birth).

224
Thank you Yvonne -- I think you are correct.  This particular church book is a nightmare between the pages that are nearly illegible, and the fact that it frequently changes forward and backward by year, and also changes whether births, weddings, or deaths were recorded.
 
I have a theory that this individual is Reinholt Rasmusson, who is documented in the Södra Mellby/Kristianstad household examination books starting in 1818 as having been born in Simrishamn on 16 Sep 1767 -- exactly one year before this Reinholt, but there was no other Reinholt born on 16 Sep 1767 in the parish.  However given Yvonne's translation that the child was in delicate health at birth, I reviewed the death records for Simrishamn and found a Reinholt who died on 25 Aug 1767 (GID 1699.30.893) although I believe it says that this person was 28 years old.
 
I would be very interested in any opinions as to whether the child born on 16 Sep 1766 was Reinholt Rasmusson or was a different Reinholt who died about one year later.
 
Thank you all again for your help.

Hej, I would appreciate help with translation of a birth record from the Kristianstad/Simrishamn parish births 1761-1813, GID 1699.30.88200.  The fourth one on the page, 16 Sep 1766 is a child named Reinholt.  I can read the first few words:  födde och samma dag döpte (born and the same day baptised) but then I can't read any of the next few words until nämnet Reinholt, (named Reinholt).  Also can you read the first name of the woman listed immediately after this who has the surname Nilsdotter -- would this be his mother?  I know that the text that follows is the godparents and witnesses.
 
Happy new year to all and thank you for the help.
