This is strange, his death record is found in Käringöns kyrkoarkiv, Födelse- och dopböcker, SE/GLA/13307/C/1 (1795-1898), bildid: C0041434_00048
https://sok.riksarkivet.se/bildvisning/C0041434_00048
Could it be that he died in Skredsvik's (where he was born)? Could he have been visiting? His death record says he died from "magplågor" = stomach pains.
Thoughts?

Greetings,
I am seeking help with the notes for Jacob Olsson 1767 on Käringöns kyrkoarkiv, Husförhörslängder, SE/GLA/13307/A I/1 (1787-1848), Image ID: C0041430_00130, page 5 (attached).
There is something about a (?).."bevis".. "Skredvicks"..(kyrkobola?).."död" (evidence, Skredvicks, died).
Any help you can give me in making sense of the notes would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Sune for finding the family record in Skredsviks AI/1 sida 81. It gives the year of birth for both his parents and shows his siblings, none of which I previously had. It looks as if the family moved from Bön as the entire family has been scratched off (a big X covering the family).

Yes Jörgen, the Jacob Olsson I am looking for is the one found in Käringön C:1 image 48 https://sok.riksarkivet.se/bildvisning/C0041434_00048. And looking at the birth record I thought he was born on 10 March, I didn't notice the ending notation that says the was born on the 8th until you pointed it out. Thanks for your shape eyes!

Thanks again Sune,
I'll look into the leads you have giving me, I did not have those. I am also looking into one other possibility, Jacob Olofsson born 10 Mar 1767 Skredsvik,
Skredsviks kyrkoarkiv, Födelse- och dopböcker, SE/GLA/13480/C/2 (1749-1789), Image ID: C0042162_00089, page 157.
However, I am not able to make out the location where he was born on the birth record (located on the far right). Can you read it? I would like to track him via the household exams.
Jacob Olofsson's daughter Kerstin, my 3rd great grandmother, moves to Skredsvik 10 Nov 1817 (age 13) after her father Jacob Olofsson's death (he died in 1813). It seems a long way to move to if you did not have any family ties.

I see Anna listed as fattige (poor/pauper) with 2 til 5 (?) written next to it. What does that mean? The years she was considered poor? In this case 1802 till 1805? And was only Anna listed as poor or the entire family? I see one son and Anna's mother have passed away during this time.
I am also curious if Käringöns kyrkoarkiv, Husförhörslängder, SE/GLA/13307/A I/1 (1787-1848), Image ID: C0041430_00042, page 1 shows the number of families and population for Käringön for the year 1792.

Great question Staffan. Unfortunately there is no single word in English I can think of that directly translates over from Swedish here. At least not one that is in current use. In this case it takes several words in English to capture the meaning of the one word in Swedish.

Greetings,
I am seeking the death record of Jöns Christensson of Käringön. Someone else has his date of death as 29 May 1769. I am seeking to confirm it. I have located the record in question but the writing is hard for me to read. I have attached the record. Morlanda kyrkoarkiv, Födelse- och dopböcker, SE/GLA/13376/C/2 (1745-1780), Image ID: C0041693_00240, page 453
If this is the correct person, could you make anything more out of it? It appears as though both he and the man below, Jacob Larsson, both has something happen to them on the 4th of Jun that led to their death.
Any and all help greatly appreciated!

General questions / Help translating a sentence.
« skrivet: 2020-11-22, 23:18 »
I am seeking help translating a sentence into English regarding one of my ancestors who fought at Poltava in 1709 and was taken prisoner. The sentence is,
Fången 1709-06-28 vid Poltava “under återtåget från upptagsställningen i skogen till gardesskansen”.
Google translates it as either,
Prisoner 1709-06-28 at Poltava "during the retreat from the shooting range in the forest to the guard post".
or
Prisoner 1709-06-28 at Poltava "during the retreat from the uptake position in the forest to gardesskansen".
The context is as follows.
“Gen. Roos and six battalions (one-third of the Swedish infantry) became isolated while attempting to take the third Russian redoubt. After suffering severe casualties from several assault attempts, Roos led the remaining 1,500 of his original 2,600 men into the Yakovetski woods to the east at 6:00 a.m. The Russians reoccupied the first two redoubts and launched a two-pronged attack by ten regiments around 7:00 a.m., forcing Roos to retreat towards Poltava and take refuge in an abandoned fort by 9:00 a.m. when he could not make it to the Swedish siege works. Roos was forced to surrender his command at 9:30 a.m.” (Wikipedia)
In his book “The Battle That Shook Europe, Poltava and the birth of the Russian Empire”, Peter Englund states that during the retreat from the redoubts the Dalecarlians (of which my ancestor served as a Captain) were deployed as a screen as the others attempted their escape. He states, “The Dalesman, deployed to the rear and left, prevented the Russian Calvary from tying the knot in the sack. Their stand kept an escape route open to the south for the men trying to save themselves by flight. Most of those not killed or captured were washed away in a feverish general bolt down a large and many-branched ravine, running immediately behind the initial defensive position.”
Does it make sense, given what we know happened historically, that my ancestor was captured during this time, and if so, how should the sentence in question be properly translated?
This is something I have wondered for a long time. Any help or input would be greatly appreciated.

I am seeking help with the family record for Catharine Andersdotter 1765 Varnums kyrkoarkiv, Husförhörslängder, SE/VA/13614/A I/2 (1763-1768), Image ID: C0039242_00047, page 36 attached. Her parents are Anders Johansson 1720 and Agneta Jonsdotter 1725. My questions are as follows, would Johan Andersson 1694 and Kerin Svensdotter (spelling ?) be Anders Johansson's parents? And what happened to the family? Did they die off? I am unable to find the english translations for the words written down on the the right hand side of the ledger. It appears at first glance that many of them died off during the years 1765 and 1766. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you Kalle. I think you did an amazing job at translating the religious phrases. It appears that he made a "death bed" confession two days before he died and repented for how poorly he treated his wife. It gives me some real insight into who he was. This can never be gotten from dates only. I greatly appreciate your time and effort.

Thanks for the help Leif.


I'm often struck more by what is not said in a death record than by what is. Here we have a man (my great grandfather) who died at the age of 33 and and my first question is "what happened to him"? Yet his death record is silent on the cause of death but tells us he "Lived as a good Christian". That was more important to them than the reasons why he was called home so early in his life. The worldview they held is so different then the one which prevails today.


And thanks for the information on finding the family in the Anundsjö exam for the years 1743-1760. Unfortunately Riksarkivet numbers them differently so it will take me some time to track them down.

Thanks again Ulf. I have two ancestors who fought at Poltava in 1709 (one was captured at Lesnaya in 1708, the other at Poltava in 1709). So apparently Anders was part of Karl XII's rebuilt army after the first was wiped out. I am very interested in military history so to find another relative of mine who fought in the Great Northern war is very exciting to me. Not much is written in English on the Great Northern War.

Dear Sven,

I have taken the time to carefully look over what you said and I believe you are 100% correct. Even the apparent ages of the children pictured match what Olga and Olof should be. I never knew that my great-grandfather had siblings who also came to America. It is apparent that Amanda was writing her uncle Karl inquiring about the health and well being of her mother Britta as she had not heard anything from her.



Now I know who is in the photo. My great-great-grandfather Jonas Forssten, my 1st cousin 2x removed Amanda (with spouse), and her children Olga and Olof, my 2nd cousins 1x removed.
 
P.S. I misread earlier about the immigration dates and can see now that Karl came in 1891 and Britta in 1892. My mistake.
Many, many thanks!

55

Greetings Sven!
I think you might be correct, and I am left speechless. Yes, Karl Gustaf Forssten (Forsten) is my great-grandfather. He immigrated to Ashland, Wisconsin and that is where my paternal grandmother and my father were born. My family visited his grave in Ashland, WI this past summer. I found a letter in with the postcard photo that appears to be written by the same hand. I know it gives the date of Jonas Forssten's death but I have not translated anything else from the letter. Reading over what you have said I think I can make out the names Olle and Olga on page 3 (see attached image). It looks like there was originally more to the letter but this is all that has survived. I am excited to hear if this confirms your thoughts on the matter.


I did not know that Karl made a previous trip to America before he finally settled here, nor the information on Britta Maria. I knew that Jonas had an Anna, Johannes, Britta Maria (1868-?) and a Karl Gustaf (my great-grandfather). So this is all news to me.


Let me know if this confirms your suspicions.


THANKS!

Thank you for pointing that out for me Marianne, I did not know that. It adds more to the mystery of who wrote the letter and to whom it was addressed!

Greetings,
I am in need of help translating the words on the back of a photo postcard. My father has written G. Gp. Forsten on the back. That would most likely be his Great Grandfather Jonas Forsten from Sweden. I have wondered for years what was written on the back, and if it could in any way help identify the other people in the photo (other family members?)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Anundsjö A1/9a page 296. His wife (Ingeborg Svensdotter 1815) passed away on 01 Jun 1846. After Abraham's death the children are split up. All the children's names are crossed off except for Jonas 1844. There are some notes written under his name, do they pertain to his record or the person below?

Greetings,
For many years I have wondered exactly what the notes on my great-grandparents marriage record said. I would greatly appreciate any help in translating them. I think part of what they say is that my great-grandmother has not been baptized (she was a Baptist), and something about my great-grandfather not taking communion? He was a Baptist too.

 Greetings,
I am seeking help in finding the parish for Maria Jansdotter on Övre Ulleruds kyrkoarkiv, Lysnings- och vigselböcker, SE/VA/13691/E I/2 (1778-1861), Image ID: C0039840_00103, page 205. It appears to read Södra Ueden? But I am unable to find it. What does it say after the parish name? And if I am reading the record correctly it states that banns were on the 18th of April and the marriage on 23 June? The birth record for her (24 Nov 1829) is not available so I am trying to track her back to her home parish and hopefully find her in the household exam with her family. This is the record of her marriage to my great-great grandfather Jonas Andersson Forssten. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am seeking help with the notes on the household exam for Johanna Sophia Dalberg (Dahlberg) on Viksjö AI 4 page 76 (attached). I can read (but correct me if I am wrong) that she arrived from Ljustorp in 1836 and that she was born in Stockholm. Date of birth is listed as 18/11 1810 (questionable). Her illegitimate daughter Carin is with her; born Stigsjö 10/11 1839. I cannot translate the notes on the far right of the page, any help would be greatly appreciated.


Regarding her date of birth, the earliest record I can find for his is from Ljustorp AI 3 page 56 (attached). Here it lists her date of birth as 4/11 of 1810. I wonder if there was confusion with the Johanna born 18/10 1810 who is listed just above her. Thoughts? Also, what occupation is she listed as? It is not piga, is that due to her age (as she would have only been 12 years old in 1822 which is the date I believe the records starts at for her on this page). Any help would be greatly appreciated regarding this matter. How does a 12 year old girl get from Stockholm to Ljustorp? A mystery indeed.

Thanks Leif,


I've been unable to locate a Kerstin/Kirstin/Chirstin 10/? 1804 in Bokenäs before AI:8 page 308 covering the years 1825-1831. I do suspect that this might be the correct Kerstin for two additional reasons. First, this Kerstin has ties to Skredviks having previously lived there, and the Kerstin I am looking for had her second child (Johanna born 1833) with a Herman Hansson (?) from Bön, Skredviks. Second, when the Kerstin I am looking for had her first child with Elias Olsson in 1830 before they were married (married in 1836) the child was born at Åsen under Berg under Skaftö, Morlanda where the sister of Elias lived with her family. One would think that a woman would want to deliver her child with family. This Christin/Kerstin's father passed away in 1813 and her mother in 1829. She would have had no family to turn to (only other family was a younger sister).


I may never have definitive proof, only proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Thoughts??

 Erik, thanks for translating the record for me. It appears that he didn't receive any jail time for his offenses but rather fines, "lashes", and Kyrkoplikt (literary: 'Church duty'). What I find most fascinating is that he received a larger fine for desecrating the sabbath than he did for the crime itself (he apparently committed the theft on a Sunday). It is very telling of the culture and society he lived in at that time. And I appreciate being able to see the actual record, thanks for including it. Many, many thanks!

Thanks Leif,
 
This one is a little strange. Elias Olsson and Kjerstin Jacobsdotter were not married when their first child Oleana Eliasdotter (my great-great-grandmother) was born on 21 Mar 1830 in Morlanda, Göteborg och Bohus.[1] We find them all living together for the first time at Bredvik, Bokenäs, Göteborg och Bohus (record covering the years 1812-1836). Elias Olsson has paid 1:16 Riksdaler for intercourse before marriage, and Kerstin Jacobsdotter has been kyrktagen som fästeqvina July 10, 1830. Kyrktagning was a ceremony by which a woman who had given birth was “cleaned” and admitted to church again.[2] Fästeqvinna is an old word for fiancé. In Sweden at that time a promise to marry was considered binding, so the church had accepted that a child born by an engaged woman was not illegitimate. Elias and Kerstin become engaged on 22 Oct. 1830[3] but are not married until 21 Jul 1836,[4] a span of almost 6 years. Now it appears that within that six year span of time Kjerstin gives birth to Johanna and the father is not Elias but rather Herman (?) There is a note in the parish records saying that Elias was sentenced for theft on 06 Jul 1831 (Bokenas AI:8 sida 399) could Elias have been in prison when Johanna was conceived?

But when I checked the birth record (Bokenäs C:3 bild 52 sida 87) it appears to read that she is illegitimate and that her father is a Herman Hansson from Bön, Skredsviks, am I reading this correct? If so, I have found Herman Hansson 1809 13/9 in Bön, Skredsviks AI:9 sida 150 covering the years 1831-1840. If this is her father, what do the notes read? Many thanks.

Thanks for pointing that out. I had simply assumed it was the mother moving in due to the same name and family ties.

They must be one and the same individual. Borås AI:7 Bild 36/Sida 50 shows Inga Nilsdotter born 1775 from Kind arrived 1804 (I also checked 1801) listed with her son Nicolaus born 1807 in Borås. Yet when we check the incoming record for Borås we find listed Ingrid Nilsdotter born 1776 Gällstad see Borås BI:1 Bild 26/Sida 34 person #43. There is no other Inga or Ingrid Nilsdotter coming into Borås in the years 1801 or 1804. This must be the same person.



That being the case, I would greatly appreciate knowing what the last record in Borås reads about her. Broås AI:11 (1830-1838) Bild 45/Sid 34 reads "Inhys" (living gratis at another persons residence) "Piga" (unmarried woman) Inga Nilsdotter from Gällstad born 1776. She moves out in 1832 (#159) to "Lidköping". The last column reads "fattig" (pauper/poor) but the first word I cant make out (Fjicklig?). I am curious to know what it means. She is also found on page 43 of the same record.


I did find her in Lidköping BI:1 Bild 80 #138.

Thanks again for all your help. My great-great grandfather sure moved around before moving to Göteborg in 1834. It seems there was some overlap between the records of Torpa and Borås. That would help explain the mistake made on the parish record. His date of birth also changes along the way. That also happened with his third wife Oleana, my great-great grandmother as well. On his birth record does it read “oägta”? Is this another way to spell oäkta, “illegitimate”?

And as far as I can tell, Nicolaus’s mother Inga Nilsdotter was never married. I read “piga” on the household records and no mention of being a widow. Nicolaus appears to be the only child of an unwed mother who as of 1824 had never been married.

With your help I think I have found my great-great grandfather's "missing" birth record. I am going to post my question here and apologize if I should have started a new posting but the background information you all have provided along the way is necessary to answer the question. When I looked for the incoming and outgoing records for Torpa for the year 1829 (the year Nicolaus moved into Vralen) I found they are listed under Borås. And when I looked at the birth records for Borås for the year Nicolaus was born, 19/6 1807 I found a Nicolaus listed (Borås CI:7 Bild 18/Sida 21). However I do not see his father's name listed as "Peter". This has to be his birth record, but what could explain the difference in the last name? I have attached the birth record in question and kindly ask if someone could translate it for me (unless you all feel that this is NOT the correct Nicolaus born 19/6 1807 Torpa). I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this puzzling matter.


With heart felt thanks,

Thanks again Leif. When I look at the incoming record for Bredared in 1831 it says he came from "Gingråd"? Bredared B:1 Bild 88 (see attachment, person 36). I read Dräng Nicolaus Pettersson, "Gingråd(?)", "Sranabi(?)" Bredared, 1807, and notes I cant make out in the last column. I have checked a listing of all the parishes in Sweden and cannot find one close to "Gingråd". Am I way off base on the spelling or is it not listed in the books and sources I have checked?


On my father's side everyone lived and died in the same parish. The men might get a wife from a neighboring parish but that was the extent of it for as long as far back as the parish records exist. All farmers. On my mother's side they never stayed in one place for long and there are so many notes in the records. It has been a challenge. I greatly appreciate all the help.

I am trying now to back track his life as a last ditch effort to find out more on him. I have also attached the outgoing record incase there is any information there that you feel would be of any value in my search (Borås B:2 image 84 attached).


Thanks

I have been stuck for several days trying to translate notes on two parish church records. The first is regarding the notes on line 23 from Götebrogs Oscar Fredriks AIIa:33 image 171 line 23 (see attachment). What has he not been absolved from, and where did he move to. The notes appear to say "7th" something. And it looks like he moves to someplace called "Vasa Varden" but I cannot find anything close to that.


The second note (see attachment) is from Göteborgs Oscar Fredriks AI:20 page 2657 (same individual). On line 3 what is "Le Ankönslängden!" mean? I believe the additional notes are simply carried over from a previous parish record in which he was sentenced on Feb. 1 1882 for first time burglary to two years loss of citizens rights in addition to six months penalty. Then on Oct. 9 1884 for fourth time theft to four years hard labor and loss of citizens rights for five more years.


I am stuck and any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you so very much for your help! Oleana is my great-great grandmother (direct maternal line). My grandmother passed away without ever knowing much about her mother’s side of the family. I got into genealogy when she was still alive in an effort to discover her past. Unfortunately it took roughly 25 years for me to crack the family mystery and it was only possible with the help of this forum. The secret was lying in the notes I could not read. My mother is now 87 and loves learning about her family history. After so many years it was getting to the point where I was about to give up. But often perseverance pays off in the end. So again I thank you and everyone else here on this forum for all the help you give to people like me.

Greetings,
I am seeking help regarding words in a household exam. Bokenäs AI:15 page 162 reads Socknens Slut. Is this a page for listing people without a permanent home? It also says Fattige (pauper) is this an actual location or simply a record of poor people? Also, are pages 163 and 164 still a part of Socknens Slut? Page 163 reads (as best as I can tell) Lösa Personer. What is a Lösa Personer, a missing person?

Many thanks.

Thank you for clearing up what happens to Josefina Charlotta. This is now clear. Josefina leave with her mother, returns on 3/11 1861 (Bokenas B:3 sida 3), then dies at Bokenas (Bokenas AI:17 sida 421; Bokenas C:5 page 255).


I had not seen  Goteborgs Gustavi (Domkyrkoforsamling) AIa:7 Bild 85/sid 162. This record shows Oleana with BOTH her daughters Johanna Maria and Josefina Charlotta before she marries Niklas Petersson on 21 Feb. 1862 and moves to page 648. And looking closely at page 648 it appears (to me) that it has Johanna Maria marked as moving to Goteborg DK at the same time as Josefina Charlotta and Oleana (11/12 60). Could this be a mistake? I have searched the incoming and outgoing records for Bokenas and cannot find anywhere that Johanna Maria leaves for Goteborg DK before 1872. The more I look into this the more complicated it becomes. Thoughts??

Are you sure about Josefina dying in 1862 and never making it to Goteborg? Bokenas B:2 image 27 shows Oleana and Josefina leaving for Goteborg Gustavi on 26/11 1860. Goteborg Gustavi AI:a8  page 648 shows Oleana with both her illegitimate daughters Johanna Maria and Josefina Charlotta and says they arrived from Bokenas 11/12 1860. Johanna moves to Norway in 1883, Josefina to obifk? (do you know what parish that is?) Son Carl Oskar died in 1862, Augusta Elfrida Mathilda in 1864. Last record available to me shows son Adolf Fredrik still living unmarried in Goteborg. Oleana's youngest child, Anna Charlotta (my great grandmother) leaves for America in 1890.


On a side note, Bokenas A:18 page 500 says that Johanna went to Goteborg Gustavi in 1870, but Bokenas B:3 image 29 states the year as 1872.

Thanks Leif for your response. I did find today on Bokenas AI/17 page 419 that Oleana Eliasdotter is listed as the mother of Johann Maria. Thanks for the translation of the note on Bokenas AI/16 page 137 regarding the "sale" of Johanna to Joh Skarp. I am not good at notes. Names and dates are not too hard but notes are a mystery so I am very grateful for your help. I was not aware of how things went in Sweden back in the 19th century. It's very helpful to know. Living in America in the 21st century it is hard for me to grasp how difficult a life my ancestors had. In the world I live in even the poorest of the poor have more than enough to eat, government housing, free health care and even free cell phones.
It makes me more appreciative of what I have been given!
And thanks for asking if I had seen Josefina Charlotta's birth record. I had but truly appreciate you asking. Her birth record can be found in Bokenas C/5 bottom of page 7.

Thanks for your help. Bokenas AI:16 page 137 (see attachment) shows Oleana and Josefina Charlotta moving to Goteborg Domkyrko on 11 Dec. 1860. Johanna Maria however moved to page 121 in Bokenas. Later in life you find them back together again in Goteborg Domkyrko (see attachment) after Oleana marries Niklas Peterson. It seems very strange to leave one child behind. Even later in life no date is given for Johanna Maria outside of the year of her birth. However, Bokenas AI:16 page 121 states that Johanna Maria Andersdotter was born in Goteborg (if I am not mistaken). Are the records clear that Johanna Maria is Oleana's daughter? Bokenas AI:16 states that Olaus Pehrsson Gron was the father of Josefina Charlotta. No mention is ever given (as far as I have found) for the father of Johanna Maria Andersdotter. Again, was Oleana her mother? I look forward to hearing any thoughts you have regarding this mystery.

I am in need of help translating and interpreting the attached household exam. Bokenäs AI:15 page 127.
On the top of the page is listed Kjerstin Jacobsdotter 10/7 04 with three of her daughters, Oleana Eliasdotter 25/4 30, Anna Charlotta Eliasdotter and Helena Eliasdotter. Do the notes say they moved out to pages 162 and 164 in 1852 (I can't tell if they are coming or going)? They are listed again on the same page under Olaus Persson. Kjerstin Jacobsdotter, Oleana Eliasdotter, Helena Eliasdotter and Johanna Maria "Andersdotter". Do the notes say Kjerstin came back in from page 162 in 1854? And what do the notes say for Olean Eliasdotter (who is listed three times on the page) and her illegitimate daughter Johanna Maria? And am I reading it correctly that it says "Andersdotter"? Because Johanna Maria (Andersdotter?) was apparently born in Bokenas, why can I not find her listed in the parish birth records? Did it happen at times that illegitimate children were not recorded? Oleana is my great-great grandmother. Kjerstin is my great-great-great grandmother.
Thank you for any help in deciphering this record. I greatly appreciate it.

I have a follow up question regarding the Personalförteckning C 648. I am familiar with the Swedish household exams of my other ancestors, but this type of form is new to me. Are the other names listed under Niklas Peterson his other children (I assume they are) Joselina Charlotta, Johanna Maria (same date of birth as sister?), Carl Oscar, Augusta Elsabita Matlida, Adolf Fridrik? I see that Niklas and two children passed away correct?

I can read the names of her parents (Niklas Peterson and Oleana Eliasdotter) but am unsure if it says that Niklas was a former artillery man (retired military).

I think that this is the correct Anna Charlotta Peterson.


My grandmother told me that Anna and Henning (my great-grandfather) would often argue and that Henning would threaten to tell "the secret". They would then argue in Swedish and walk on opposite sides of the road. If this is "the secret" (a child born out of wedlock and left behind in Sweden), it would also explain why no one has been able to track down her parents in over a quarter-century. She was covering up her past and not wanting it to be found. Anna has been a great mystery in my family. Nothing is know about her other than what I have shared.


I have six Swedish great-grandparents and have been able to track them all down except for Anna Charlotta Peterson. I have looked at the birth records from every single parish in Sweden over the past 25 years looking to find her record of birth. This would explain why I could not find her anywhere. A Swedish relative who is into family history (no longer living) tried back in the early 1990's without success, so I am not the only one who has run into a brick wall. I doubt that there are any other Anna Charlotta Petersons born in Nov of 1870 who emigrated from Gothenburg to Minneapolis in 1889/1890. I think Anna just made up a story on her past because she did not want her past to be known.
Your thoughts?


I cannot thank you all enough for your help. My dear mother is now 85 and I may be finally able to share with her something about her grandmother.

Thank you for your help!
Here is what I know about my great-grandmother Anna Charlotta Peterson. Her death certificate (State of Minnesota) from 1927 lists her date of birth as 07 November, 1870. Birthplace Sweden. Name of father (unknown).
Father's birthplace Sweden. Mother's maiden name Charlotte Peterson. Mother's birthplace Sweden. The US Census of 1900 gives the place of birth for both her and her parents as Sweden, and lists her (and my great-grandfather's) year of immigration as 1889.
I was told back in 1977 that both my great-grandparents (Anna Charlotta and spouse) came from Gothenburg Sweden. The story goes that Anna came to America with a girlfriend. Just wanted to come here. They landed in Canada and that she was going to be shipped back to Sweden because she did not have anyone to sign for her. She was asked if she knew anyone in the US and she said she knew my great-grandfather and his sister who were living in Minneapolis, MN. They signed for her and she came to live with them. A few months later they were married. The marriage certificate was taken out on 05 May, 1891. Anna said that she was illegitimate (therefore she did not know her father's name). Yet I was also told that her father was French and that he lost a leg in battle and that he received a pension from the government. Anna and my great-grandfather must have met in Gothenburg. My great-grandfather moved there from Alvsborg, Sweden with his sister before emigrating to America. I found my great-grandfather in the Goteborgs Kristine
parish, but have not been able to track down Anna Charlotta Peterson.

I have been trying for over a quarter century to track down my great-grandmother Anna Charlotta Peterson. I think I may have found her on the attached household exam record but cannot read it.
Anna Charlotta Peterson is on line 6 and it lists her birth place as Gust Dkfs. What parish is this? Can you tell anything else from the record? I know that she reportedly came from GothenBurg och Bohus, Sweden and came to America around 1889-1890. I have her birth date as 07 November, 1880. Her mother's name was Charlotte Peterson, and her father was unknown. She knew my great-grandfather in Gothenburg before they emigrated to America and I have found him living in Gothenburg during this time. I tried to find out information on her for my grandmother before she passed away (without success), and now my mother is 85 and she is very interested in knowing more about her grandmother.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
