We are looking for information on Jöns Olsson, we think he was born in either March or May 1803 in Mörarp but have been told his name does not appear in the birth records of that parish. Any help will be appreciated as we are hoping to locate any descendants from this family who are still living in Sweden.

Thnaks again Bo,
You show that there were two sons named Lars, one born in 1837 and one in 1852, died 1855. I am a little confused.
My information shows that Petronella married Anders Pehrsson Heulin (which was probably a name change from Hörlin) and one of their children was named Anna Sophia, which was not shown in the information you sent me.  
In my records I showed that Elias was married to someone named Anna Maria Olson, do they know if he was married twice?

Thank you very much Bo.
I am still going over all the information you sent me. The Christina, or Kristina was my Great Great Grandmother, one of her daughters, Johanna was my Great Grandmother, she married a man names Johannas Olson. The all immigrated to the US in 1887, along with seven children, one of which was my Grandmother, Emma. Christina immigrated at some time, of which I do not know when but she is buried at the New Sweden Lutheran cemetery here in Texas. I have not had a chance to e-mail the person in Lund, but will do as as soon as possible.  
Thanks again,

Anders Grahan is  from Finja Parish, Skåne. Three of his children left Sweden for American, one of which was my Great Grandmother, Christina. To my knowledge four children remain in Sweden, they are Johannes, born 10-10-1849, Maria born 2-6-1847, Sven born 3-31-1849 and Lars born 5-22-1837. I am looking for information on those who remain in Sweden, such as, marriages, children, etc. I am hoping to come to Sweden in the next year or two and would like to find descendents of these families who are now in Sweden.

I am looking for information on Ola Swenson, or maybe Svensson.  I do know he was born on Feb 5, 1846 in Mörarp Parish and was married to Christina Olsson, who was born  June 3, 1849 in Mörarp Parish.  I do not know when they married.  They came to American in 1881.  I know nothing or his parents or if he had any siblings.  Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks so much Maud and Chris, you have been a big help to me.

Thank all of you so much for the information you provided on Hanna and Eva Hult.  They are related to me and my Hult relatives who are living in Sweden lost track of Hanna and Eva after they immigrated to America and I have done some research on them but came up with nothing,so that is the reason of my inquiry. Now I have something to go on trying to locate some living relatives of them who are here in America.
Bo, you are correct, their father did immigrate to America but was thrown in a lake in American and drowned and all his money that he was going to send back to his family in Sweden was stolen.
Judy, I apparently failed to make myself clear but I was only trying to find out their port of debarkation and where they landed in America. Now that I know that I can obtain copies of their ship records.
Going back through some of my information I also found that Anna Lovisa Hult went to America on Aug 31, 1887 but do now know from where she left or where she landed.  I also show she apparently came back to Sweden as my information shows she was living in Stockholm in 1912.  If anyone could find out anything on her I would also appreciate your help.

According to the information I have Emilia immigrated to America in 1895 and Eva immigrated in 1897. They were both born in Malmbäck. They both married in America and know only that one of them married a man named John Bengsston, also a Swedish immigrant.
Eva had two children and Emilia had one child.  I know that one of their children was named Ragnar    
I have searched the Ellis Island records but found nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I believe my Great Grandmother had a brother whose name was Sven Grahn born in the Parish of Finja in Skåne between 1844 and 1847.  I have found information on everyone in that family except Sven.  I would appreciate any help.

Thank you so much Don, I really appreciate th copy of the Household Examination record.
Johanna immigrated with his family to American in 1874, he and his family lived for a while with one of his brothers in Nebraska but do not know which brother.  I am hoping the information you sent will help locate his brother in America.  
Johannas married Johanna Grahn and they had 12 children, one I am told died at a very young ages.  My grandmother was on of the children.
Thanks again Don,

My Great Grandfather, Johannas Olson was born on 22 Aug 1835 in Finja,Skäne.  My information shows his father to be Ole Person and his mother Anna.  My records also show he had brothers whose names were Elias, Per and Nils. Looking for information on this family

I am looking for information on my Grandfather.  He left Sweden in Nov. 1870 and used the name Emanuel Birath Jacobson and we think he left from Hamberg, German and arrived at the port of Galveston, Texas.  Once he got to Texas he changed his name to Emil Lundgren. His brohter Carl Johan Birath and his young son, Emil Birath, they departed Göteborg on Jan. 5, 1886 and we think he also came to Galveston, Texas.

Hello Maud, and thank you for your information.
I am unfamiliar with the Swedish Death Index 4.  Is there some place on the internet that I might get access to those records.
Information I received from Ted states that the 1900 swedish census Tekla was living in Jönköpings östra but you tell me that in 1909 she was living in Skövde. You also show that she moved back to Skövde from Stockholm in 1911. Does you information show when she came back from Jönköpings to Skövde? Would you know if she remaind there until her death?  Also, I found out her Mother Matilda Birath was living in Falköpings stadsfösas of 1900.  Is there any information if that was where she died?  If so, do you know when.

Thank you so much Ted,
I think the Elgin that she immigrated to is Elgin, Texas as that is where her brother Emil lived before his death.  Both Emil and his father, Carl Johan, are buried in New Sweden Lutheran Church cemetary here in Texas.
I am almost certain that is her as I found in some of my records that she married a man whose name was Carl Riener but have not been able to get any information on either of them.
Thanks again,
Leighton Lundgren

I am looking for the date and place of death of Matilda Armnda Teresia Blomqvist.  She was born on Aug 8 1852 in Habo and married Carl Johan Birath on Dec 12 1875 in Habo. Carl and his son, Emil immigrated to the US but his wife and two daughters remained in Sweden.  I am also looking for any information on the two daughters, Gustava Olivia born on May 13, 1878 and Teckla Maria born on May 13, 1881, both born in Hjo.

Hello Judy,
Thank you so much for your information.  I did find Signe Gunhilda being born in both the Bälaryd and Bärkeryd records.
There appears to be some confusion with the name of Klas Alfred Gustafsson Eklund.  In the birth records of all the children it showed the fathers name as Gustafson.  Also, when looking in the birth records for him, it showed he was born on 4-15-1870 but fathers name was Johan August Andersson and mothers name as Lovisa Jonasdotter.  So, I am wondering why the names of Gustafsson and Eklund are showed in the information you gave me. In some other information I was sent it also showed his name to be Klas Alfred Gustafsson Eklund.

Hello again Anita,
Thanks again for your assistance with the Post and number that I was inquiring about.  I am sure you saw the response from Don Tuthill which explains my question.
I was attempting to get the correct dates of Klas Alfred Gustafsson and Augusta Vilhelmina's children from this web site I have that shows births, deaths and marriage from many parishes in Småland. When looking at the birth records of Bälaryd I was able to find the birth date of Signe Gunhilda Ingeborg as 5-21-1894 but when looking at the years of 1896, 1897 and 1899 I was not able to find Knut, Anges and Astrid. Do you think those children could have been born on someplace other than Bälaryd?
If you would like the web site I have used, let me know and I will be happy to send it to you.

Thank you Elizabeth and Bo,
I recently found a passenger manifest showing the Karl G. Soderberg and Margit Soderberg went to America in 1935 but am not sure if these are the people I am inquiring.
I was in error, the name should have been Göran Elgfeldt instead of Birath.
Looking forward to your reply.

Margit and Brita's father was Aron Nataneal Nilsson,born Jul 1, 1874 outside of Nyköping and their mother was Anna Marie Birath, born Jun 26, 1976 in Nyköping  They had a brother, Gösta born on Dec. 6, 1907 in Stockholm.
Anna Maria was born out of wedlock in 1876  in Örebro, her mother was Carolina Christina Birth, born in 1842.
They lived at Duvbo, outside of Stockholm in 1907.
I am not sure but I believe Margit's husband was named Karl G. Soderberg.
I show that Göran Birath was born Feb 2, 1932.
Hopes this helps.

I am looking for any information on Margit and Brita Birath.
Margit was married to a man named Soderberg.  Don't know if they had children.
Brita was married to a man named Eigfeldt and they had two children, Göran and Christina.

I am looking for the date of place of death of Matilda Bloomqvist.  She married Carl Johan Birath on 30 Dec 1875 in Häbo.  Am also looking for any infformation of their daughter, Gustafva, her date and place of death, any marriages, spouse,children, etc.

I am trying to find the place and date of death of my Grandfather's sister, Carolina Christina Birth, born on 3 Apr 1842 in Grevbäck.

I am looking for descendants of the following siblings of my Grandmother, Mathilda Svensdotter:

Thank you again Elisabeth but all the information I have is that Matilda was born on February17, 1862 in Värnamo, Småland.  She married my Grandfather sometime between 1890 and 1892 but do not know if they married in Sweden or if she returned to Texas and then married my Grandfather.  I do know that when my Grandfather immigrated to Texas, he came into the port of Galveston, Texas.  I don't believe the Matilda listed above is my Grandmother.

I want to correct the birthdate of Mathilda.  It was February  
17, 1862.  Thanks for your help, Eva and Elisabeth, but I  
am looking for a different Mathilda.

I am looking for imformation on my Grandmother's Parents  
or any siblings.  My information shows her name was  
Swenson, or is probably Svensson.  My Father's birth  
certificate shows her name as Maltilda Hultman.  She came  
from Värnamo and married my Grandfather sometime  
around 1890, his name was Emil Lundgren.  My  
Grandmother was born in 1865  She immigrated to Kimbro,  
Texas shortly before or after her marriage. She died in  
Kimbro, Texas  
in 1943.
