Hello all,  This is my first day on this website.  It was suggested to me to try here.

This is a bigger request than average.  I found a 1834 household inventory for Ingemund Ingmansson (1780-1834 Gotland, Sweden).  It is several pages. It is NOT the names and dates that interest me at this point.  I am interested in the inventory list.  I have made out a few words, page one a finger ring, candlestick-scissors?, page two some kind of saw, a hammer  (maybe 2kg), something about fishing,  page 4 a soup tureen, a mug, some glasses.  page 5 -  I have the names and dates.

I find so much more when I can put specifics to an ancestor.  This is my husbands 4th great grandfather and I would like to show my kids what his house would have been like.

After posting this on Wikitree G2G, it was suggested I try here.  There they also gave me the information that the inventory goes beyond the 5th page of names.  Thus maybe my next question is answered in that there is livestock?
I found it odd there were no livestock listed.  I assumed he had livestock but maybe he was a fisherman?  or maybe livestock do not get added to this type of document?

The document starts on the right hand page of this link and there is a total of unknown pages, (but page 5 is all names and dates that I have already been able to decipher).  I thought it ended with the names but it seems to go on - I don't know which is the last page at this point.  Is this normal the only other inventory list I have seen was about 2 pages total (however that one was for a wife, so maybe they didn't list what the husband owned???)

If anyone has the knowledge and time to work on this, I appreciate the help.   Though I would love to have a complete translation that is unrealistic, I will appreciate anything the more the better - as it just gives such a connection when you find that someone had a fishing net or a chicken coop or a iron forge. 

Very hopeful for as many details as possible.  :)
thank you - Marianne

Next portion is the daughter Maria Wilsons personal belongings, and after that all debts and demands. All in all, this was a pretty wealthy household. Also, I never saw that many sheep before, but this is Gotland after all  ;D

I really can't thank you enough.  I know so little about Sweden ancestry.  I only found the link to Sweden records this past March.  My Husbands grandfather was born there in 1902 and immigrated in 1906.  Thus searching Riksarkivet and trying to find history and culture is a new area for me.  Prior to finding the Riksarkivet I was kind of stuck on a large portion of my husbands ancestry. 
This translation is wonderful.
