I am in need of help reading the death record for Anders Sigfridsson 1694-1765 (Anundsjö C/3 Bild 108/Sida 186 attached).
Rumor has it he was born in Finland, does this record shed any light on that? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Anders was born 1694 in Tavastland county, Sikajocki(?) parish and Rantila village. In those days it was a part of Sweden but Finland today. His parents were Sigfrid Rasmusson and Märeta Andersdotter.


Briefly it says he was recruited in Captain Långströms(?) Company. Taken prisoner by the russians for one year. Arrived to Anundsjö in 1717 and served for seven years as a marine soldier.
Dismissed in 1724 and married Karin Olofsdotter from ??. Lived together for 17 years, got nine children, five sons and four daughters. After Karins death he married Kerstin Persdotter. Lived together 22 years and got three sons and two daughters.
Died April 26.
Burial May 5.
Age 70 years, 3 months

Many thanks Ulf.
I greatly appreciate the historical context of the part of Finland he was born in being a part of Sweden at that time. I assume, given the date, he was taken a prisoner of war during the Great Northern War 1700-1721.

Correct. He was most likely a part of Karl XII army "2.0", set-up in 1709-1710. The "1.0" was erased at Poltava, Ukraine, in 1709. As I understand it he was recruited on a sort of mercenary contract (I think you know what I mean) and not a part of the regular standing army.

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. I greatly enjoyed reading Peter Englund's book, The Battle That Shook Europe Poltava and the Birth of the Russian Empire. Now I have more to look into.

No more base level history lessons  ;D

I hav not yet found any ancestors participating in the Great Northern war before Poltava.
