Once again I am hoping for help with a couple questions :-)
 
[ Östergötland, Borg > AI:17, page 80 >  and  > AI:17, page 210 ]
Regarding Torparen Carl Magnus Carlsson [f. 1822] who is at Lilla Ahlsätter 1868-1879 [see page 80]. Then 1879 he moves to Stora Åsängen as Egare [see page 210].
 
So can someone tell me what might have happened here?  Isn't the change from torparen to egare a big deal?  How might he have managed that? If egare is owner, how would he have had the money to buy land?  Or, am I still not understanding the process of 'land ownership' that was available to farmers at that time?
 
From this point forward there are usually at least a couple workers listed below his family on that page - is this a sign of being a successful farmer, that is to have others in your employ? or  are the others just coincidently living on the same farm?  
[Östergötland, Borg > AI:17, page 210 > AI:18, page 210 > AI:19, page 276 > AI:20, page 283 ]
 
My second question is about Frans Carl Carlsson [f.1857], son of the above Carl Magnus. He is listed with the family on page 80 AI:17, Borg Östergötland, just before Carl Magnus moves his family to Stora Åsängen. What is the notation that is written regarding him?  He never appears with the family again, so that is all I have to help me find him.
 
 
Thank you so much for any help offered, I would be lost without you all :-)

Hi Kathryn,
 
At ArkivDigital (and NAD) that volume is Norrköpings Borg AI:15 (1877-1882) Bild 220 / sid 210. You are quite right, Carl Magnus is the Egare of Stora Åsängen and that farm is large enough to have workers (Drängar and Pigor). It is not very rare that a Torpare become an Egare. He might have worked hard and saved money to buy the farm, he might have got the farm or money as a heritage and he might have large indebts. If he is successful is probably something that you can se if he still is Egare after several years and on how much he owns when he dies.
 
The remark on Frans Carl is Work attest 28/4 1877 to railway (construction) in ???. But he is listed on page 210 and moves to Norrköping 1880.

Leif,
 
Thank you for your quick answers! Carl Magnus does remain at Stora Åsängen until his death in 1908, although he seems to take on less and less help as the years go by, and in 1900 when Carl Magnus is 78 years old, there is only one piga and his son to take care of the farm. Does that make sense? He is called a landtbrukare - is he still the owner? Also, I have not been able to find a bouppteckning for him. Especially if he owns a farm, shouldn't there be some probate records?
 
Any information you can offer is very much appreciated,
 
Kathryn

He is probably still the owner when he dies in 1908, although his son is probably the one doing the farming, and the son takes over the ownership after 1908. There should be a bouppteckning, but I don't know how to find it. You probably can't find it online.

When you know date and place of death a 'bouppteckning' (inventory) can be ordered at Riksarkivet:

Carl Magnus Carlsson died April 16 1908, Stora Åsängen. Does anyone know if I would I be able to find a bouppteckning from that time in Arkiv Digital?

Probably too new. In Arkiv Digital they go to 1900 for Norrköpings Borg (if that is the parish for Stora Åsängen).  
 
Use the link I posted above. A mark for Dödsbodelägarna will give you the heirs.

Kristina -
 
Thank you for your help. I will probably order the bouppteckning, unless I am able to connect with a living relative that I have found, but not yet heard from.  
So it is good to know that I have another option for getting information.
 
Again, thank you so very much for your assistance, I will be eternally grateful for all this help,
Kathryn

It will only cost SEK 4 and most often you get the info in 1-2 weeks, if you choose e-mail. I forgot to say that you should have the birthdate, too.
 
If you want help to fill the form, just send me an e-mail.

Kristina -  
 
you gave me courage  . . .  I went onto the site and ordered the record!
it felt a little scary to deal with an online form in a language I do not speak;
but then I put it through Google translate and it all seemed rather simple,  
 
So we'll see what comes of this, and of course many thanks ...  again :-)

Fine! I keep my fingers crossed.
