Does anyone know a good place to find out where specific farms were located? Or towns that don't seem to appear on Google maps?

Benedict -
You mention specific farms - does that mean you know the name of the Swedish county where
such farm(s) might be located ?  This is an excellent Forum in which to begin your search - post
a message, naming the particular farm you seek and the County.  Perhaps someone reading your
post will already know the place.  I've had good luck finding a Google map of a particular farm,
after determining the nearest large town or village.  Good luck in your search.

I've been looking for a farm or village called Fredsburg in Vastra Gotland, where my g-g-grandmother was born. There seemed to be much back-and-forth between Lyrestand and Hassle with her parents, so it must be nearby. Is anyone familiar with Fredsburg?

Hi Sherri!
It must be Fredsberg, a parish in Skaraborg county east the town Mariestad, landscape Västergötland
The places Hassle and Lyrestad only 8 kilometers from Fredsberg.
If you have the name of your g-g-grandmother perhaps we can find more about her relatives.

Please observe that this subtopic is supposed for general questions concerning

Rune, thank you very much for your help! Would you be kind enough to post a link to a map (if you have one) that shows the location of Fredsberg in Skaraborg Co? That must certainly be the place I've been looking for! :-)

Sherri, Fredsberg in Västra Götaland Län (County) that Rune found can be found at Google Maps at 14.066667,11z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x465b7378a09eddb5:0xaed52f1b80e881d7?hl=sv,https: //,14.066667,11z/data=!4m2! 3m1!1s0x465b7378a09eddb5:0xaed52f1b80e881d7?hl=sv  (Use the zoom facility to zoom in or out to get a better idea where Fredsberg is located)
As you can see it is located northeast of the town Mariestad. The name of the province is Västergötland. /Hans
