I am trying to locate additional information about my Swedish ancestry and would welcome any information. Heuning(sp?) August Johansson my great-grandfather, born 4/1/1863 in Sloffakra parish in Halland. Married Albertina Jonasdotter in 1886. She was born 3/2/1857. They emigrated to North America (arrived New York) and settled in Moline, Illinois. I have the Emigration certificate (Flyttningsbevis)dated 23/4/1891 and signed by Pastor P. J. Rydeman. Two children emigrated with them, George Reinhold (my grandfather), born in Tonnansjo, Halland 26/10/1888 and his sister Gerda, born 9/21/1890. I was told that when they arrived in the U.S., my great-grandfather was told there were already plenty of Johnsons so he changed his name to my great-grandmother's maiden name, Lind.  Because the handwriting is difficult to read I do not know whether his first name is Heuning, Henning or even Hemming. Also, it says in Ossjon. I don't know if that is where they emigrated from, completed the emigration form, where he was born or originally from.

I guess Sloffakra = Slättåkra and Tonnansjo = Tönnersjö.  
 
I also guess your great-grandfathers name was Henning (perhaps Hemming but it´s not as usual as Henning).  
 
Good luck!
