Thank you both - this is starting to make sense, as the terms are being laid out - Basically he had saved enough money or made arrangements to lease (Arrend) a field (Åfelt) of land to farm (Åbo). Meaning a better opportunity for him and his family to raise their stage in life.
And that denoted pride in hard work, and was added to his last name and similar to calling someone Judge Sam Smith.
I will do my best to add categories for each parish they lived in as well and work on building out profiles where facts are matched with the sources so they can easily be read and make logical sense and all facts line up and not just a bunch of links. Is there anything else that is "uber" important on Swedish profiles when creating them? I've looked over the wikitree page on Sweedish research and will try to follow all the guidelines (with normal learning curves). Unfortunately I don't have time to join a project right now, but want to try to make sure I'm following all the guidelines if possible when creating them and will also work on spidering out the siblings descendents and spouses instead of just direct line up, as well in an attempt to join people up, as that I know is invaluable and have seen in my Tennessee work.
A few last questions, as a full 1/8th of my tree is likely in Sweeden and this is the tip of the iceberg, so I have a lot of learning to do. As I don't think many jumped across the ocean, as my DNA hits on Ancestry for this line are very sparse, compared to my Tennessee and Kentucky links where I have hundreds - and haven't noticed many matches other sites either.
Is there a likely DNA repository that would hold more matches with Sweden then others? Or does the EU privacy restrictions prevent that at this time still?
Is there a list of books that are suggested to assist in that Sweedish research? And any online swedish language classes or online swedish genealogy classes?
So hoping once restrictions are lifted I can finally go, and my work will be in good enough shape to make the trip worth it at that point.
