I am searching the roots of my grandmother, born Ida Christina Olsdatter, July 24, 1858.  Her bible shows the following name, but is unassociated: "Branddemala".

I am new to geneological research so I am essentially just getting started.

Thanks, John Olson

Just want to add a few parts to the answer from Frank Gill, 

A source for this is from the church books, Jämjö CI:7 (baptation register for the parish Jämjö) page 443.

godfather/mother are Nils Olsson and his wife Cecilia Petersdotter (from lönnemåla)

The parents lived in Öfraboda, part of Jämjö parishhttp://www.diginpast.se/ostkanten/eng/socknar/jemjo/

The parents lived at that time in an area called Övremåla, (almost on the mid top on this map of Jämjö parish 1870) http://www.diginpast.se/ostkanten/kartor/swe/jemj.html with Brändamåla (which I assume is Branddemala that you mentioned) slightly to the left.

Her family moved to Brändamåla when she was 10 years old (source Jämjö AI:21 page 361).
