I found the estate inventory for an ancestor today, and it is very difficult to read. I'm mostly interested in the living heirs. He got 15 children (as I have found so far). If I'm right it says in the inventory
"närvarande änkan dygdesamma hustru Karna Nilsdotter ? ? ? barn och arfvingarna.
Sonen Nils 22 år gammal ut från giftet gamla
dottern ? Hanna gift med Jeppa Larsson i Tullstorp.
af? ? giftet
sonen Lars 14 år gammal
dito Jöns 11 år
dito Nils 6 år
dito Per 2 år"
and then there are a couple of sentences I don't understand.
Could anyone verify if I understood the above somewhat correctly?
Thanks / Maria
Edit: here's the arkivdigital id for the estate inventory:
Vemmenhögs häradsrätt (M) FIIb:9 (1749-1760) Bild 77 / sid 11 (AID: v160168.b77.s11, NAD: SE/LLA/10068)
Edit again: is it normal for him to have two living sons called Nils? I've only noticed children getting names of dead siblings. But the two Nils' have different mothers.
