That link you have in your heading leads to a page with quite a few entries. Which ones do you want to know about and what do you want to know?

This is a household examination record spanning 1891-99. The dates are birth dates, not ages like the us censuses. They are all alive.

That ia a relief! Thank you. Im in a tizzy because one of my NYC marriage sources asks for the grandfathers, not the fathers name and Im trying to sort it out because thats the name I have for the father and Not the Grfather.  Im trying to figure if they both had the same name, or theres an error somewhere.mistake.   And the the womens fathers name (not grandfather for her) is not the one that matches the rest of the documentations. but I digress, Thanks again!

Anton Olof was born July 24, 1881 and was christened August 20 the same year. He seems to have been the fifth child of the sailor Olof Ferdinand Strömlund and his wife Cecilia Gustafsdotter (married for 11 years). Source: Swedish National Archive, Birth book for Othem parish, Gotland; https://sok.riksarkivet.se/bildvisning/00010250_00052 Othem kyrkoarkiv, Födelse- och dopböcker, SE/ViLA/23066/C I/5 (1866-1885), bildid: 00010250_00052

He became a sailor, just like his father, and he seems to have emigrated to North America in September 1903.

The father of Anton Olof was Olof Ferdinand and he was also born in Othem parish, September 14 1839. Olof Ferdinands father was Olof.

Unfortunately, the profile of Anton was not set to open so I could not add any info to his profile. Will add the source for birth on his fathers profile.
