Looking for the correct parents of Elisabet (Lisa) Johansdotter born about 1734 in Ragvaldsträsk, Skellefteå lfs, Västerbotten (AC), Sweden.

Wife of Jonas (Larsson) Västerbottning and mother of Christina Jonsdotter Vesterlund.

Supposedly the daughter of  Johan (Olofsson) Skytt and Cherstin (Olofsdotter) Hara.

Our main source at this page is her Geni profile page: https://www.geni.com/people/Elisabet-Lisa-Johansdotter/6000000010685472560

Looks like the relevant birth records have been in a fire - but perhaps this is the one: https://sok.riksarkivet.se/bildvisning/C0034374_00067

Yes, those Skellefteå records are scary with their burnt edges. I looked, and there are a few Elisabet or Lisa. I think that just looking at the birth record isn't enough.

I also looked at the Geni profile, which has a bunch of "matching trees". They all just have her birth year, not an exact date, so I suspect that in spite of this woman being researched by several persons - presumably people familiar with the family and/or the area - nobody has found a birth record for her.
I tried to find sources like birth records for her and some of her children that were on geni, and I didn't find any. Also didn't find Lisa and parents in Ragvaldsträsk although there is a household examination book. Perhaps it's incomplete.

Thanks for checking, Maria. I leafed through the household record for Ragvaldsträsk without finding her, yesterday evening, when I was tired.

It strikes me now that this may be one of the parishes where soldiers and their families are listed separately.

The records for Skellefteå (and some other parishes) are indexed and cross-referenced in the "Indiko" system, so that can be of some help.

You can download a java application at https://www.umu.se/enheten-for-demografi-och-aldrandeforskning/sokverktyg/indiko/ and Elisabet has ID 735000269.

You must of course check for yourself in the sources, but according to the index, she can be found on page 60 in volume C:2 (1735) at https://sok.riksarkivet.se/bildvisning/C0034374_00073.

According to the index, her father was Johan Olofsson, born 1712 dead 1741. Her mother was Kerstin Hara born 1703. You can also find siblings indexed there.
