Looking for information about relatives of Gustav Månsson

+1 vote
I am looking for information on Gustav Månsson, especially ancestors.  

Gustav was born 1809.  He married Gustava Persdotter and Ingrid-Greta Jonsdotter.  His parents are Måns Eriksson and Chatrina Nilsdotter.

I have an unsourced family tree with Gustav on it but have hit a brick wall trying to find any documents on him, either of his wifes, or his parents.

Any information helps.  Thanks!

There are a number of sources on familysearch.org (free site) but as I don’t know what country I can’t say which is correct

I am sorry to put this bluntly, but have you really added all you know to these profiles? 

If you want help with these profiles you really need to add as much info as possible to their profiles. None of them, nor their descendants, have any place locations for example. Did they all live and die in Sweden? Were they emigrants to US? Who emigrated?

It is very sad when helping with this kind of questions, giving away my free time and then presenting the finds and the person asking the questions says "I already knew that". Then the time I spent researching really is wasted time that could have been used better. All just because they did not feel like they had the time to work on the profiles and adding information. Been there, done that. 

So please give as much information that you might have and I'm sure there will be a couple of us helping with the Swedish records, we just need to know who actually lived in Sweden for example.

Hi Julia!

I noticed that you have reversed the genders of Gun Pettersson (wife) and her husband. What is worse, he is still living, according to birthday.se and Eniro.se

I have corrected the genders of Gun Bjersing and her husband and given them a few sources. The profile of the husband is now Unlisted, which WikiTree does automatically with people who are still living. It's because of privacy rules un Europe.

Please be more careful with living people in the future.

Plenty of documentation for Gustav in Käskhult Norregård, Göteryd, Kronoberg. I've found a birth record. marriage record and husförhör there.

Welcome to WikiTree. You will find that WikiTree'rs are very helpful, but you will also find that the more work/information has gone into a profile, the more likely it is that you will get help.

Tell us what you know. When and where is vital in genealogy. And please remember to state where the information comes from (Family records is very vague).
