Biography

If I don't answer, it MAY be my Internet connection that is down (my computer will need a replacement soon).

I do not do pre-1500 and I'm not too keen on nobility and notables either.
On the other hand I'm passionate about Swedish church records and love using them for research on my own kinship network as well as the kin of others.

I have been doing genealogy since the end of 2011, when I had been retired for about six months. It'll take me a long time to get all that I have gathered since then into the WikiTree - particularly since I'm prone to get distracted from my own stuff by other people's riddles.

Currently working on:

  • I have previously filled in my own direct ancestors in Västergötland (quick-and-dirty from my notes). I spent the whole of 2015 researching Västergötland. Now, in 2018 I am returning to do things properly.
  • After working diligently on the above, but still not having transferred all of my research to WikiTree, I had the idea of revisiting the branch tips of my tree, to check the balance, so to speak. So this is my current work-in-progress, as concerns my own kin.
  • Error 912, Swedish patronym SSON for female - before circa 1850 daughters of the common folk were -dotter of their fathers. I would like WikiTree to be correct in this naming pattern. We started working on this in Sept 2016. Still keeping an eye on it. Also working on the Suggestion List for Sweden in general.

Where my ancestors came from

The ancestors of my paternal grandfather back to the 1600s all came from a quite limited area in Västergötland, centered in the southern part of Viste hundred. They were self-owned farmers, or farmers on contract to a manor. I haven't entered much of that here yet (although I spent my research time in 2015 almost exclusively on this kinship network). My great grandfather Johannes was the one to leave the area to become a school teacher not far from Gothenburg. He brought his young wife Anna from the home village and adopted the family name Ekeblad, thereby leaving the patronymic system in the 1880s. Anna was one of The Last Dotters.

I'm not very interested in the genealogy of the expired noble Ekeblad lines - we are not related, and Eva Ekeblad isn't me. It MAY have been a cheeky gesture from my great grand and his brothers when they picked the name. But they were also not the only ones. I once did a little study of this, and there are about ten different Ekeblad families, who picked the name between 1840 and 1890.

The ancestors of my maternal grandparents came from the iron making districts in Bergslagen or from the farming country around lakes Mälaren and Hjälmaren. Since my mother was born in Arboga, that's where they all gravitated - mostly by marrying from parish to parish, going south or west by the generation. I just love Bergslagen, particularly Skinnskatteberg parish where I have shared ancestry with several WikiTreers - and the church records go far back.

Among the iron makers there were some immigrants from Germany or Wallonie back in the 16- and 1700s. There were also some internal migrants - supernumerous and enterprising sons and daughters from down in Västergötland moving north to the iron frontier in the 1600s. The surname of my morfar and the maiden name of my mormor were both "frozen" patronymics - Persson and Pettersson. I have gathered the freeze points in my family tree on a free-space page: Space:Freeze_points_in_Evas_tree

The ancestors of my paternal grandmother are the most mixed bunch. Her mother was descended from crofters in Uppland. It was the grandparents of my farmor who left the crofter's life for Stockholm, where Per Olsson adopted the surname Lindgren circa 1859 and became a customs officer. In the service he was sent north to the coast of Hälsingland with his family, and spent the 1870s there, before returning to Stockholm - leaving my great grandmother Augusta, who had found a husband up north. Gustav Lindström. The father of Gustav, in his turn, was born in Rättvik, but had migrated with his father and siblings to Hälsingland in 1836. They were charcoal makers, who became sawmill workers when the market and industry changed. Håman Olof Olsson and his brothers left the patronymic system and the farm naming system of Dalarna in the 1840s and adopted the surname Lindström. Olof Lindström had all his ancestors in Rättvik - and this is a part of my tree which I have worked on entering here. The wife of Olof Lindström was Apollonia Nilsdotter Brodin with a fascinating ancestry consisting of smiths and charcoal makers in southern Hälsingland. This branch was my experiment with a GEDCOM import and may still suffer from the effects.

Eva, Anna Stina Pontusdotter's father is marked as uncertain because DNA does not support the family tree that I assembled based on Swedish records. Jan Andersson's parentage has been proven thru DNA, but hers has not. Pontus Magnusson is her father on paper, but this is not confirmed thru DNA.

Hi Eva, I just discovered your tree here on WikiTree and I am so excited. I was reading my grandfather Carl E. Hager's diary from 1932 (from a trip to Gothenberg), and he writes lovingly of his cousin Holger. I understand from my father they were very close. My great-grandfather Alfred was Anna Bjorkstrom's (Holger's mom) brother. I am just beginning to get interested in genealogy, and I want to thank you for compiling this incredible history. You have so much information on Johan Hager's genealogy, and I can't wait to start reading it. I will definitely keep a close eye on your page. Thank you again! –Nichlolas ("Cole") Hager

One big problem with LDS records is that their transcribers often give women the male patronymic rather than the usual female surname. My family started to sporadically adopt the male patronymic for everyone in the early 1800s. It is sometimes difficult to determine which is correct because different records give different surnames. My grgrgrandfather's name appears 5 or 6 different ways. His first name was often different as well. Does Wikitree have formal guidelines for this?

And I was never sure which Gustav Larson (there are a lot) was the right one for immigration. Thank you very much. Please feel free to add any other information you find. Augusta was born in Sweden. Her father emigrated to America and she and her mother followed. She ran away from her father's house after she arrived to avoid marrying an older man and ended up in Butte. Maybe to be with her brothers (family story). I would love to know more about them.

Thank you for your help with the profile for Johan Persson. Could you please edit the profile for Per Jansson because I am not sure if I understood the details. Again, thank you for your oversight!

Really neat! Through marriage when they arrived in the US....some of them came up to Canada. I think it would be good to maybe add the story on the message part of the page or the 'memories' section, since I think it would be a good part to add :)

Thank you so much for posting on my profile for Christensen-3155. So far, I am working on cleaning up the profiles for my great great grandmothers family group. I noticed the naming problem right away and was overwhelmed. After merging trees on Ancestry in my earlier research days, I have my work cut out for me in correcting information. When I asked my cousin about it he explained -dotter and -son. Any help and feedback is well received.

Sincerely,

Elisa

Hi Eva,

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great!

Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors?

Let me know. I can help you figure out if there's a project and introduce you to the project leaders.
