Effective immediately
I'll be back in 10...
(but I'm not promising minutes)
Sorry, but it might be a while until I can get back to you.

Due to illness in the family, I might not be answering mail as promptly as I usually do.

I'm born, raised and living in the west coast area of Sweden.

Would like to connect with others that share DNA and perhaps we could connect our branches of the big tree. Perhaps even some "unknown fathers" could be sorted out.

Most of my ancestors are from:

  • Älvsborg county parishes
    • Erska
    • Östad
    • Långared
    • Tranemo
    • Kilanda
    • Dannike
  • Skaraborg county parishes
    • Istrum
    • Eggby
    • Skånings Åsaka
    • Forshem
    • Fullösa
  • Jönköping county parishes
    • Ås
    • Bolmsö
  • Västmanland county parishes
    • Skinnskatteberg
    • Gunnilbo
    • Ramsberg
    • Köping

My known emigrants:
Karl Johan Andersson from Erska parish, Älvsborg county and his wife
Elin Elisabeth (Ellen) Englund from Nedre Ullerud parish, Värmland county (no DNA connection)

Johan August Berg

Anna Karlsdotter

Johannes Jonasson aka John B Johnson

Anna Sofia Lindgren

Anna Mathilda Andersson
Gustav Anders Andersson
Augusta Josefina Olsson

And perhaps the sailor who never returned home in 1920's. Don't know if he died in foreign port or jumped ship.

I'm also working on Swedish Nobles and Royals in cooperation with Project Sweden, trying to sort out the families and add info to their biographies. I guess it will be a commitment for the next ten years or so, there's a lot of profiles to clean up and connect to the big tree.

I have a question that Frank Gill can't answer.

Why would the son of Erik Jakobsson be named Anders Eriksson Hjort ? He would usually be named simply Anders Eriksson 1837-1894. I haven’t encountered anything like this before, but there must be a simple explanation? Bob Loov (Loov-1)

posted by Robert Loov
I'm sorry, I do not know who Frank Gill is. About your question about the "extra name" for Anders Eriksson, my first thought is that Hjort would have been a soldiers name. Sweden Project has some pages explaining Swedish names; and you can find the one about soldiers names here;

Could you please provide the profile ID for Anders Eriksson Hjort or perhaps a link so I can check his profile?

posted by Maggie Andersson
Frank Gill is someone who suggested I contact you.

I'm sure you've provided the right answer to my question. It was a ridiculous question since I'm very familiar with soldier's names. I inherited one from my father who was originally a Johansson!

All is well. Bob Loov

vet någon om det finns någon sida där man kan kolla församlingstillhörighet? jag hittar inte i Riksarkivet någon som är född 1929 vars far var banskötare/stins. familjen bodde i en liten fattig stuga där nu Sundbybergs station ligger. när mamman dog i cancer fosterhemsplacerades pojken hos en välbärgad familj som bodde i Duvbo. han var då ca 2 år gammal. vid vuxen ålder adopterades han av fosterföräldrarna. jag kan pappans namn, mammans namn och adoptivföräldrarnas med undantag för mammans död 1931 hittar jag inte någon av dom i kyrkböckerna för Sundbybergs församling. Stort tack i förväg för hjälpen

mvh, Edwin

Är han född i Sundbyberg 1929 borde han finnas i den församlingen. Sundbybergs församling bildades 1909-05-01 genom utbrytning ur Bromma församling.

Dock gjorde jag en sökning i Sveriges Befolkning (Arkiv Digital) och där står det att Per Olov Rinneman är född i Engelbrekts församling, Stockholms stad.

Och biologiska familjen återfinns i Spånga, det verkar bara vara Per Olof som flyttar till Sundbyberg

Hi Maggie,

Subject: Sweden Project, Record of Marriage Last names in 1554

I'm working on cleaning up GEDcom's. For Soop, searched Family Search and found

I don't know how Sweden recorded married names in 1554. And, I don't know what the 'd. y.' stands for after her husband's name. Perhaps, that's part of his name, if so, will this trigger any WikiTree negativity?

Thank you. Paula

Hi Paula, thanks for cleaning up the profile.

Swedish women did not take their husbands last name until 1900's (sometime around 1920 if I remember correctly).

The d.y. is short for "den yngre" meaning "the younger", implying that there would be someone older with the exact same name. Not necessarly a father, sometimes perhaps a grandfather or another older relative. I have not seen this trigger any errors in DBE lists.

Hi Maggie,

thanks for the info. But since when is familysearch not a reliable source?

Thanks for your message, I have personally gone through the profiles at FamilySearch painstakingly I might add with the intent to be able to import the information here through the WikiTreeX app advertised here on WT.

If there is sources to attach on FS I have done so, so it is for the most time not only linked to another unsourced tree but to actual sources.

I uploaded a gedcom in 2014 which excluded all sources I had found back then. I only have FamilySearch as source for some of these older profiles. I presume WT prefer to have me source the profiles to FamilySearch, rather than have me not to source them at all?
