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)

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.

HI Maggie - I am trying to add you to the profile for Månsson-498 but I am not having any luck.

What is the email address for the Sweden project?

Thanks, Susan

Thank you, Maggie, for welcoming me to the Sweden Project. I appreciate the additions you made to Karin Svensdotter's profile and for introducing me to the free images on the Swedish National Archives site. I have a lot of info on my Swedish ancestors--and a lot to learn.

MAGGIE ANDERSSON .... If there were a 5 star badge, you would most certainly have earned it. Every time I see the sources you were able to attach (translate and explain) to my great grandfather's profile, I am in awe. I finally got to the U-tube video link (did you give me that?) - That also earns extra kudos. Relatives still live on Vabranna land and lived at Vabranna #3, #4, and #5 and Sprangskulla locations in Veddige. The u-tube presenter hit so close to the target multiple times. I truly feel that both of you went beyond all expectations as collaborators. Life 101 gets in the way at times ... Better late than never (Your initial help came in 2016 and I am finally showing my appreciation ... THANKS FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART for all of your help.
