The event will be held 8 AM (ET) September 28 - 8 AM (ET) October 1. (That would be 15.00 in Finland and 14.00 in the other Scandinavian countries.)

I am honored that you are now identifying the repository for your sources. As in the case of Carl Fernqvist, I think it is important to further provide a link and identification as to what AD represents so someone may learn more.

I have no idea why I removed your links to ArkivDigital. I am glad you were able to re-add them.

i stumbled across Carl Victor Fernqvist while I was chasing errors such as Jèarna for Järna. I have no idea why I decided to add the census data to Carl's profile. It does add a snapshot of his life including birth parish which is useful for further tree growth. I also use ArkiveDigital and like its images and features. The Swedish Project encourages SVAR now that it is free and has things that AD does not. For much of my work in the Åland Islands I must use AD.

I apologize if I added or changed something on one of your profiles. I have looked at several of your profiles and you do not mention AD. SVAR is now free and most of the time can be used. I do not know what profile you are referring to with your complaint. Please let me know who it was.

Såg din kommentar på Michelsdotter-81 och lade till en egen. Tittade på profilen redan efter förra veckans error report men var litet för fed up för att göra något. Tycker den PM borde veta bättre vid det här laget.

Hej Gunnar!

Hittade en gammal kommentar från dig på Staffansdotter-21 angående stavningen av hennes namn. Vad värre är: hon har fått födelsedata och föräldrar från en annan kvinna, någon Ingrid Helena Jonsdotter. Som jag inte gitter utforska.

Säg till om du vill ha bättre grav foto än det jag tog sist. Är då och då på Norra Begravningsplatsen och fotograferar. Om jag minns rätt så var det en sen kväll jag tog foto på den grav du var intresserad av....
