She grew up in Hylte municipality in the county of Halland and the province of Småland, Sweden. From 1976 - 1983 the family lived at Segelsbo, then they moved to Villa Ekebo in the town of Hyltebruk.

Hello Lena,

I think we are related. I attempted to compare my GEDmatch Kit Number T663704 with yours (T688783) and it was unsuccessful. It simply stated that your GEDmatch Kit Number was not in database.

I then compared my Kit Number with Lara Svensson’s and we matched on several chromosome sections but we are distantly related. I think you and I are closer.

In short, I would like to merge my recently added 4th great grandfather Olof Svensson with yours but first, I would like to confirm our unsuccessful GEDmatch comparison when you resolve your GEDmatch Kit Number, and also get your approval.

Hello Lena,

We wrote to you about the check-in for Profile Improvement Project (PIP) a couple of weeks ago. Would you like to continue in Biography Team Level 1 where we have placed you? That's the Team that works on improving profiles from both your own watchlist and projects you are involved with to Level 1 of the PIP Profile Standards.

If you do not wish to participate in the Project, please let us know. If we don’t hear from you within 7 days we will remove you from the Project, but we will welcome you back at any time. We would like to hear from you with any ideas or suggestions.

Dear Lena,

The Profile Improvement Project (PIP) is performing its first annual check-in with our project members. Please review the following and let us know if you are content where we have placed you or would like to be more involved.

We are in the process of transitioning to a team structure. There will be three participant PIP Teams to start -- The Maintenance Category Team, the Unknowns Team, and the Biography Team. There is also the Voyage Team which guides new Voyagers. See the Profile Improvement Project Teams for a brief outline of each team.

You're currently identified as a member of the Biography Team Level 1, working on profiles from your own watchlist, from projects in which you are involved, and whatever else you find. Biography Teams Levels 2 and 3 will work on designated profiles for notables (Level 3) and everyday people (Level 2). Please let us know if you would like to help with a higher-level Bio Team or one of the other Teams.

You joined the Project before the Voyage started in late 2018. We would like to invite you to consider a "fast track" Voyage, especially if you would like to work at a higher level on the Biography Team. If you’re interested, choose a profile from your own watchlist from the 19th or 20th century, that you have completed to the best of your ability and compare it to the Voyage Biography Standards. If your profile is at Level 2 or better, include a link to the profile in your response to this check-in for a “fast track” review.

We would also like to invite you to join the email GoogleGroup and text chat Discord channel for our project. If you request to join our GoogleGroup, please be sure to include your Wiki ID. Neither is required; we also use the Profile_Improvement tag in G2G for Project announcements.

We thank you for all you do to help the Profile Improvement Project and WikiTree. The Project’s mission is to:

Make profiles beautiful! We clean up messy biography sections and sources, and try to set standards for attractive, useful, and well-written biographies, starting with those we manage.

We know you’re working on profiles *smile* We would like to hear about successes you’ve had toward the Project’s goals. We would also appreciate any feedback you might have to help us improve the Project. Please share your thoughts in a reply to this comment or privately via private message to either of us.

Hej Lena, jag vet inte om din mailadress du har i googlegruppen för Sverigeprojektet är aktuell så jag skriver här istället.

När man lägger till nya kategorier bör de innehålla en beskrivning på minst 50 tecken som beskriver syftet med kategorin annars kommer det att generera ett fel i databasen, se https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:DBE_8062

Skulle du vilja vara snäll att lägga till text när du skapar nya kategorier? Tack på förhand.

Hej Lena!

Du är manager för tre profiler som har konstiga tecken istället för å, det genererar ett fel i databasen. Skulle du vilja vara snäll och ändra LNAB på https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Aresp%C3%AAang-1, https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Aresp%C3%AAang-2 och https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Aresp%C3%AAang-3 Tack på förhand.

As one of the co-leaders of the European Aristocrats project, I'm messaging to inform you that we are removing the "House Assignments" from our project structure. You are absolutely still welcome to work on the profiles from the families that you chose, we are simply removing the official House Assignments as, for the most part, people choose to work on whichever profiles interest them. We're glad to have you in the project and we hope that you continue to work with us!

Regards, Amy Utting

Hi, Lena! I sent you a private message last week concerning joining the Bolin Name Study. Please let me know if you received it. Thanks!

RE: Bengtsdotter-371. I saw your note (from 2015) about not giving a married name to a Swedish woman before 1900 but since I had her patronymic maiden name as primary - I left it since I know she was referenced as Anderson (no SS) - I've finally made contact with descendants and will learn more from them soon. One sent me this as the birth record for her.I cannot find anything on her parents etc. and this might be a goldmine of info. I can't read it.

Would you be willing to translate the birth entry for Lena in its entirety and see that the info gets into whichever profiles - I will be working on the family in the US but really don't feel comfortable doing the processing of this record. https://sok.riksarkivet.se/bildvisning/C0011628_00069#?c=&m=&s=&cv=68&xywh=2575%2C1847%2C4317%2C23

Hi Lena,

I'm Amy, and I've recently become a co-Leader of the European Aristocrats project. I am currently re-organising the House Assignments (including assigning a Free-Space Page rather than a category page), and I wanted to know whether you wish to continue as a house manager for the Vasa and Yngling houses. I've previously sent a PM, however it must have gotten lost en route to you :) Happy WikiTreeing!

Regards, Amy Utting

Hi Lena,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,


Leader, Global Cemeteries
