Biography

Anders was born in 21 sep 1764 Westerstad[1] in Skåne[2].(We havn't found this confirmed in the books from Skåne. Sälgö-1 07:15, 13 September 2014 (EDT))[3]

Tränkatorpet

In 1800-1812 Anders lived with his wife Maja in a soldier croft[4] (swe. soldattorp) where he had one child Anna Maja [5][6]. In Anders second marriage with Carin Sköld he got at least 2 children Anna Lotta and Carl Åke[7]. We have seen in the books that Carl Åke moved to Stockholm and later to North America.(We haven't followed the household records in Stora Åby to see when he moved to Stockholm. Looks like they left the soldier house (swe. soldattorp) 1810. Sälgö-1 08:40, 13 September 2014 (EDT))

Location of 19. swedish Tränkatorpet where they lived

Livgrenadjär nr 79 Wadstena Compagni - Wallby

Anders was a livgrenadjär[8] at Wadstena Compagni. We find him as livgrenadjär nr 79 Wallby in GMR 1791[9], GMR 1793 [10], GMR 1799[11]

Livgrenadjär nr 92 Wadstena Compagni - Jernstad

PDF about beeing a soldier and how they lived and also a little about Vadstena kompani. We have found Anders Lundberg in the General Muster Rolls GMR for 1803 and 1806 as soldier nr 92.[13][14][15]. In the GMR for 1803 it says he is 169cm tall and has been in duty 11 years. After 30 years in duty you get a pension(gratialist). In the household books from 1826-1835 it says he is a former[16] Lifgrenadjär and that he receives pension (gratialist[7][17]). As said you normally get that after 30 years in duty ==> 1803 he had 11 years done ==> 19 more years so then we can assume he starts to receive money abt. 1822.

Marriage Carin Sköld

2 May 1830 he married the second wife Carin Sköld. The marriage records are in book Stora Åby C:3 (1818-1852) Image 253 / page 497 (AID: v40779.b253.s497, NAD: SE/VALA/00351) see Arkiv Digital photo of the book[18]

We find Anders and Carin in Järnstad Sörgård ägor 1814-1820[19], 1826-1835[20]

Died

Anders passed away in 14 may 1834 in Stora Åby in Tuberculosis (swedish Lungsot)[2][21]. In 20 may 1834 an Estate inventory was done see Arkiv DIgital photos of Lysings häradsrätt FII:32 (1833-1834) Image 383 / page 701 (AID: v77082.b383.s701, NAD: SE/VALA/01556).

Research Notes

  • Birth date/Birth Place September 21, 1764:
in Household 1826-1835[7] it is difficult to read if it is 1764 or 1769. If we check in the birthbook there is a Anders born 1756 19/8 son to Åke Tuvesson and Elna Nilsdotter,living in Farborg.
Idea could be to follow Anders L backward in the household books and try to find when he moved into Stora Åby and moved out from Skåne....
In a pdf document that is a inventory of soldier

croft [4] it says on page 2

JÄRNSTAD BRUNSGÅRD SOLDATTORP
1800 – 1812
Livgrenadjär: Anders Lundberg född 1769 i Skärv.
Hustrun: Maja Persdotter född 1756 i Heda.
Barn: Anna Maja född 1794.
That is Anders Lundberg with his first wife and it says 1769 Skärv
  • Who is the Father and mother
    • it is a comment in Household 1826-1835[7] of father/mother. I asked people on FB and they think it says
fad. hette Åka Thuasson, H (?) Christensa
english Fathers name Åka Thuasson, wife Christensa
Left page in the household book has:
Torp - Lifgr (livgrenadjär that is a type of soldier see above) And(ers) Åkason Lundberg
Comment Åkason is a patronymicon that could indicate the father is Åke or Åka
  • Historical maps. There are a lot of

Historical Maps Scanned historical maps available at the Swedish Lantmäteriverket they also have documents regarding how the villiage was changed (eg. Laga skifte). A search on the area at Stora Åby

  • Having a soldier in the family tree in Sweden is good as that is a profession that in the Swedish society is well documented. Soldiers, priests and some other professions like blacksmiths are good documented. There are special books like Soldatforska Lars Ericsson Wolke (eng. Soldier research) that are a good tutorials on how to proceed. You also have in Stockholm Krigsarkivet (eng. Military archive wiki)
Some steps how to do military genealogy
    • Location - what regiment he belonged to. In Sweden we had a system called Indelningsverket (eng. Allotment system) which means that they were payed by the farmers. All farmers in the village built a house for the soldier and paid the soldier. A good source to understand the life of a soldier is to read the book of Wilhem Moberg called Rasken that describes the life of a soldier ( He has also written classic books about emigrants to the new country Utvandrarna)
In our case Anders L was a livgrenadjär[23] at Wadstena Compagni. Some books from Wadstena Compagni are digitalized and available from Arkiv Digital ex.
see also page Examples of Notations in General Muster Rolls (GMR) . GMR was a book used when the soldiers were gathered for inspections and some training. My understanding is that this was done every 3 year if there was no war.
    • Soldier contracts - a contract written what the soldier should get and how long he should be in duty - a copy of them can be available in Krigsarkivet (eng. Military archive wiki)
    • Soldierhouse (swe. soldattorp) was the most important part of the contract. When he was dismissed or died they had to leave the house. The house was documented in a syneprotokoll. A document written when the owner of the house was changed[24] and the farmers, soldier was present when this document was created. Those documents can be available in the Krigsarkiv (eng. Military archive wiki) or Landsarkiv.
    • Gratial or pension - A soldier who has been in duty more than 30 years got gratial if he had done a good work and was not punished. Normally a soldier needed to earn some extra money to survive. Information about gratialist can probably be found for Anders Lundberg at Krigsarkivet: Vadstena krigsmanshuskassa.
