Hi Lynn

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page. ~Terry~ WikiTree Mentor

Hi once again =)

Have not found a good match in the Malmö-parish archive for Gustaf Adolf Persson born 1870. What do you know? What does the church in Edam/Canada know?

But found this by the way... Canada, Soldiers of the First World War, 1914-1918

Regimental number 299017 224th Battalion NAME: Walter Wootton BIRTH: Birmingham, England RESIDENCE: Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Canada

This might be your Walter Wootton? Just got up on google trying to help you on the Persson issue... //kajjan

Hi again Lynn. I guess that it can be hard to find but maybe from the passengerlist if you have seen the list. Do you know the date and year for his emigration? Was he alone, or did he travel with his family? I will check if I can find him in the birth archives, and follow him to the boat, that is time consuming, but I'll give it a try. Best regards, Kaj

Part 2

The ***-son and the ***-dotter was put after the fathers firstname. That is the most common way to get a surname. In late 1800 that system was changed to keeping the Surname even to the next generation. I will research the swedish archive and try to find Per Persson from Malmö for you. If you like me to try, please send me a mail on

Part 1.

Hi Lynn! I'll try to help you on this, but I must however have all the facts you have got. Have you seen the passenger list of Per Persson, your great grandfathers emigration from Malmö, Sweden to America? To find his birth certificate I need the name of the parish, Malmö is a large town with several churches/parishes. In the passenger list you might find the location of his birth, residence and other usefull information. The surname forms in early Sweden was always inherited from the fathers first name. So for example your great grandfather Per got your grandfather and he will get the surname Persson after Per Persson, If your grandfather had a sister her surname was Persdotter.

I was able to find a barouque spanoza who married a mary toft in the 1700s. somehow the name spanoza was not passed on to the toft name of which the name toft being my grandmothers maiden name. why would that be. the Spanish look was passed down to my grandma who had very dark skin and brown eyes...not the traditional british feature.. would love to get some info on the whys.

I was blessed to have a grandma who lived until she was ninety-seven and shared with me many stories of her family. she knew a lot and always told me how important it was to remember the stories to pass them on to geneerations as ger mother had done for her. just recently I discovered a great grandfather was a millwright which is the same as my youngest child career. that and so much more you can learn from exploring your roots and make those ancestors real. thank-you for providing resources to do that.
