Research Notes

  • Tveta AI:6 has her last name as Nilsdotter.
  • Probably the Maria Sophia born on November 24, 1814 to Anna Lisa Darlberg. [17]
    • Suggestions:
      • As the surname is Johansdotter it could be an indication that father was Johan. In the birth book[17] it says "Fader okänd" = father unknown. Mother is "Pigan Anna Lisa Karlberg på Döderhultsvik"
        • TODO 1: find her in the household records
        • TODO 2: try to have household records in time order ==> you can easy see if you have some gaps
        • TODO 3: if you dont find her in the household records start with last known and go backwards
        • TODO 4: In the death records it can say parents
        • TODO 5: In the estate and inventory for the mother it can say were the children live (Estates are always done if they not are poor...) so find the candidates to mother and try to find the estate and inventory
        • TODO 6: In the birth records of the children you have "Faddrar" that is often people related to the family ==> it could be the father and mother. Try to find all birth records and find what faddrar they have
      • I added a query at Anbytarforum Dödershult
Sälgö-1 07:31, 20 March 2017 (EDT) video with my first confused thoughts. After playing around with the profile I am a little bit more confused but should test to research the potential mother and follow her....

There was one Carlberg on one of Maria Sophia's children's records. Birth record for Carolina Sophia, Fliseryd (H) C:4 page 254 4th entry. Sophia Carlberg, I think it says the wife of (milk something? -- I don't speak swedish) Gab(riel?) Peterson.

Thank you so much for helping. Is that Anna Lisa Karlberg at 24:05? https://youtu.be/ng4XL3TzcWA?t=24m5s

I think I found Anna Lisa's birth record: Döderhult C:4 p. 68, 2nd one on the page.

Since the free weekend is over, I'm stuck with Family Search's scans for now (with no household examinations index D:).

But I'll gather a list of the godparents of Maria Sophia's children and I'll try to identify them.
