The making of this page has been a great tool for untangling some confusing relationships: families swapping homes, pairs of brothers marrying pairs of sisters - and "everybody" being named Lars or Karin. It doesn't help that there is a gap in the marriage records for Fellingsbro between 1671 and 1690 and a gap in the death records between 1675 and 1690. Nor does it help that wives are usually only mentioned by first name (or no name) in the cathechism examination records for the early 1700s. From 1746 things are better.


1643-1660: Head of household Erich Olufsson

1660-1682: Head of household widow Elin

  • 1675 cathechism examination record: hustru Elin with children and a farm hand.[5]
  • 1678: Brita Larsdotter marries and moves to Kilen
  • 1680s: Skölberga still owned by the Appelbom family
  • 1682 taxation record: Elin listed for the last time. Olof also present.[6]

1683 - New people from Gillberga

1689 - the swap

1700-1710: Brothers-in-law Lars and Anders

1710: First cousins Olof and Kerstin
