>Today it's the first Advent a special day here in Sweden.
>Here is a story about it. And how to bake Gingersnaps.
How much i enjoyed hearing about the Advent customs. My husband and I have
started doing the Advent candles as it is a Lutheran custom here in
Minnesota. I was not Lutheran when I was growing up, and did not understand
the significance back then. We did however, always make Gingersnaps, as they
were my Father's favorite cookie. The recipieI use is for a cookie which is
rolled into balls, dipped in sugar and pressed down with a weight before
baking. I will have to try your way.
Thank you for sharing your memories with me.

I would suggest that you look at the 1920, 1910 and 1900 US census records
for information about when he immigrated and when/if he became an American
citizen. I would try to find him in every US census after his arrival to
learn about his family. I would also try to find his naturalization papers
if he applied for citizenship. With that information you can look for
immigration and emigration records. If he lived in a Swedish community in
the U.S.A., you may find church records that give his parish in Sweden.
You may also find a Swedish newspaper in his community with news about him.

Roger, try the California Death Index, which might tell you more about
where your ggrandfather died, also his spouse's initial. From that you
can seek an obituary. I would think with a dod of 1921 there ought to be
a nice obituary which would probably say when he came to this country
and maybe even where.
Don't forget to seek out mortuary records. When available, they can
provide information on lenghth of time in the U.S.,length of time in
"this state," parent's names, spouse's name, children's names, place of
residence, and much much more.
Also, try the Federal Censuses. You are looking for information on
whether he was a naturalized citizen. This was a question on the 1910
Census. Once you find out if he is naturalized, you can look for his
I am sure others can help you with Swedish sources, but I think it's a
good idea to get as much information as you can from the
English-language resources. It makes the Swedish search so much easier.

I have my ggrandfathers death certificate which states he
came from Sweden, no town, county, or location in Sweden is
mentioned. He was born Peter Lars Lindholm on May 17,1842
came to America 18?? DC states father's name as Mr.
Lindholm and no record of mother's name. What I know is he
lived in Sioux City Iowa and Yankton South Dakota, his
occupation was listed as a merchant. The last 16 years of
his life he lived in California where he passed away
February 9,1921. Any information as to where to commence my
search for Swedish roots will be greatly appreciated.
I found your town of Sibbarp. It is South and East of Varberg in Halland. It
seems to be a parish also . I found in that area also a small area maybe more
of a house name of Koinege. I have a very good book about the Halland area. (
mostly near Varberg) The only problem is that it is all in Swedish. I wish I
could read it all. Mostly I can just pick out the town and house names.
I am also researching in the Halland area. Mine are from the parishes of
Veddige, Varo, and Ahs. You probably need quite a blown up map to be able to
see Sibbarp. Have you tried to look up Sibbarp at the Family History Center.
They probably have the parish records from there.
I am searching for information on Otto Nelson ( Born 1858 in Karlstad,
Varmland, Sweden) and his wife Brita Persson-Nylander ( also born in Sweden
1859). They were married in 1878 before immigrating to the USA.
Otto came to the USA in 1882, landing in Boston. He settled in ND where his
wife and son, Nick joined him 5 years. later.
Otto and Brita had the following children while living in ND.
Richard born July of 1888
Sydney born May of 1892
Joseph born Nov. of 1894
Violet born May of 1898.
Brita died in the early 1900's while visiting her sister, Anna in Malo, WA.
Otto then moved to ID, where he married Emma Olson, and had two more
daughters, Josephine and Vera.
Hope someone recognizes this!

To my knowledge Kinnekulle is a mountain (if you can call a hill of 306
meters that?) in northern Västergötland, by the biggest lake in Sweden,
Vänern. Kinnekulle doesn't appear in my list of parishes, but Kinne-Kleva,
Kinne-Vedum and Kinneved is listed in that area.
Maybe someone else on this list is more familiar with this particular area
and can tell you more?
All the best,

Today it's the first Advent a special day here in Sweden.
Here is a story about it. And how to bake Gingersnaps.
Warming up for Christmas
By the end of November it is time for friends or colleagues to gather
at a restaurant one evening for the "Christmas dinner table", a buffet
combining traditional Christmas fare with the delights of the ordinary
smörgåsbord. In recent years too, the Christmas dinner table has
become a popular attraction on board the ferries to and from Finland,
Germany and Denmark.
In peoples homes the approach of Christmas is signified, for
example, by getting out the Advent candlestick, which is often a
little box with four candle holders embedded in moss and lingonberry
sprigs. The first candle is lit on the First Sunday in Advent and
allowed to burn down by one quarter. Next Sunday it is time for the
second candle, and so on, until by the fourth Sunday the first candle
has burnt right down and the last one has been started. This is a
custom, but it was inspired by the "Advent trees" of Germany and
became widespread in the 1920s.
During Advent many windows are hung with an "Advent star", the
original version of which, made of red paper, was introduced in the
1930s. Today one often sees more sophisticated versions of straw, wood
shaving or metals. This custom also originated in Germany, but in
recent years it has begun to be overtaken by the stepped candlesticks
which also shine from the windows of companies
Germany also invented the Advent calendar, nowadays called the
Christmas calendar and first introduced in Sweden in 1932. Later, with
the production of tie-in programmes, first on the radio and then on
television, sales of Advent calendars broke all records.
The celebration of Advent, then, is of fairly recent origin. Its
only in our own time that church services on the First Sunday in
Advent have joined the early morning services on Christmas Day in
topping the years attendance figures. Common to many aspects of
modern Advent celebrations is the part played by candles, and this is
usually quoted to instance a 20th century "candle revival", with
"living light" providing a counterpoise to the cold lighting
technology which, towards the end of the last century, superseded the
old, mellower light sources.
350 g (12 oz.) butter
450 ml (2 cups) sugar
200 ml (1 cup) dark corn syrup
1½ tablespoons ginger
1½ tablespoons cardamom
1½ tablespoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon cloves
300 ml (1½ cups) whipping cream
1 tablespoon baking soda
900 g (9 cups) sifted all-purpose flour
Cream the butter together with sugar, syrup and spices. Add the cream
whipped to a soft foam.
Mix the bakin soda with half of the flour and add to the batter.
Gradually add the remaining flour.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surfase and knead until smooth.
Return the dough to the bowl, cover and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat oven to 200 degree C (400 degree F). Roll out a little of the
dough at a time
directly on a large baking sheet with nonstick finish. Roll the doufh
as thin as possible and cut with desired besuit cutters into rounds,
hearts, stars, pigs or other figures. Remove excess dough from the
Bake for 5 minutes, or until beatifully brown. Set the baking sheet on
a wire rack; remove the biscuits when cool.
If desired, decorate the biscuits with white icing. Beat together 400
ml (2 cups)
powdered sugar, 1 egg white and 1 teaspoon white vinegar. Fill an
icing tube and garnish the biscuits. Or decorate with blanched almonds
Makes 300 to 400 gingersnaps.

According to a letter my father received from a distant
relative (now deceased) my gggg-grandfather owned a shoe
factory in Gränna does anyone by chance have any information
on this or where I should go to get information? The time
frame on this would be the 1830's to 1860's
"Nels Engvall was an energetic and fairly will-to-do man.
He owned an inn as well as a shoe factory. The factory was
situated in Gränna (prov. Smäland) and the inn was probably
situated in Lekeryd. I don't know if he ran both
enterprises at the same time. However, the shoe factory in
Granna consisted of a large building with a considerable
amount of employees. Due to somewhat carelessaly granted
security engagements he was forced to leave all his
property. His creditors arranged a forced sale of the
property in order to secure their claims. According to the
records a man in the vicinity bought everything for som 1/3
of the real worth, which makes one suspect, that the whole
affair was a planned action to misuse his goodharted

Yankton South Dakota was in the federal census for that
region in 1875 and 1880. Then he became lost. Last
information available is that he married a second time in
either 1913/4 to Christine Stephanson who may have
immigrated in 1904/5 from Eneborg. Peter died in February
1921 and is buried in Forest Lawn in Glendale California.
Ellen is also buried there and Christine died in 1935 in Los
Angeles. she lived with Peter at 2155 Norcross. Christine
had a sister names Sara who wrote to her at her Portland
Oregon home in 1905. Would appreciate any information
I have several post cards written to Christine between 1904
and 1929 several are in Swedish. Is there an easy to
translate the information on these cards?

SWEDEN ROOTSWEB USER GUIDELINE
I'd like to take the time to welcome you to the Swedish List and share
information that will help make your research efforts more successful.
Please keep this message filed for future reference.
FIRST: It is important to know that the letters with diacritical
marks are separate letters in the Swedish alphabet and
placed at the end, and all lists are alphabetized accordingly. When
people emigrate these letters are altered in both peoples names and
places which may make locating your ancestor in Sweden a little more
difficult. They can be formed in the following ways:
FOR PC USER: make sure the Num (Number) Lock on your key pad is on,
then hold the Alt key and the following numbers from the number pad:
Alt-142 = Ä Alt-132 = ä Alt-143 = Å Alt-134 = å Alt-153 = Ö
Alt-148 = ö
FOR MAC USERS:
The following keystrokes will make the letters on a Mac
- alt(option)-a / - shift-alt(option)-a / - alt(option)-u and
then a / - alt(option)-u and then shift-a / - alt(option)-u and
then o / - alt(option)-u and then shift-o
SECOND: An understanding of the patronymic naming system is also
essential. Use this link to learn about Swedish naming practices:
THIRD: It is very important to learn how to do Swedish research and
what records and resources are available. Use this link to learn
FOURTH: There are many online sights with online Swedish records. The
following link has a list:
One site not listed is the Stockholm Archives. It can be found using
the following link:
FIFTH: The records are in Swedish but you can find your way around by
learning a few basic terms, fdde = birth, dd = dead, vigsel =
marriage. For a more comprehensive list of vocabulary words key to
your records search use the following two links:
SIXTH: For those interested in learning more about the Swedish
language, see note, use this link:
SEVENTH: There are many CD collections available for emigration,
censuses, death records, etc. They can be purchased but many on the
list already own the CDs and will do look-ups for free. This link is
one site offering them for sale:
