I need some help. I am trying to figure out where Ingrid Maria
Carlsdotter, born 18 Feb 1847 is in Ronneby in 1871.
She moved there on 20 Oct 1871. There is one Maria Carlsdotter that moved
in on 27 Oct, 1871 that might be her. I can't find her in Ancestry.com. I
think I don't understand where she is in their books. If someone could
take a look at Ancestry.com moving in record for Ronneby: Blekinge Ronneby
Sweden Inflyttning 1867 - 1883 1773.217.48300 LK-1348 , image 47, #67 to
page 316? and help me find her I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
Greetings fellow researchers --
Looking for assistance in the emigration route of Anders Magnus Andersson (b 08/08/1857 Rörsvik, Östra Fågelvik Socken, Karlstads kommun [Värmland län] Sweden d 22/12/1942 Montrose [McCook Co] SD).
Know that it had to be prior to 1883, and he may have come to NordAmerika -- and not just the USA, as some other family members emigrated through Canada.
Appreciate any and all assistance.
RE: Angered AI:10 (1865-1872) Image 17 / page 12 (AID: v16275.b17.s12,
On lines 31 and 34 are the names of two children, Alfrid b. 17 Aug 1860
and Albertina Gustafva b. 8 Feb 1863. For both children there is s note
related to their deaths in the columns to the right., I believe. I
would appreciate it if someone could tell me what it says.

Thanks to your help, I was able to follow Carl in Ancestry.com to:
Uppsala Tierp Sweden Husförhör 1886 - 1890 2267.79.40200 AI:20D UP-648 1062
It is image 141. He is at the top of the page with his wife and child. He
goes somewhere in 1890. There don't seem to be moving out records for
Uppsala but can't read the place.
Could someone please help me with where he went.
My thanks to Joy and Bo. This information was helpful. Now, however, looking at the page on Arkivdigital, it appears to list the various "books" I can already access with my Arkivdigital subscription. In my original question, I asked why the description says Los is included in the Färila books and yet I can't find Los when I go through the various Färila books page by page. Any idea if there's a discrepancy or if they're listed in a way that I can't find?

I did a copy and paste of the info in the box that was written in
Swedish and pasted it into Google Translate and below is what the
translation is. This should give you an idea of what that part of the
page said. If you need the rest of the page, you could try this on the

Arkivdigital pages where some info could be found. Hope this is
Within the Colorful Assembly, Los formed a Chapel of Law, for which
special church books were filed in 1748. By letter 1845-10-30, it was
decided that this chapter should be separated from Färila and form its
own pastorate. Additionally, the same is written in the Farilla
landmark, the newly built Brännmyra, Gammelmorsberget, Hedbäcken and
Borrsjön, partly following Ytterhogdals, Ovanåkers and Orsa parishes who
belong to Ytterhogdal: Rullbo, Össjön, Hiviåsen; Ovanåker: Kvarnberg,
Hässjaberg, Nybyn, Mansjön, Mansjöhed, Samuelsfallet, Grästjärn,
Lekstrand; Orsa Finnmark: The Knob, Hamra, Björkberg, Malungshed,
Tokåsen, Rådberg, Sandsjö, Tandsjö, Lilla Tandsjö and Fallnäset, which
formed Hamra Chapel.
To Los was transferred from Orsa Finnmark Fågelsjö city in 1856.
Acc. k. letter 1865-02-17 was ordered that the homeowner Risberget
belonged to Ytterhogdals parish and Jämtland County, while the homeman
Riberget (or Rigberget) belonged to Los Socken and Gävleborg County.
By letter 1896-01-31 the Kronopilen, Hemmyrberget and Långvattnet crowns
were transferred west from Ovanåker to Los.

I am trying quite hard to identify this Swedish emigrant:
son of one Carl Ericsson
born in Sweden about 1864
supposedly emigrated in 1889
farmed in East Valley township, Marshall Co., MN
died at Warren, MN Feb. 22, 1934
Ancestry has a couple of entries for him under naturalization records:
The Web: Minnesota, Alien Registration Index, 1918
Name: Swan Carlson
Birth Year: abt 1865
Registration Year: 1918
Registration Place: Holt, Marshall, Minnesota, USA
The Web: Minnesota, Naturalization Index, 1849-1985
Name: Mr Swan Carlson
Naturalization Year Range: 1853-1967
Residence Place: Marshall, Minnesota, USA
Spouse: Olina Carlson
I don’t know whether any of these naturalization records may be available online or whether they have any information of interest...
Any suggestions as to the identity of Swen Carlson, exact date and place of his birth, parents’ names and emigration year, would be more than welcome!
Thanks a million in advance!
Very sincerely yours,

I need a little help. I am trying to follow Carl Niclas Gustafsson, born
26 Oct 1860 in Buamåla, Vissefjärd, Kalmar, Sweden. I see him in
Kalmar Ljungby Sweden Husförhör 1871 - 1880 96.6.41400 AI:29 VS-634 page
197, image 194. #22. Carl spelled with a "K". The notes say he went to
fol. 54 in 80.
I thought fol. meant the next book. I have gone through AI:30 page by page
and don't see him.
Can someone please help me find him.
Thank you very much.

I've been puzzled by Los Parish.
In the 1840's, Los became its own
parish; formerly it was part of Färila parish. In the
index for Arkivdigital, the household records of Färila
AI:3 (1744-1763), Färila AI:4 (1764-1765), Färila AI:5a
(1766-1774) and Färila AI:5b (1751-1795), it says Los is
included in the Färila parish. However, I have gone
through those various household records page by page and I
can't find Los at all. Did it have another name?
What am I missing? Or are these records just
missing?? Or, are they in SVAR and NOT in
Arkvidigital? Los IS included in the household records
Färila AI:6a (1781-1795) and Färila AI:6b
Also, Los has a form I've never seen
before in their 1748-1753 household record. I'm having
trouble reading where Anders Anderson was born in this
entry: Los AI:1 (1748-1753) Image 30 (AID:
v136041.b30, NAD: SE/HLA/1010116). The same place is
listed on pages 25 and 28. I believe it is in

anyone can give me about these two questions.

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:
The Sweden listers are a very helpful group ready to answer questions
and do look-ups, but it is important to pose your inquiries correctly.
All messages sent to the list are archived and can be searched, so
subject lines should be specific. If I need help with a note in an
HFL (Household Examination) my subject might be Translation help,
Benjamin Andersson Öhlin b. 1831,HFL Öra, Älvsborg. This may seem
long, but it may catch the attention of someone related who reads it
on the list currently or searches the archives in the future.
Please do not change the subject line in subsequent messages related
to that subject. It breaks the connection to that string and others
following the string in the archives may not be able to follow it.
When you are asking for help you should correctly identify your source
information so that others can look at the record. In ArkivDigital
click on edit in the top menu and then click on the first option,
Copy source identifier. Then paste it into your message. This is
an example of what you will see:
