Needing help finding Anders Nilsson, born 12 jul 1836 inEkeby, Ostergotland, Sweden.
His wife, CharlottaJohansdotter, born 27 jun 1845 in Stallberga Sjottugan, Saby Parish, Jongkoping, Sweden.
Son; Axel WilhelmAndersson, born 2 Feb 1873 in Tenbacken, Saby, Jongkoping. Daughter; Claes EmilAndersdotter, born 10 Apr 1871 in Tenbacken.
Son; Jonas FredricAndersson, born 15 Feb 1876 in Tenbacken.
Son; Oscar AdolfAndersson, born 23 Oct 1874 Tenbacken.
Daughter; Esther Charlotta Andersdotter, born 19 Apr 1865 inTenbacken.
In the 1876 moving out records, 251.75.66500 Moving out 1870– 1881, Saby parish, page 353, line 131 shows 4 males and 3 females moving toNorth America.
My dilemma is that I can’t find a record of where they leftfrom and where in Americathey were going so I can try to find them in the Federal Census records here.Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Archive Digital also lists 1818 as the 1st household records. It does list some catechetical records available from 1638-1730. Not sure what would be in those.

I am trying to find the birthdate, place and parents for Anna Markuscotter,
born 16 May 1842. The HFL below says she was born in Urshult. I can't find
Urshult birth records for that year. They are probably with another
perish, but I don't know which one. It looks like Anna may have came from
Denmark in the notes. I did find a birth record for Anna with the correct
date in My Heritage that is from Denmark. Could someone please take a look
at the HFL or perhaps find her birth record.

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:
Jönköpings Sofia AI:16 (1861-1867) Image 14 / page 5 (AID:
v23199.b14.s5, NAD: SE/VALA/00171)
If you are using another source, such as Ancestry, state that the info
is from Ancestry and look for identifying info similar to what is
shown above. Those trying to help can usually find the info if they
are using a different source. If info is from another type of web
page, include the web address for the page.
When responding to a message, please delete all irrelevant info not
related to your response, signatures, previous messages, etc. You may
just cut and paste the specific sentence/paragraph that you are
responding to. You will see good examples of this in the messages of
If you are receiving the Digest, which includes a number of message,
do not just hit reply when responding to a message. Hit reply, copy
& paste the subject line of the message to which you are replying and
be sure to delete all the other messages in that digest.
There is one additional page, SweGGate, created by a former list
administrator, Dr Fredrik Haeffner. Though some links are dead, it
has not been updated since 2006, it is chocked full of valuable
information and well worth exploring. You will find the page here:
You will find links for various map resources here:
The records are kept under the old map designations, not the new ones,
so knowing where these places were is invaluable in finding records.
It must be noted that locations recorded in genealogical records
should be what they were at the time of an event, not what they are
When messages become personal, discussions unrelated to the subject
line and not relevant to research, they should be taken offline.
Last, but not least, if you wish to switch from list to digest,
unsubscribe search the list archives, see the information at the end
of this message for list addresses. If you are switching your
subscription from one email address to another, or from list to digest
or digest to list, unsubscribe from the old address before subscribing
with the new address.
