1) In the 1900 Swedish census that I find on the Swedish Archives site, my
gr. gr. grandfather is listed as a Utjordsägare. I know he was a farmer.
Is this a type of farmer?
--- An "utjord" was an out-lying piece of a farm, and an
owned only this part, not a full-size farm like a "hemmansägare" did.
2) In this same 1900 census, my family is listed as being in Östervåla,
Vastmanland län. However, for the majority of records (including the SCB
births, marriages, deaths 1860–1945 and the Church Records) that I find on
the Swedish Archives site, they are listed as being in Östervåla, Uppsala
län. Please help me to understand. I have read several books and sites
and still don't quite understand the divisions. Is it because some are
government records and some are church records?
--- Translation of the county information for Östervåla parish:
Until 1863 the main part of the parish was in Västmanland county and a
small part (Ingeborgsbo) in Uppsala county. 1863-07-22 Ingeborgsbo was
transferred to Tierp parish in Uppsala county. 1890 Ingeborgsbo was
returned to Östervåla parish, now in Västmanland county.
3) In a church record for my gr. gr. grandfather, his mother is listed as
modren but his father is listed as erkånd fader. Recognized Father? What
would this mean? They weren't married yet? Had intentions to?
--- The child probably was born outside marriage, "erkänd fader" means
he had admitted he was the father of the child.
