I am still studying the Husforhorslangd record for Sodra Vi looking for
the full story of my Carlson family. I had posted several questions
about the one for 1868-1875 and got some great answers. It occurred to
me to look at the book previous to that, being Sodra Vi household
examinations 1862-1867 and GID #163.34.44200. [...]
1. Line 11 has an August Olsson and it looks like "Hyresgast Handelsman"
before his name, or abbreviations for that. Could someone please look
and see if I read it right?
--- Yes, or more likely "Hyresgäst, Handlanden", meaning renter and
2. On line 17 there is an August Carlsson. Coincidentially he was
born in 1840 and came in 1866 but is NOT my uncle August who came
the same year and is listed in the subsequent volume.
--- Johan August Carlsson born 11 june 1840, emigrated to America 14
There is a note for him in the 27th column over, the one just
before the moving out column. The word looks like "Lyso" or "Lyn"
67 but I can't be sure. Could someone please look and tell me what
that word means?
--- He had "Lysn" (lysning = reading of banns for marriage) 5 May 1867.
