I'm struggling with the 11/32 and 1/4 - meaning?
What is the word after Gustaf Israel Jonsson's name?
Is Johanna Carolina's place of birth Linderås? (I don't find
her in the birth books there)
Adelöv (Jönköping) AI:15 1866-1870
1/4 is the farm size in mantal, he is "1/4 Eg." (owner of 1/4
But then it seems the words "och Br." ("och brukare" = and
I'm not sure what it means, but perhaps he owne 1/4 mantal, and
rented more land as tenant, so the total size was 11/32 mantal.
Or it is something different...
The words after the name looks like "i Ask???", probably a
placename. He had come from page 18 (GID 971.31.35400), the
placename there looks like that. His title there is "Br. Dr.",
he is both "brukare" and "dräng"
Johanna Carolina's birthplace looks like Linderås, and she came
from Linderås 1868. Perhaps you can find her there and trace her
She and her parents are in Linderås HFL AI:15 1868-1871 page 20
(GID 255.38.25800) and the bithplace looks like Linderås again.
