RE: Request for Genline Lookup for

Albert had a copy of the record from the LDS Microfilm that he offered to
send. I told him if he gave me the page number, the parish, etc. I could check
Genline for him and look at that record instead of having him send a copy of
As it happens, I can't decipher county and parish info from the immigrant
record that you gave me. I took a stab at it and found a Karlskoga Parish in
both Närke och Värmland and Örebro but neither parish has records back to 1829
online. Genline hasn't completed that work as yet. Your only option is to
order the microfilm for that period from an LDS Family History Library.
You may want to go to Sweggate.Com
to find out more about the history of
Karlskoga Parish and determine which county you need to research. I think one
of the letters in the immigrant info denotes a county, but I don't know that
code. You may find that on Sweggate or someone else may let you know.
Also, requests for info should be made through the list with replies going
back to the list. That way others can benefit from advice that is given as
well as contribute info I might not be able to give.
You said you stay at the Naval Base when you visit here. My husband is
retired Navy and we just spent several days at the campground on the beach at
NAS. We live between 9 1/2 and 10 mile road, but it's nice just to go down and
spend a few days there.
