Perhaps some of you can give me information.
I am looking for emigrants from Slätthög, a parish in Småland.
I was interested in your posting to Sweden-L. I have no idea where
Slätthög, or even Småland are, but I can tell you a bit about my Swedish
ancestors. My great-grandfather was Fredrik Fransson, who was born 15
July 1826 at Malmö. He moved to Motala in 1851, according to HFL, and
married Josephina Charlotta Sophia Ekland. They had five children:
Christina Lovisa, Gustaf Frithiof, Fredrik Rudolf, August Sigfrid, and
Carl Fridolf. I believe all of the emigrated and settled first in the
Chicago area. My grandfather, Carl Fridolf Fransson took the name
Charles F. Franson and was a civil engineer. He lived in Brooklyn, NY.
I have traced the line back a little further in Östergötland, the church
records of which are available on the Internet through Genline, but I
have not been able to learn more about Fredrik Fransson because the
Malmö records aren't available online yet.
I'd be very grateful for any hints or suggestions you might have.
Good luck in your searches.
