Hi Hal, Using info that Judy Baouab has posted on Ancestry.com, she says that another reseacher has found the following info about Elin's birth record. I found a birth record which seems to be right although the dates do not match. This Elin was born on Jun 2 1779 in the Soldattorp, Horda Ploagård, Rydaholm, Jönköpings län. Her parents were Soldat Sven Bengtsson Lax b Apr 5 1755 and Kerstin Andersdotter b Apr 19 1756. Elin's birth record can be found at GID: 1126.25.38100,[Jönköping]Rydaholm,C:4, Födde, 1766 - 1781, 0/264,Bild 136 av 198and the family can be found at GID: 1126.25.38100,[Jönköping]Rydaholm,C:4, Födde, 1766 - 1781, 0/264,Bild 136 av 198 Hope this info will be useful for you!
