Hi!Yes,those patroynmic naming traditions have caused me a great deal of gray hair!How it didn't confuse THEM is more than I know.And of course I played that game with Hilder Yngve Anderson- thinking his parents' names would be different, and of course in his case, they were not. All the kids were named Andersson just like the parents, so we never REALLY know until we know how someone named someone.
Thanks for the listing of the parishes, too. Quite a lot of them, I must say.
Since William is not listed in the 1900+ censuses, having died apparently by 1893 [when his wife is listed as widow in city directory],we can't use census data to identify emigration year. Just one more bump in a very bumpy road.William has about worn us all out, that Devil!
Thanks for all your tips and resources, though!We do appreciate it. Someday...I must learn to read Swedish. :)
