In my family research here in Sweden, I have found some smiths among my ancestors, with the family name Croon/Cron.
As the registry books are not complete, I found the first one in 1653. His name was Hans Croon, then came his son Swen Croon, and so on.
Although most foreign smiths in Sweden came from Wallonia (in nowadays frenchspeaking Belgium), there were a lot of smiths coming from i.e. Germany.
At the same time, as nobody had id-cards withtheir names written, the authority person wrote the name he heard, as he thought it should be written.
It would therefore be possible, that a german smith, called for example Hans Krohn could be registred as Hans Croon, or what do you think?
My question to all of you is therefore,does it exist same family tree for the Krohn family in the 16th and 17th centuries?
