I am searching for descendants of Frans August Vilgot Johansson who was born near Eriksberg in Jan 1873.
The farm on which he was born was named Hökhult. and he was the son of Johan Pettersson and Maria
Kristina Andersdotter. He emigrated to the US about 1891.

The surname was changed to Palmquist by all the family members, I am told.

I'm guessing that the following probate record relates to a member of your family: Kristoffersson, Mattias, hemmansägare, Rölanda, Högen, 1859: 929. This was found in the index of probate records for Vedbo häradsrätt covering the years 1737-1859. The actual record is in FIIa:34, p. 929. The record itself indicates Mattias died on 17 July 1859 and that he left a widow Katarina Larsdotter. There are additional probate records for Vedbo härad after 1859, but no index is available on Arkiv Digital for those years.

Hi Steven, I guess I should have been more specific. I have the census records up to 1920. I am looking for direction in finding land records, wills or court records, both past and present. Also, I know that several of my great-great uncles lived in that area until their deaths. Gustav Martin and Otto Albin Christofferson

Hi Jilaine,

I've taken a look at the records for Rölanda available from Arkiv Digital. There is a settlement (a gård perhaps) called Högen there. A quick review of the pages for Högen in the household examination roll AI:13 (1876-1885), p. 75-96 did not reveal any Christofferssons but I wasn't sure of the time frame that your family was there. Post some more specific information on the person you are seeking in Rölanda, especially a birthdate, and I'll have another look at the records.

I am looking for contacts or resources for the Rölanda-Högen area. The last name I am predominately looking for is Christofferson or Christopherson. Thanks
