Glad to join.  Some of my relatives came from the Järpås and Levine areas.  Paternal surname of Fahlstöm came into being in 1700's.  Nils Svensson Fahlström was born in 1748, but I have not been able to confirm that due to bad handwriting in the parish records and not sure of exactly which parish.  He was a dragoon and died 21 Oct 1816. I was able to get a copy of his military records. I have not yet extensively researched his wife, Stina Nilsdotter, born in 1753.

I am looking for the location of two farms in Fägre Parish:  Harstensmossen and Stanbacken.  I plan to visit them.   Please advise.

Also, how can I get parish maps for Skaraborg County?

New to both this site and this group. Hope to learn a little about the langue and customs of the area my family came from.

Comment by serena clarkson on October 14, 2012 at 1:32pm

Do I have any famous family? Do I have anything interesting in my family?

Comment by serena clarkson on October 14, 2012 at 1:31pm

I want to know anything and everything that I can about my family. I have no family here that knows about them. I am trying to find family that may or may not know about my CMT disease and see if any other family has the same thing.

Comment by Annelie Jonsson on October 14, 2012 at 12:38pm

And what is't you like to know about him?

Comment by serena clarkson on October 13, 2012 at 1:33pm

Alfred and Anna gave birth to a son in Skovde,,Vastergotland, Sweden named Hjalmar George Carlson, born 7-24-1891 and died 11-5-1973

Comment by Annelie Jonsson on October 13, 2012 at 12:34pm

Carlson is in Sweden Karlsson or Carlsson. Thousands have that name. You have to have more information on the person who are looking for.
