attached I have a record for someone for my family tree and I'm trying to figure out if i should be looking in the Svea livgardes records for this person. As far as I can tell the notes say something about Johannes and the Svea livgardes and the year 1862 but the record to the right says about him moving somewhere in 1864. If someone could shed a little light on this I'd be appreciated. I'm really looking for where he moved and any other pertinent information
Undergått vapenöfning med Svea Lifgarde 1862, enligt rapport. Wesmda 1864 20
Underwent weapon training with SL 1862, according to report. At least that is what I get. Not knowing the column headings, my guess the last three columns are for "Move out: place, date, document number."
(Having a whole page to compare letter formation helps a lot for interpretation.)
When only a farm name is given (assuming that is what it is) that could mean the destination is in the parish. The little mark above tha last letter of place name could mean ditto or could belong to the last letter making it ä or ö or it could be a smudge. Now the 20 may be a moving out document number. You could look it up if they are available, and see what it says.
When I have to figure out local place names, sometimes you can get a list to compare against by going to wiki.FamilySearch.org, finding the parish and then read the local place list and compare. In this case the letters seem quite clear but they make no sense. there may be some abreviating going on. Ending in ä or ö seems unlikely. Go ahead, look up your parish. If you are lucky there will be a place name list. If not, you can often get one from the beginning or end of a husförhörlängd in the same time period.
Ok. Just doing a little search for the place with home resources...
Vermdö is possible (modern spelling Värmdö). It is kommun in the island area about 15 km east of Stockholm.
The industry of the municipality was dominated by the porcelain factory in Gustavsberg, established in the 1820s. Around the year 1900, 1,000 people were employed there, making it one of the largest working places in Sweden. Now it sounds like it is a very upscale vacation home area.
