This is to Bonnie who posted on August 17 @ 6:31pm.

I'm not sure if you actually have the correct information on you grandmother.

If your grandmother is Anna Maria Teresia born on 28 June 1905 in Skeby, then she wasn't an only child.

A quick check in the records show that Anna Maria Teresia, daughter of Frans Johansson (b. 9 December 1859) and Kristina Persson (b. 16 October 1866), has at least three ( 3 ) brothers! All born i Skeby and the oldest is born in 1896, less than six months after Frans and Kristina came to Skeby from...North America!

What a lovely and useful web site! I am interested in Marka and Gokhem. Since I found out that my grandfather's original family name wasn't Becklund, but Andersson, I'm interested also in learning more about the ways surnames were changed once emigrants arrived in America.

Thank you for starting this page. I would like to find any history I can on my grandmother who was born in Skeby Annex, Skaraborg, in 1905 to Frantz Johansson and Kerstine Persson. She was the only child. I would like to know where this Skeby Annex is and any other information that any can share. Thanks!

My Grandmother Anna Sofia Eriksdotter was born in Helsningstorp Forsvik Undenäs Skaraborg Västergötland Sweden 15 May 1879 to Erik Olofsson and Kajsa Larsdotter. She married Karl Oskar Andersson on 31 January 1903 in Brevik Skaraborg Vastergotland Sweden. She left Sweden on 30 July 1907 with 2 children to join her husband in the USA. I am looking for more of her family in Sweden. Arlene Hollenbeck

Hello and thank you for the invitation to join. My grandfather, Knut Alfred Flodin, was born in Ransberg Parish. He emigrated to the US in 1893. His father and mother as well as other family members are buried in the church cemetary. As far as I can detemine, Flodin is a soldier name that stuck. My lineage in Skaraborg goes back to at least the 1600s.
