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

Thank you, Stephen! I would like to follow Johanna Johansdotter, if possible. I continue to be amazed and grateful of the willingness to help that I am finding from you and Annalie.

Rote is a military term. Sweden had a special militarysystem there some farms a village had to provide for a soldier, some land a cottage. More you can read about at - Swedish Military History.

Hi Kristen!  Glad to see you are still researching your Swedish roots.  I don't know what Annelie has already sent you, but I found your family in two of the household examination rolls for Lekåsa, as well as the moving out list for Lekåsa.  The couple was married in 1881.  Two sons who died in Sweden are listed, as well as a surviving son Karl Albin, born 30 July 1885.  Let me know if you're interested in more detailed information.  It should be possible to follow Johanna Johansdotter back in time in Åsaka ( = Barne-Åsaka).

Thank you so much, Annelie! What is a rote?

Comment by Annelie Jonsson on July 20, 2012 at 4:44am

It seems to be a rote in Lekåsa also with the name Bragnum. I didn't know that. Sending you files of the churchbook throuhgt your adress on Facebook.

Also, Stephen Kohler wrote on Feb. 20, 2011:

Anders Peter Svensson was born 26 May 1856 on the farm Hjelltag in Bitterna and baptized the following day.  His father was Sven Jonasson and the mother was Britta Stina Jonasdotter.  I was unable to pinpoint the family in the household examination roll for roughly the same time period.

So how does that fit in with Frostag Bragnum?
