I am trying to find Alfred and Anna Carlson, who lived in Skovde, Gotseland, Sweden. They had a son named Hjlamar George Carlson 7-24-1891 to 1973. This is my ggrandfather. I am trying to find anything about his parents and back. Any help would be great. I know Hjalmar went to the USA in 1910 to New York and I have the family from there, just not back.
Serena, may I suggest that you also post this request to "Skaraborg County Ancestry" on GenealogyWise. That group specializes in research in your family area, The moderator is very good.
Have you looked at any of the church books for Skövde? In general, you can access them thru FamilySearch.org (a no-fee site) or thru Ancestry.com/Genline, SVAR or ArkivDigital.org (all fee sites). Your local FamilySearch family history center will probably have in-library free access with Ancestry or ArkivDigital.
Any more details about their marriage or exactly where they lived in Sweden (exact parish). I will look when I get to the library.
