There are no Peter/petter born in either Hinneryd or Göteryd september 1794

I need your complete file of him if you want my help
Comment by Ron Johnson on April 2, 2010 at 5:03am
I have a Peter/Petter Krut, born September 1794; a soldier in the Regiment Smalands Grenadjar Bataljon, Company Sunnerbo, Parish Goteryd, File Snarhult. He was married to Sara Nilsdotter; they had a daughter Anna born November 20, 1820 at Snarhult Dragontorp. Apparently, he moved to Goteryd from Hinneryd in 1813 at which time he also changed his name from Rask to Krut. The couple had two other daughters, Stina (10/23/1815) and Johanna (8/10/1825).

I'm trying to find the name he was born with and his parents names and info... Any help would be appreciated. Tak.

Have updated my website Emigrant.se with new lists of emigrants from Falköping, Skaraborg. It's two type of lists. One sorted by born parish the other in the state/country the emigrants died in.

My family is mostly from Malmohus, Kristianstad and Halland... so the very bottom part of Sweden.

I'm a professional researcher and would be happy to help anyone frustrated with their Swedish roots to help them be located. Email me.

Oops, try this--
I research mainly in Floby Parish and surrounding Parish areas of Skaraborgs Lan and also some in Loftahammar, Kalmar Lan Sweden. My blog, Those Old Memories often has stories and pics of Swedish ancestors or research.

Patrick,
Annelie has the correct record and I did not on the first try! It's a very hard one to read for sure. The only thing I can add is under witnesses, there is a (hustru) Maria and a (pigan)Stina. I can not make out their last names. I believe the "witnesses' are all from Solberga, there is a "Norra,( North) and a Sodra,(South) Solberga

I don't have Genline, I use ArkivDigital instead as the pictures are much better as they have taken photos of the original books. So when you write about pagenumbers I prefer the one in the original book, not Genlines numbers.

I don't think I'm the best person to help out with writtings in the 1700ties but I can make a try.

Stina b 13th Jan. Parents Lars Jonsson and Sara L? in ..arp, Vtbg I think it means Boarp, Västergården.
