I need to know your Fathers name and on the rest of his family. Were did they go then they arrived to USA?
It would help a lot if you know were in Värmland they lived
There are no Nils Eliasson in Uppsala today, but several in the…"
Thanks Leif. I have never know the names of Ola's parents. That will be interesting. Looks like Larry will look those up for me. You two together had been great! If there is something I can do to help you, let me know.
I see from your profile you are from Örebrolän. My family came from Baggetorp in Kvistbro parish. We got to visit the area in 2005 including the family house at Skarpåsen which is now someones summer cottage. ffmm came over to the US in 1889 but some branches of the family remain in the Örebro area (including Vinteråsa and Svartå).
How wonderful. It is interesting the name in Sweden that Ole had. That could be of help to me for sure looking for more stuff for him. I bet the Maria born in 1888 is for sure Mary Elisabeth. I actually remember her! When she was a child she got one of her index fingers stuck in a wringer washer that deformed it for life. You have been most helpful Leif.
The next step would be Ole (Ola) and Mathilda's marriage. They were married December 30, 1887 in Sweden.
I am also looking in to proof of Mathilda's sisters. From information I have - they came over seperatly. One was named Maria and the other Anna. They migrated in the same town as Ole and Mathilda. I just never really had any sufficient proof.
