Re: Eric/Erik Johansson from Sweden

Tina,

If Cristoffer was married, this might be your person. Then follow him backwards in the Swedish parish records to find his parents and siblings, etc.

From the Emibas CD, made from registrations in the Swedish parish to go to a foreign country:

Post 280603

Eriksson, Christoffer
Possessionat, ägare (married man)

b. 1/13/1845 in Moheda, Kronobergs län (Småland)

Emigrated 8/14/1889
from Torp Västregård, Moheda, Kronobergs län (Småland)
to Amerika

Source: Household Examination Roll, p. 159

Emibas migration file ID: Moheda G 1889 011

Occupations and titles have not been translated on this cd, but a dictionary lists possessionat as estate owner, landed proprietor, and ägare is a word I already know. Ägare means owner. (It seems a bit redundant to give two titles meaning the same thing, so perhaps I'm missing something that a Swede could explain better.)

Olofsdotter, Christina
Hustru (married woman)

b. 7/21/1843 in Berg, Kronobergs län (Småland)

All these names you've provided are VERY common and need a location and complete birthdates plus full Swedish names, but if the above family is yours, your task is much easier. You can even search online using the fee-based Genline site, which has scans of the original parish records. The parish record is the main source of genealogical information in Sweden.
