I'm surprised that you are not also posting on the Sweden forum since you are asking about ancestors. Type Sweden into the "Jump to Forum" space at the top right of this page.

At any rate, his name is common, so it is necessary to determine **which** Emil Johansson born 1851 in Torshult, Kråksmåla parish you are researching. (He is NOT the only man born in Kråksmåla with the name Emil and a last name of Johansson in 1851.)

The 1900 Swedish Census CD lists this man, however, who was living in Thorsult (a village in Kråksmåla parish; Torshult is the same place without the extra "decorative" h.) # 1 (the farm). Do the others in that family fit your ancestry? If so, then it is worthwhile to check the ancestry of this man, but otherwise, some other choice should be selected.

I checked the birth record for Emil. These birth records are scans of the original record books. They are online on fee-based sites such as Genline.

This is the specific source and page.

92.12.20400, [Kalmar] Kråksmåla, C:3, Births, 1849 - 1861, 0/47, Image 30 of 144

GID # 92.12.20400

The above Emil Johansson was born 3 December 1851 in Thorshult Number 3 (Thorshult village, farm 3) in Kråksmåla parish. His parents were the farmer Johan Ernst Larsson and his wife, Stina Lisa Pehrsdotter. (Persdotter is the same name as Pehrsdotter but it is without the "decorative h".) The mother was 31 years old.

Baptism witnesses were the farmer Jöns???? Jönsson??? in Thorshult and his wife Anna Stina Pehrsdotter.

Provide the above details and then ask for help on the Sweden forum. Someone will probably help out with part of the ancestry, but usually we have to do most of it by ourselves. Maybe you will be lucky.

The following url tells how to research in Swedish parish records.
