It is VERY important to include the parish of birth too. Records were kept in the parish.

For others seeking this family (and to make it easier to search for more information to try to help you), I will provide the information you have already seen from the 1890 Swedish Census CD.

Much more detail is probably available in the Swedish parish records. (Swedish records are fantastic and well preserved for the most part. However, fire and other disasters have destroyed some parish records.)

I'm surprised that you haven't posted on the Sweden forum. Type Sweden into the "Jump to Forum" space at the top right of the page.

I am not related.
