The information I sent Gladys is from the 1890 online census for
Vsternorrland. It is accessible by everyone over the internet.

Lnsboda is in rkened parish, Osby kommun, Skne ln. rkened parish
records are available online at this URL:


I have had a quick look at the births database but you sent me very little
information to be going on with. Do you have the children's birthdates?
Were they all born in Sweden or were they born in America? Do you have any
middle names for the children or full names?

I did find one boy named Carl born 1869-02-26 to Truen Trulsdotter, 42, and
Sven Svanberg/Swanberg, dragoon, in Ekeshult, rkened parish but I have no
way of knowing if this is the right one or not. These two are shown as also
having another two sons, Bengt and Nils, but no daughters turn up.

Cheers, Chris
