My intention this morning was to provide the information in a more organized way, but time slipped and I just posted the raw information.
About Kyrkhult: A parish in Blekinge County; a link to a historical map from 1870 is attached.http://www.diginpast.se/ostkanten/kartor/eng/kyrk.html
I guess it would have been difficult to find a populated place one could call a village, except maybe for “Hemsjö” with its railroad station.
I wouldn’t say it was easy to find “Jutanäs”, where Hildas’s family lived, on that map. It seems to be a few farmhouses only. Go ca. 3 km (scale is at the bottom left) North East from Kyrkhult and the lonely farmhouses are found between two lakes.
The christening of Hilda translated:
