I am researching a Pher (Per, Phear) Pedersen's family who emigrated from Sweden to Australia abt. 1800 - 1890. Pher's wife's name was Elsa Nelson and they had 12 children, the last being my maternal grandfather Charles Johanne Pedersen (name changed to Charles John Petersen by deed poll in Australia). The family came from Ronneby, Blekinge, Sweden where we believe Phear was a Solicitor and Wine Merchant, as well as the local Mayor. Can anyone help me in this research?
