I have truly been trying to follow my families by myself after gaining a basic understanding from others on this board of what to do. Some have been fairly easy while others, like this one, have not.
Carl Gustaf Leonhard Sandstrom was born on 28 Mar 1856 according to his birth record and an 1851-57 household examination...
(GID Number: 429.48.75400, Volume: C:8, Roll Number: IJ-1034, Page Number: 183)
(GID Number: 429.30.23400, Volume: AI:23, Roll Number: IJ-1031, Page Number: 303)
His parents are listed as Lars Peter? Sandstrom b.15 Nov 1829 and Sophia Elanna? Nystrom b.10 Jul 1834. Both parents list Åtvid as their place of birth yet I could not find them in Åtvid or surrounding parishes. So I could truly use some help figuring out where the parents were actually born, and their parents, etc..
Secondly I have Carl Gustaf living, (actually homeless) in Alseda, Jönköping in 1876-1880 household examination...
(GID Number: 973.38.54500, Volume: AI:22, Roll Number: VS-1136, Page Number: 411).
The problem is I have not been able to locate any records between the 1857 exam in Åtvid and the 1880 Jönköping exam, just prior to his emigration to North America. Would really like to follow Carl during this time period to see if he had any siblings, etc.
Any assistance as always is truly appreciated.
