And what parish was her father born in? And is this the correct birth entry for her mother?
This family is making me CRAZY!
I first find them here - Kråksmåla AI:4 (1831-1843) Image 92 / page 82 (AID: v23046.b92.s82, NAD: SE/VALA/00193)
I can continue to trace them in Kråksmåla AI:5- p 40 AI:6- p 201
In AI:7 the parents started using middle names, and Dorthea Sophia became Dorthea Serafina
Kråksmåla AI:7 (1843-1857) Image 264 / page 257 (AID: v23049.b264.s257, NAD: SE/VALA/00193)
This is the first register to state where they were born
Kråksmåla AI:9 (1857-1862) Image 141 / page 133 (AID: v23051.b141.s133, NAD: SE/VALA/00193)
Here Dorthea’s birth date changed -all previous entries were 24 March 1836, now she is b 24 July 1836, the July birth date continued to be recorded until she died in 1926.
Here it also states she was born in Kråksmåla, but I have search through all birth records +/- 5 years and can not find her. In A1:9 is states his birth place is Elgh, later written as Elghult, I was thinking this must be Älghult? I searched through their birth records and household examinations trying to find him and have not. Might Elghult be something else? And re: Dorthea, might her birth record have been not recorded?
And then there is her mother. Lena Cajsa Carlsdotter, b 1810. I found a Anna Cajsa Carlsdtr B1810
Kråksmåla C:1 (1760-1818) Image 175 / page 341 (AID: v39949.b175.s341, NAD: SE/VALA/00193)
Most likely with her family here- now recorded as Lena Cajsa
Kråksmåla AI:3 (1830-1836) Image 45 / page 79 (AID: v23045.b45.s79, NAD: SE/VALA/00193)
Anna Cajsa was born in Gronskåla(1810) In 1830-1836 AI:3 Lena Cajsa living with parents Carl Svensson and Martha in Gronskåla, and when Lena and Carl were first married they also lived in Gronskåla.
Do you think this is Dorthea’s correct mother and grandparents?
I continue to trace Lena and Carl until their deaths. The relocated to Djupadal u Thorshult#3 about 1840.
Thank you for any help!
