Would appreciate help in interpreting the following church records of Gloria Dei Luthern Church's (South Bend, Indiana) Members Born, it says:

Name: Nils Henrick Forsberg
Place or Parish: Botilsaters (Sweden)
Date of birth: May 14, 1860 (the 14 is clear, but conflicts with the Flyttningsbevis which says 04)
Received: 1892 (I assume recv'd in the Church?)
Arrived in this Place: 1888
Married: July 08, 1887 (the "7" was interpreted)
Died: no entry

Wife:
Name: Anna Maria "f" (last name verified by a paper called Flyttningsbevis) - listed below.
Place or Parish: Tisselskogs (Sweden)
Date of birth: February 01, 1864 (agrees with the Flyttningsbevis)
Received: 1892
Arrived in this Place: 1888
Died: June 26, 1910

Dtr. Ellen Ottilia
Place or Parish: South Bend, Indiana
Date of birth: April 28, 1889
Confirmed: July 26, 1903 (entry says July 26-03)
Dropped: (cannot read it)
Ellen Ottilia Forsberg m. Ike Peltz.

Son. Axel Walderman (my uncle's brother, "Walter")
Place or Parish: South Bend, Indiana
Date of birth: July 07, 1899 (a ten year span of births between Ellen and Axel)

Son. Edward Wilbert (my uncle who m. my Hungarian Aunt, Marie Katherine Benko-Szabo - my father's sister. Marie's children and g.children, and g.grandchildren are still living.)
Place or Parish: River Park, St. Joseph, Ind. (River Park is next door to South Bend, a suburb, like)
Date of birth: August 17, 1903
Baptised: July 03, 1905
Dropped: January 31, 1933

First page of the Flyttninsbevis: (I believe these are records they presented for immigration)
I interpret: Book 19, Page 37 (could be 87) at the top of the document.
Line 1:
"Albettaven Nils Henrik Johansfon (the f is duplicated as an s, so it is: Johansson - "son of"), then it looks like fran Flaternd.
Line 2:
och hans Hustru Anna Maja Olsdotter ... 8 Juli 1887 (marriage date)
then:
Mannen
04 May 1860
i Botilsaters ... of Wermlands (can't understand the rest)
Hustrun
01 Februari 1864
i Tisselskogs of Elfsborgs )can't understand the rest)

Second page of the Flyttninsbevis:

Dottern Hilma Julia Hilda Sofia Foresblad
1854 (fentiofyre) Bolumg .. af Skarab ...15 Januari
(more I can't read), then
Nora Amerika
Asersuno? Sverize? 16 Oktober, 1880 Attio,
signed
Carl (or Earl) Gyugquest, pastor.
a seal: Pastors Emb Askersund (clear)

There is a stamp that reads "Poliskammarin Gotirord" (church or ship stamp?) .... to Amerika
11 Maj 1888 (attivatta) - I assume affidavit

Signed. J. Johansfon, Prostag Pastor

A SECOND set of papers has to be Nil's brother! Member Born document from Gloria Dei Luthern Church. by now you know the format, I'll just give the info. (children do fit the 10 year gap, from above)

N. J. Forsberg, (Place or Parish very hard to read Edi... Trent?) Born July 25, 1855, arrived in America 1880, from Buffalo, NY, Married Feb? 15, 1892, removed and dismised Caliomet? M... Oct 1903.
Note: initials for the given and middle name.
Wife: Elin Sofia, Motola, Sweden, born: Aug 05, 1874, received 1898, arrived in America 1880, from Buffalo NY, removed and dismissed the same as N. J. Forsberg, her husband, above.
Dtr. Anna Louisa, Parish or Place, McKeesport PA, Born: July 21, 1893
Dtr. Helen, Parish or Place, Buffalo NY, Born November 24, 1894
Dtr. Vala Sofia, Parish or Place: South Bend, Indiana, Born April 16, 1898
Dtr. Tora Leona, Parish or Place: South Bend, Indiana October 25, 1900.

There is no Flyttningsbevis for N.J. Forsberg.

I am trying to understand the naming system for surnames and the locations mentioned. My Forsberg uncle is a direct descendent to Nils Forsberg. Truly would appreciate help. Nadine (hardin3942@juno.com)
