Can anyone tell me what Bjorsagle means? This was found in a Swedish Household Examination Roll from Torlarp, Berga, Kronoberg, Sweden. It says No 40 Torlarp Bjorsagle. Torlarp is the name of the town. Is Bjorsagle the name of the farm? I can't find Bjorsagle in any Swedish dictionaries. Thank you for your help.

If you provide us with the name and the page number of the book you are looking in we can help you further.

Don't post the GID number from Genline since Genline is the only one using those numbers. Use the whole name of the book instead. Something like this: Berga AI:(and a number), page xx

Here are two books with slightly different versions.
Kronoberg Berga AI:12 Household Examination 1845-1852 Page 225
Kronoberg Berga AI:14 Household Examination 1852-1861 Page 244
I could also attach a scan of the page if that is easier. Thank you for your help.

The name Torlarp Björsagård is a farm North of Ljunby in Sweden. The name does not exists anymore but I was able to find the farm on old maps from the Swedish mapping, cadastral and land registration authority.

The first name, Torlarp turns out to be the name of an.. area. Sometimes the parish priests could dived the parish into smaller pieces for.. easy handling??
Anyway, Torlap is one of these smaller pieces.

You can see this at Berga AIIa:5 at the registry page in the beginning of the book. (Picture 7 at DigitalArchives images over the book) There you can see that Torlarp is the sixth piece, or Rote as we call them.

I don't know what the number, 40, stands for, maybe it's farm number 40 in that Rote.

And now to the fun part, the farm was located somewhere near
here: (Decimal) 56.8979, 14.0723,14.0750&z=15

P.S. Can you see my Swedish characters Å, Ä and Ö properly? D.S.

Your Swedish characters are coming through fine. Thank you so much for your help. This has been a confusion for so long until you explained everything. I was looking for the current town of Torlarp before this. Thanks again for your help.
