Thank you for this information. I had never heard of this place, but just found it on the map. I enjoy learning about new places!
Värmland is the county but Värmlandsnäs is a locality, a peninsula in Lake Vänern. Värmlandsnäs kommun (municipality) is nowadays Säffle kommun. It is also a part of Näs härad (jurisdictional district).
I probably can't help much because of the Norwegian part, but I wonder if Värmland (once Wermland, I think) province and county is where she was born.(You said "Vermlandnaes or Naes?") I don't understand the "Naes" part. I suppose a Swede will be able to make a good guess.You need a much smaller location than Värmland.
Amundsen/Nielsen/Johansen-Naes Varmland Sweden
I am trying to get more information on
Karen Amundsen Born 21 June 1836 Vermlandnaes or Naes? Sweden ..other surnames could have been Nilsen?
Anne Marie Amundsen (or Johansen/Johnson?)-Born 28 June 1865-Oslo Norway-married Karl Ludvig Nilsen -born 16 March 1861-Eisdvold Norway
Caroline Elise F Amundsen (or Johanson?)-born July 19 1875-Oslo Norway married Peter Bernhard Petterson/Pedersen-Born in Oslo Oct4 1872
I have locate Karen on the 186 & 1875 census already.
Vermlandnaes Sweden-Karen Amundsen-1836Johan
Thank you so much for your information! Do you live in Sweden? I have never heard of these place either?
I think I may have found Karen(30yrs)(Vermelandsass or naes Sverge) & Johan Amundsen(26yrs)(Eidsvold)on the Norwegian census for 1865..no children are shown yet.
Therefore I am assuming that perhaps Karen's last name could have been something else?
I think I also found Karen again on the 1875 census, but it shows her last name "Nielsen" occup Hjula 1836 Vaermeland naes Sverige. Her daughters Anne Marie Johansen 1865 and Karoline Elise Johansen 1875..
Do you think the people I found are my family? (I am not sure -What do you think?)
Bye for now
