Swedish Ancestors
« on: Monday 11 September 17 13:59 BST (UK) »
Hi

I am looking for any information (including census if possible) on this couple and their parents;

Erik Wilhelm Ekelund born in Raus, Malmohus (Malmo) on the 3rd March 1910.
He married:
Greta Alli Ingeborg Johansson on the 22nd November 1934 in Boras, Alvsborg.

Greta had been born on the 3rd March 1910 in Orkelljunga, Kristianstad, daughter of Elof Johannson and Cecilia Karlsson.

They had a daughter, Karin, born on the 5th January 1937 and, possibly other children as well.

Thank you

Sue Roberts

That's fantastic Ian, thanks so much!

I have got some information via 'ancestry' - can I ask if you got the detail you have posted from there?

I know that there are Norwegian census available, but do you know if there are any Swedish? Just to get a feel for their occupations etc...

Thanks
Sue

Hi Sue and cheers.

I got the info from ArkivDigital. I have a subscription. I have both families and can follow them forwards or backwards.
What would you like to know?

Ian
