Yes, I have been told that August's father either came from the village Vanneberga which is ríght outside Vinslöv,or that he may have worked there as a policeman or something like that and took the name Wanberg. It is believed by relatives in Vinslöv that when August came to America, he may have used that last name also. I too have relatives in Vinslöv and the area near there. One by the name of Ove Månsson from Tollarp. Would be interesting if you were related to Ove.
