Thank you for your suggestions. I started writing a response but hit a wrong key and sent it to some place in cyber space... You are the second person to suggest Henriksson rather than Henderson and it is not a Swedish name.

I have a few questions that, perhaps, you could give me some guidance and are relative to your suggestions.

1. I was given a very old photo album from around the 1870s. Most of the formal pictures were taken at studios in Norway and only a few were in Sweden. Most of Swedish studios were in towns not far from the Norway boarder. This was puzzling to me. Would Henderson be a Norwegian name?

2. My GGrandmother's death certificate information was given by my GGrandfather. It stated only that she was born in Dalsland, Sweden. This seems to be the only credible lead for finding a domicile in Sweden, how might I check to find a parish?

Again, thank you for such great information!
