Can someone please help find Anna Andersdotter's father. I have her mother as Karen Jönsdotter b. 1699 d. 1776. Anna Andersdotter was born 1726 Gärda/Giärda/Gerde (I've seen all three spellings) Gagnef, Kopparberg, Sweden.

The problem I'm having is the records don't have the birth records for 1726. I'm also missing part of the 1776 death records. I'm having to use Ancestry's copies of the Swedish records. Not sure if that makes a difference or not.

In the household records [Household examination 1738 - 1757 (Al:1) page 27 no. 15] Anna'a father is gone by the earliest records we have, so there isn't any help there either. I've checked marriage records from 1715 on up to 1726 and didn't find a marriage record for a Karen Jonsdotter married to an Anders _________.

Anna's death record doesn't record her parents' name either.

I appreciate any help you can give me.
