Hello. I would like some help reading out a birth record. I think I have it right but I am not sure. It Anna Sophia Maria Born 3 Feb 1829 in Askersund Parish, Orebro Lan. If I am correct the godfather, or grandfather and godmother or grandmother are listed in the column on the left, Anders Andersson and (his wife, or just a married woman) Maja Andersdotter. I not sure what the second word in the section is or means for sure. Then, in the next column I think that is where the parents are listed, I think it says farmer, Ekeborg (is that a place, the name of a farm?) Nils Andersson and his wife Cath Hansdotter, son of Anders Nilsson, I think the next work means same, or from the same place, family dotters Stina, Lisa. then either Anna, or Andersson, the Borda (not sure what that means, does it mean Born?) Askerunds.

I would love one of you kinds Swedes to help me on this. I am willing to do my own research but when I do find something my reading them out skills are very,very, rusty. I have forgotten lots of what I used to know and I am trying to get back into it......

Thanks for any help.
