Also, I tried checking the household examination records for the years right after they moved in. Ancestry does not have them. It jumps from 1824-1829 to 1838-1842 then on to 1842-1846. I found them and their children in the 1838-1842 and the 1842-1846, but both of those records give a birth year only for the Jons and his wife Anna, and to make things worse, the give the year of Jons birth as 1798 in Lyngby,and for Anna they give 1802 and no parish. I know I have the right family because one of their children is my paternal great grandfather and I have traced him back from mulitiple records that give his birth date, such as his marriage record since I already knew who his wife was. From there I found his birth record and death record and his wife came to america as a widow. The parish books confuse him with another
Anders Jonsson born almost next door, with the same fathers name, in the same year, but a different mother of course! But I have worked that problem out and am sure this is my family. Could it be that the parish books mixed up the birth dates for Anders AND his parents? I can see that the error with Anders birth continues until the family is gone from there. Any thoughts on what I could do to solve this once and for all?
