My g-g-grandfather, Karl Anders Lindqvist, was supposedly born at Stjärnorp, Östergötland län on 7 May 1811. He married Kristina Persdotter on 22 Nov 1835. This information was provided by a cousin, but no source was given. It is my understanding that Stjärnorp was a manor estate. Karl Anders was a shoemaker at one time and a tenant farmer at other properties when his children were born. I am interested in finding out who his parents were (my g-g-g-grandparents) and believe that information would be in the Stjärnorp, Östergötland parish records. Can anyone help me locate information for him from parish records or even a Househould Examination record for Stjärnorp, Östergötland from this period?
Thank you so much for any help. I am very new to this and just learning to read a little Swedish (basic words).
