No one fits exactly. However, this Hanna Teolina was born in April of 1868 (not 1867). Perhaps?

Emibas:

I checked her birth records on Genline, a fee-based site.

http://www.genline.com (subscription) (The world version of Ancestry.com has the same records on Ancestry.com since they now own Genline.)

This says Hanna Teolina was born 13 (not 19) April 1868 in Ambjörnarp parish in Älvsborg county. Her parents were tenant farmer Gustaf Andreasson and wife Katrina Torstensdotter. The parents lived in Stenö in the parish. The mother was 40 years old.

I looked at the source page from the Emibas CD.

This could very well be your family even though some dates are off a bit. Remember the wonderful Swenson Center is a wonderful archive so do some checking there too.

As far as databases go, the Swedes are VERY interested in genealogy and have developed some fantastic databases. They also have parish records scanned and online for a fee, so it is not hard to find the original records.
