In Reply to: Looking for Gustaf Petter Nordstrom's (1870) family by Andrew Lucas of 298

Records were kept in the parish, so in the case of where Gustaf was born, his parish was Bunge and he left Sweden while living in Bunge parish. The father was born in Lärbro parish. The mother was born in Hangvar parish.

Emibas was made from registrations in the Swedish parish to go to a foreign country. It is about 75% complete.

The parish records are online if you join a site such as Genline, which is fee-based.

http://www.genline.com

The family is listed from 1891-1896 at this Genline page.

GID # 2666.4.71600

Specific birthdates for the parents were:

Petter Albert: 22 March 1843

Charlotta Carolina: 16 April 1840

The parents were married 10 January 1868.

Another son is listed in 1886-1890.

GID # 2666.3.57000

Carl Wilhelm was born 11 November 1878 in Bunge parish and died 24 August 1890.

Keep working backwards in the parish records to try to find more children and then work forwards to see what happened to them. Children were usually born about every two years so it seems there should be more than I've found so far.

The first FAQ on this page tells how to try to find living relatives in Sweden.

This page tells how to do research in the Swedish parish records.

http://genforum.genealogy.com/peterson/messages/4308.html

Many have found living relatives by joining DISBYT, contacting the researchers (since more is usually available than shows up on the database) and they do even better when they contribute their own GEDCOM since they get a password allowing even more information to show and since their information might get relatives to contact them.

This article tells more about DISBYT.

Good luck!
