Some Swedish Information

In Reply to: Albertina Bjorkander Anderson, d. Galveston 12-29-1874 by Jeanne Rollberg of 65430

Emibas CD:

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

Björkander, Albertina
Dotter = daughter. (unmarried woman)

It seems she left from the city/parish (which parish is not yet clear) of Örebro which is in the county of Örebro. I suggest that you contact the Örebro Stadsarkiv (City Archive). They would probably be able to give you more information and they would probably like to have information on what happened to her after emigration. (You never know. Maybe someone in Sweden is researching her or will be researching her in the future.)

She was born in Hasslöv parish in Halland county, however. Records were kept in the parish and luckily those parish records are online, for a fee, on sites such as Genline.

This site tells how to research in Swedish parish records.

The household examination record at the time Albertina left Sweden is shown, in Genline's scan of the original parish record, on this page. In this record it is clear that the parish in the city of Örebro is Örebro Nikolai. (Remember that we need to find parish names since records were kept in the parish.) This record covers 1871-1875.

2316.35.19900, [Örebro] Örebro Nikolai, AI:27D, Household examination, 1871 - 1875, 175/0, Image 144 of 295

Johan Björkander, born 14 September 1813 in Björksäter. (I suspect he adapted his last name from that parish name. He probably just had a normal patronymic last name until then. You will need to research to see when he took the name. That will be clear in the parish records.) His title/occupation was stationskarl. I think that means he did some sort of work at a train station but I'm not sure.

wife Inga Broman, born 8 March 1841 in Rockeby?

d. Augusta Charlotta, born 13 February 1837 in Mariestad??? She went to America 3 September 1872, certificate number 152

d. Albertina, born 18 October 1849 in Hassled????, to America 30 May 1871, certificate number 114

d. Anna Lovisa, born 12 October 1852 in the same place as Albertina

Since children were born about every two years, there must be more. (Check the gaps in birth years.) You can research the entire family by going forwards and backwards in the household examination records and then checking for the details in the birth/baptism, banns/marriage, death/burial, and moving in and out records. Swedish records are very detailed.

Emibas again:

This person left on the same date as Augusta Charlotta. I don't see this person on Emibas, however. Maybe she is related.
