About Henry (Anders) Andersson

Little is known about Henry (Anders) other than statistics. However, on son Fred's birth record it lists his occupation as a an "arbetare" (translates as "worker"). Assume this meant laborer. Anders had at least 5 children with wife Charlotta. They were married for 8 years when son Fred was born, giving an approximate marriage year of 1863

Update: 12/12/14 Found an unsourced Ancestry family tree record that claims Anders was born June 4, 1833 in Ottarp, Sweden. Same entry claims a marriage date to Chalotta Muhrbery of July 14, 1864 in Landskrona, Sweden.

Update - September 30, 2015 - Found a parish record (Household Clerical Surveys, 1880-1893) which states a wedding date of May 6, 1862; confirms Ottarp parish in Sweden as a birthplace. Lists 8 children all together. The Village, Farm, or Croft in the parish is listed as Graset 5 in Landskrona. In an 1890 parish survey, Anders' occupation is listed as "Bierhandl". Cannot find a translation, but it appears to be something to do with beer - possibly a bartender/saloonkeeper. Maybe worked in a brewery?

This collection includes household examination rolls/clerical survey records (Husförhör) primarily for the counties of Värmland, Älvsborg and Kalmar for the years 1880 through 1893.

Household examination rolls make up the main church register in Sweden. In them, everyone in a parish, including children, is listed household by household. These records came about from examinations held each year to determine people’s knowledge of the catechism.

The household examination has details such as name, occupation, date of birth, birth parish, marriage, etc. The records also have information about when people moved to and from the farms or crofts. The entire family is listed together, which makes it easy to find a person’s children or parents. The examination forms typically cover a five-year period, which can provide interesting details about how a household may have changed over that time.

These records are particularly valuable because they allow you to track your ancestors from place to place in Sweden. If your ancestor immigrated to America, that date will also be noted in the records, although the specific destination is typically not listed. Use that date to locate your ancestor in the Gothenburg, Sweden, Passenger Lists, 1869–1951.

Most persons in the original record were not listed with surnames. In order to assist in searching records, surnames have been inferred. During this time period, surnames could be inherited, patronymic, or taken from another source such as a farm name. The inferred surnames are to be used as a guide.

Because vital events are often recorded in these records, they can be used in conjunction with the births, marriages, and deaths in Sweden, Church Records, 1500-1941, to help fill out what you know about the family.

Abbreviations commonly found in these records include:

   D. or dtr. – dotter (daughter)
   do – ditto
   Dr. – dräng (male farmhand)
   f.d.—före detta (former)
   Hn – hustrun (wife)
   M. – mannen (the man)
   Pig. – piga (woman farmhand)
   S. – sonen (son)
