My great grandmother, Josefina Charlotta Johansdotter, was born 14 July 1873 in the village of Upsala, in Hinneryd parish, in Kronobergs county (Småland), Sweden, and my great-grandfather was Axel Svensson, born 7 June 1868 in Altaböke, Hinneryd. Josefina grew up in nearby Knäred parish in Halland county, and although they were born in the same parish, Josefina and Axel never met until they came to America and each settled in DuBois, Pennsylvania. They had 3 children: Rachel Axelina, Harry Wilnor, and my grandmother, Isabella Anna Sophia.
In this site, you'll find Swedish family recipes, genealogical information, and a database of my Swedish ancestors and distant cousins. I have family members recorded from many places, mostly in the provinces of HALLAND, SMÅLAND, and SKÅNE in Southern Sweden. Check out my links above.
