Welcome to the genealogy world! / aug-2016
My mother Ulla:
Her mother Walborg Carlsson came from Krokstrand, Skee, (O). Where I have been able to follow the family down to the 14th century.
Her father Hans Hansson was born in Nolby Nolgård, Torsö, (R). Where have I been able to follow the family down to the 17th century.
They were never married, and my mother's birth certificate says father Unknown.
Hans Hansson, however, had contact with Ulla while growing up, so my mother always knew who her father was.
She lived in Herrljunga as a foster Child until age 10, and later ended up in the new foster family, Oscar and Anna Callmer in Gothenburg.
She was adopted a few years later by Callmers and therefore, I have also a link to
The main research is focused on my biological grandparents.
My father Torsten:
My research is mostly concentrated around the areas Sotenäs ochTjärnö.
Unfortunatel, much was distroyed in a fire in Tossene rectory 1898. Thanks to the fine work of Sotenäs Personal History Association, much has been reconstructed in the parish lengths.
One branch comes from Gåsö and Skaftölandet where my great grandmother Helena Jonsdotter born 1815 came from.
"Hans Lots" (Hans the Pilot") b.1785, my great-great-great grandfather* whose real name was Hans Andersson became known that he survived as a guide, when he would pilot the English warship home to England in December 1811.
In the storm that followed killed about 1,380 English sailors.
