A little family history

A little family history

Hello and welcome to my family history.

My research extends mainly over Bohuslän,

where my father and mother's family comes from,

and also on Torsö in Skaraborg where my grandfather came from.

        Hope you find my research interesting, and maybe it can help you find some missing relatives.

I now make a second review of my research, and directed me to look for estate inventories.

It has done that I found new connections - a relationship between several people. More children in the family and also been able to remove children who have not been alive when the estate inventory.

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 Callmer family.

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.

Some tragic events:

My grandmother Hilda Wallström (house 103) Kyrkogatan 37, lived next-door neighbors in Gravarne to her ​​seven cousins ​​and their parents Anna Christina Wallström and Carl Anton Larsson. (house 91), Hans Lots Gata 6.

Father Carl Anton died of tuberculosis (TBC) in 1893, and his son Carl Arthur dies 1 ½ month later, also of TBC.

Easter of 1895 becomes mother Anna Christina and her six daughters inside burned home in a ferocious fire. No house is there today.            -journal note!


My grandmother Walborg Carlsson had nine Brothers and sisters. Mother Mary and five children died between 1896-1898, several died of TBC.

Her father Carl Anton Carlsson marries with his ex-wife's sister Amanda 1899. Carl Anton dies in 1902 also of TBC. Amanda was then alone with Carl Paulinius, Walborg and Hulda. Carl Paulinius died 1911, 26 years old, also of TBC.

Hulda, Walborgs sister later married her cousin Oliver Julius Hansson, who is the great uncle to Bo Hansson, a known famous sports commentator of Swedish television.

About my genealogy

I am doing a deeper research right now on my father's ancestors in and around Kungshamn.

Between May 2012 to June 2013 I researched a lot in Skee, where my grandmother's family comes from. When I got deeper into the family tree around 17th and the 18th century,  numerous branches was linked from my father's side around Tjärnö, and my mother's side around Skee.

So it now ended up being a greater research that included the whole family.

I´ve have had very good use of

www.slaktdata.org. Otherwise it has been www.arkivdigital.se and www.ancestry.se which has been the main programs that I had my genealogy with.

At the right you will find several good links to use in your research.
