News: Relatives in Sweden
My great grandmother's Swedish ancestors have finally been found.
The Swedish ancestors of my great grandmother Ane Marie Hansson have now been found. Both parents, Brita Lovisa Johansdotter and Sven Olof Hansson, have had many generations added to the pedigree. While I searched, it soon became clear to me that Brita and Carl ware not the only Swedish relatives who went abroad.
Brita's father, Johan Aron Bengtsson, left his wife in Sweden and travelled to Denmark already, while Brita was a teenager. Whether he ever went back to Sweden is not yet known. Brita's sister Erima travelled to America in approx. 1890.
Both Brita and Carl came from former Danish territoriums, because Brita was from Halland and Carl from Blekinge. That has surely had an influence on their choice to move to Denmark. Furthermore, back then there was a huge demand for labor in Denmark, which probably also played a role.
