                                                                                                                                        Attempting to trace Swedish roots from the nineteeth century is terrifying, especially when one discovers that "Andersson" is not only one of the most common names in Scandinavia, but also that the Christian names of both my grandfather, August, and his sister, Bertha, were two of the most popular children's names of that period (circa 1860) in both Norway and Sweden

                                                                                                                                        My sincere thanks go to Rolf Persson from the Swedish Geneology Society for his learned assistance in pointing me in the right direction at the correct 'Anderssons', and his help in deciphering the Lutheran Church's Släp Parish records.
