The Luck of the Draw

The Luck of the Draw


Anders Larsson and family, Björklund, Lindesberg, Örebro Län, Sweden, 1861-1870


This has never, ever happened to me before. I found my Swedish great-great-grandparents at the top of the first page of the first parish book I looked at this morning!

I was searching Swedish parish records this morning (btw, thanks for buying Genline and saving me some money, Ancestry!). My search for a particular parish revealed 72 hits and there they were right at the top of the first book. I may have to lie down in a darkened room to recover!
