Thanks again for the help. I looked at the Baltic map site. I suppose someone else would have taken over the farm after it was burned down. I didn't see any "wirt" on the birth record. There was something before his father's name, but I can't make it out. I know that in the Swedish records the men are usually identified by occupation on the birth records.
I understand that most of the serfs were given surnames by the land owners. My grandfather was named Putne, which I think had something to do with "birds". His mother's surname was Schanlen, which to me sounds more German (?). I only got to page 75 of the census before my so-called "high speed" internet service disconnected me.
I'll let you know the results of my search.
Thank you again. You really are a wonderful source of information.
