Johansson in Oskarshamn

Classification: Query
Surnames: Johansson, Lundberg,
I am researching my 3gr-grandparents who lived in Hogsby, Morlunda, and Doderhault. Their names were August Alfred Johansson (1845) and Maria Karolina Lundberg (1850). Their children were Karl August Jonathon, Alma Axelina Maria, Oskar Arvid Herman, Johan Fridolf Martin, Anton Edvin, Hilding Emanuael, and Axel Harry.
Axel, Anton, and Johan came to the U.S., and the the others stayed in Sweden. I would love to share info.

What **specifically** are you trying to find out?

If you already knew the following, be aware that it is important to name the parish of birth and date of birth for each person, instead of just naming a bunch of parishes where the entire family lived at some point. Records were kept in the parish.

Common names are not much help so the parish information and date of birth are really important. Luckily the Swedes have some great indexes.

**Maybe** this is the emigration of your Axel Harry, but his name is very common and you haven't provided the information from U.S. censuses which provide a year of immigration (1900-1910-1920-1930) and you haven't told us where he lived after emigrating.

Emihamn database:

First name: AXEL H
Last name: JOHANSSON
Age: 19 Gender: M

Here is another maybe.

First name: ANTON
Last name: JOHANSSON
Age: 19 Gender: M
Parish: OSKARSHAMN County: H
Port: GÖTEBORG
Date: 1904 03 02 (March 2)

This seems likely to be the Johan (John) Fridolf Martin in that family, due to the combination of initials, the location from which he emigrated, and the age at emigration.

First name: JOHN F M
Last name: JOHANSSON
Age: 29 Gender: M

I don't see any of the family in the dvd "Swedish Death Index 1901-2009" but the years 1901-1946 are not complete. You can join SVAR (a fee-based site) and try to find them in the scanned birth, marriage, and death records. If they stayed in Oskarshamn, this won't be hard. (It does take a lot of time.) See how to do this using information on this page.

Hi,

Just in case you don't know: The PLF Oskarshamn genealogy group has a set of CDs containing transcripts of the vital records for Kalmar county and parts of neighboring counties. Your parishes are on CD-2, which costs 150 SEK + 50 SEK shipping to the US.

http://www.plfoskarshamn.se/sv/cd-skivor/cd-skiva-2/

Good luck,

Wade

I have a couple of pictures that our family can not identify. They were taken in Oskarshaman. Our family name was Emstrom. Name was changed from Johansson or Johnsson. I found a John Anton Emstrom who immigrated to Chicago and was naturalized in Chicago, Illinois. I would be willing to share info if we are related. We also have Jonsson, Sevensdotter, Gabrielsdotter, and Persson in the family names. Most lived in the Doderhult area. Thank You. Nancy

Nancy,

Maybe someone could help you if you could tell us when John Anton was born and when he came to the U.S. Emström is probably not very common.

On the other hand, names such as Jonsson (literally means son of Jon), Sevensdotter (literally means daughter of Seven), Gabrielsdotter (literally means daughter of Gabriel) and Persson (literally means son of Per) are patronymic last names and not family names. Those patronymic last names changed each generation depending on the given name of the father. You must provide much more information than just a patronymic last name.

Emström is a name which might be misread as Ernström or something else. I see an father named Emström living in Döderhult but I don't see any "John" Anton in that family.
