Is it a light week this week, with only one anniversary and one birthday.

May 22
Nils Larsson and Karin Engelbrektsdotter [1548] my sixth great-grandparents were married on this date in 1726 in Eksharad, Varmlands lan, Sweden. Nils Larsson (1706-1791) was the son of Lars Nilsson [4989] and Kerstin Persdotter [4990]. Karin Engelbrektsdotter (1700-1775) was the daughter of Engelbrekt Sonesson [4991] and Marit Hakansdotter [4992]. Nils and Karin had five children. 

May 24
Anders Hakansson [4340] my fifth great-grandfather, was born on this date in Fastnas, Norra Ny, Varmlands lan, Sweden. His parents were Hakan Andersson [4902] and Kerstin Andersdotter [4903). In 1761 he married Anna Nilsdotter [4341] (1737-1815) in Eksharad, Varmlands lan, Sweden. (Her parents are the couple listed in the May 22 entry!). Anders and Anna had five children.

Do any of these names and families sound familiar? We might share family members - and I would enjoy hearing from you and sharing information. Please contact me.
