Is it a light week this week, with only one anniversary and one birthday.
Nils Larsson and Karin Engelbrektsdotter  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  and Kerstin Persdotter . Karin Engelbrektsdotter (1700-1775) was the daughter of Engelbrekt Sonesson  and Marit Hakansdotter . Nils and Karin had five children.
