Subject: Cherstin Olsdotter, born September 27, 1839, Dalarna County

Classification: Query
Surnames: Olsdotter, Larsson, Povals?

Attempting to find birth records on my great grandmother. Likely born in Gagnef parish, but unable to find information in the digital data base where parish records are now kept. She emigrated to the U.S. in 1871, so the 1880 census data is not helpful. Married Lars Larsson (b. August 7 1839, Appelbo) in December 1866, Appelbo. One son, Lars Wilhelm, born April 6, 1867, Soderala parish.
Her first name also spelled Kerstin, Christine or Christina in family records. Povals surname also comes up - perhaps a farm name? Coming to Sweden in 3 weeks, thanks for any help you can provide.
