"Maybe" this is Mathilda Kristina in 1880. I am not at all sure, but she has a sister Jenny who might be Aunt Jenny, and her father was Johan so she could be Johansdotter using the patronymic customs. Check the parish records to be sure.

This is a bit of information from the death notice of Mathilda Kristina Johansson's funeral.

She was born (född) Johansson. She died in her home at 2:40 P.M. at the age of 58 years, 4 months, and 23 days. Children were in Sweden and in the U.S. and there were grandchildren (barnbarn; children's children), sisters, and friends. It tells that the funeral will be Thursday, the 5th of May at 12:30. (etc., including a gathering = samling; Look at the SweGGate page linked below.) Perhaps a Swede will translate the entire record for you.

Check out this page on the SweGGate site.

Do you have any dates for the Seburgs? Were they from the same parish? Where did they live after emigrating? Were they married in Sweden? Maybe the name was Seberg or (perhaps more likely) Sjöberg in Sweden.

Are you aware of the Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center? They have a website but their extensive collection of records is not online.

http://www.augustana.edu/swenson/

It is time for you to use the Swedish parish records for the others. You have plenty of information to work in those records.

1. The records were kept in the parish, so it is important to see those records. They can be seen for free in Sweden, of course, and can be seen on micofilm you can see for free at the large Mormon Family History Library in Salt Lake City. However, you will spend a lot of money going to those places and you have to pay for hotels and restaurant meals, so researching in those "free" places isn't really free.

You can order microfilms of the Swedish parish records from any Family History Center. You need to pay approximately $5.50 per microfilm for a month's use at the Family History Center and of course you'd need to pay this for all of the many films you need. You have to go to the Family History Center to order and then you wait a few weeks for the films to arrive from Salt Lake City. Then you have to go back to the Family History Center to view the film or films. If you have problems reading those films, you have to pray that someone there has knowledge of Swedish parish records. If not, then you need to scan the copies you make and post them online somewhere so that you can ask others to look at the record and help you.

You could join the fee-based Genline site.

http://www.genline.com

You have a variety of subscription plans to choose from, and there are frequent specials. Just as people seldom pay the sticker price on a new car, it is unnecessary to pay the regular amount for the subscription. Members of certain Swedish American groups or people who read particular genealogical magazines get huge discounts, and if you go to a genealogical conference where Genline has a table, you get the best discounts of all. Each page on Genline has its own unique page number, called a GID number (Genline Identification Number). You can make pages larger or smaller. You can even make the pages lighter or darker and you can't make that sort of adjustment on microfilm. If you have a problem reading a name or a location or a word on a particular page, you post the GID number and someone else with a Genline subscription can look at the record and help you out. Genline is the most convenient way to see the parish records. It is probably even less expensive than microfilm if you plan to see a lot of records.

There are some locations in the U.S. which have Genline.

http://www.genline.com/resources/libraries/usa/usa_a-z.php

2. The SweGGate website describes the Swedish parish records and gives advice on how to use them. Follow the Themes --> Church Records pathway on this site.

http://www.rootsweb.com/~swewgw/

You can find a huge number of Swedish genealogical words on SweGGate. Go to its home page and click on "Dictionaries & Encyclopedias". That leads you to one of the webmaster's glossary pages. The top of that glossary page provides links to more of his glossary pages plus links to glossary pages developed by others.

You need information on the Swedish naming customs. You can find several interesting and very informative articles about those customs by using the Facts --> Names and Naming Practices on the SweGGate site.

The entire SweGGate site is a goldmine of information, most of which is in English.

3. There is great information on the Swedish Roots website too. Don't forget to check out the information on the left side of that page.

http://www.genealogi.se/roots/

4. You can obtain a booklet with an overview of Swedish genealogy. The following url has a link to downloading the free booklet and also a link to ordering the booklet to be sent by mail. The booklet comes very quickly, so it is better than using up a lot of ink and paper copying the download.

http://www.swedenabroad.com/Page____15063.aspx

5. It is best to purchase at least one guidebook. These are excellent. "Your Swedish Roots" is easier to start with and "Cradled in Sweden" is more detailed. I own both.
