Good Afternoon,
I am having problems finding my Great-Grandfather Gust Dahlquist. Family records show he was born in Smoland, Sweden, on November 11, 1855. Came to the US around 1880-1881, ended up in Sycamore, Illinois. He married Alida Anderson in 1893. and his marriage license list he parents as Charles and Mary Anderson. Family lore has it he was born Sven Gust Carlsson. I have found Sven Gustaf Carlsson born November 11, 1852, in Mistelås, Kronoberg, Sweden. I am lost. The ages he gives in each of the US Census goes back to birth year of 1855. So, I need help. Is Smoland the same as Mistelås, Kronoberg, Sweden, why the 3 year difference in birth year. I have ArkivDigital, I just need to know what area to look in.
Thank you so much,
Kayla Kittleson
