I am researching the Dahlen line of a family friend. I have Magnus Dahlen's arrival (from Sweden) into the U.S. The family ultimately settled in Minnesota.
However, I appear stuck on the exact location within Sweden, from where the family came. I am looking for the city/province, in order to continue researching the family line in Europe. Magnus E. Dahlen was born in Sweden in March, 1849. His son, Magnus Jr., was also born in Sweden, December 1866. Magnus (Sr.) remarried after Jr.'s mother passed away. The wife, at the time of immigration to the States, was Karin. She was Jr.'s stepmother. We do not know the name of Magnus Jr.'s birth mother, at this time. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help.
