Håkan Olofsson finding birth record in microfilm

Håkan Olofsson finding birth record in microfilm

Classification: Query
I am using familysearch. A hint came up for Håkan Olofsson, but the Record Hint says "This record came from this set of images. You will need to look through several images to find this record. Browse the film." I've tried looking through the record online, but I cannot find where the births/baptisms are recorded. Can anyone look at the attached images (from the hint) and help me know where to look? Thank you in advance.

Hi,

You can search by film or fiche number on FamilySearch. From the homepage, click on the "Search" pull down menu and chose "Records". On the next page, you can choose "Film Number" just above the Search button.

Here's the link to the record, you'll need to be signed into FamilySearch:

https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&...

A problem: in order to see the actual image of the record, you have to be a member of the church or visit one of the FamilySearch libraries. Might be a copyright issue.

BTW, being born in one county and christened in another would be unusual. Wouldn't trust that transcript.

Västerstad (M) CI:1 (1736-1789) Image 15 / Page 7 (AID: v110359.b15.s7, NAD: SE/LLA/13469):

Håkan born 3 Sep 1739, baptised 12th Sunday post Trinity (9 Sep 1739), father Olof Olsson of number 4 Gummastorp.

So he was not born in Vallentuna, there is in fact a gap in the Vallentuna birth records 1695-1748.

The same record can be seen for free at Riksarkivet: Västerstads kyrkoarkiv, Födelse- och dopböcker, SE/LLA/13469/C I/1 (1736-1789), bildid: C0070478_00016, sida 7

In the 1742 tax lists (compiled Nov 1741) there is an Ola Olsson with wife at Gummastorp number 4.

Perhaps Håkan's parents?

There is unfortunately a gap before 1742 in the tax records, but in the 1728 tax list there is an Ola Olsson without wife, but with a maid, at Gummastorp number 4.
Mantalslängder 1642-1820 Malmöhus län 1658-1820 (M) 57 (1728) Image 2970 / Page 1255 (AID: v842492.b2970.s1255, NAD: SE/RA/5520312).

And in the 1725 list an Ola Olsson with wife and a maid Hanna.
Mantalslängder 1642-1820 Malmöhus län 1658-1820 (M) 53 (1725) Image 3720 / Page 1323 (AID: v842488.b3720.s1323, NAD: SE/RA/5520312).

Not clear if this is the same man as the one in 1742, or perhaps his father, or even unrelated...

Ola Olsson with wife is at Gummastorp number 4 also in the 1743 list.

But not in 1744.

Bo, thank you for your help looking at the different types of records and comparing information. I feel that a lot of my Swedish ancestry has been discovered with your help. As always, I'm very grateful for your insights. All the best!

Wade, thank you for the detailed information for accessing familysearch. Yes, it often seems like there are limitations to what we can actually see. Thanks also for your thoughts on born/christened in different counties. Good to have that heads-up, since I'm not an expert and don't know when to be wary of information. Appreciate your help!
