I am researching the the family history of John Frederick Swanberg.My Grandfather, Andrew Erick Swanberg, was born September 26, 1855 in a town called either Flackboe or Fleckboe, Provience of Vestmannalan, Sweden to John Frederick Swanberg. The family name of Andrew's mother is not known but we think her first name may have been Johanna.Andrew immigrated to the United States in 1876 and started working on the railroads in Kentucky, Tennesse, and Florida.In 1886 or 1887 Andrew married Johanna Jerina Johnson.Johanna was born September 7, 1867, in Vesterass, Provience of Vestmanlands, Sweden. Johanna immigrated to the United states in 1886 or 1887.After the marriage Andrew and Johanna settled in a town called Grantsburg, which is located in North West Wisconsin. They built a farm and Andrew continued to combine working on the railroad with farming.Andrew died 1902 and Johanna in 1925.Any help or suggestions anyone can make as to how to search records in Sweden will be appreciated. I neither write or speak Swedish,
