Svante M Carlson memorial
I'm happy to accept your edit for the more specific birthplace for Svante Carlson. I knew it was Unnaryd, but not the other detail (county? province? parish?). Svante is my husband's maternal grandfather. May I ask, how are you able to offer this specific data for Svante? Are you related somehow?
Thanks again.

RE: Orlean Nelson
I have been looking for him for quite sometime.
I thought he was in a regular grave,but he is in the mausoleum.

Hi Vage,

OK, that makes sense, I knew things changed over time as those societies moved away from patronymics and toward multi-generational surnames.

We are not related to any of the memorials we maintain, we inherited a bunch of memorials that were created when someone took most of the cemetery website and created memorials for those people on Find A Grave. If you are interested we can transfer to you, as you say you are a distant relative but it doesn't matter to us.

Hi Vage,

Thanks for the info, I will go ahead and update her memorial and link her to John. I thought she was his daughter but couldn't be sure.

I guess I am a bit confused about the patronymics, I know they were used inconsistently, but wouldn't her surname normally be Johansdottir instead of Johansson, or is that only for the mother's name?

Hi Vage,

You have sent me an edit to add a maiden name on her. Looking at the census records for her, it looks like she is the daughter of John Swanson. What is your source for the maiden name of Johansson ?

RE: Gerda B Carlson
The memorials for your relatives in Forest Lawn Cemetery were created by contributor, "MSue". She spelled the name wrong. It is "Bengston". You need to send an edit correction request to her to have the name changed to "Bengtson". You will find the pictures if you look for Bengston.

Actually I just recorded and photographed the cemetery. I did some looking up on Elizabeth and Ruth and found an obituary for Ruth and a couple of death records that I added to them. Please check them out. I hope it helps. Greetings from Michigan. MJ
