Judith Svensson, Boarp Skattegård
and
Axel Fabian Andersson, Lunden Säm
married March 27, 1914
Gällstad, Västergötland.

Reverend R. Thomaeus officiated the ceremony.



This is Lunden, the farm they lived on.




Judith and Axel was my grandparents.
Axel died 1948, before I was born, so I don´t remember him.
Although, I have got his pocket watch, it still works...
Judith died in 1965 and I remember her very well, and actually still miss her....
I still have two crocheted blankets as she has done.

Fearless Females – Prompts for Women’s History Month
March 2
Post a photo of one of your female ancestors. Who is in the photo? When was it taken? Why did you select this photo?

This is my grandmothers sister Jennie Amalia Chilberg. She was born 1874 in Borås, Västergötland. She and her brother Johan August emigrated to South Bend, Amerika in 1891. At that time Jennie was only 17 years old. This photo is taken in Sweden, probably just before she would emigrate. I think she was very brave....
