Side B of the Flyttningsbevis

The earlier entry on Caroline sparked some interest and contact with a distant cousin, Sharon Risvold. Sharon is the great-granddaughter of Caroline Sofia Johnson Swearingen; while Caroline is my great-great-grandmother. She and I have been in contact and she has provided this next artifact. It is the paperwork allowing Caroline and Alfred, under the sponsorship of Pastor J A Johnnson, to emigrate from Sweden to North America. For those of you that can read Swedish, you will understand this far better than I can.

Once again my thanks to the Swearingen side of the family that kept this (and other) important family artifacts[
