Today I'd like to share information about this daughter. Her name was Alma Josefina Carlsson.
I found her listed with her parents in this Sweden Household Examination Book from Lista, Sodermanland, Sweden for the years 1886 - 1890.1

Here's a cropped view of the page.

Take a look at the line above Alma Josefina. Another sister named Alma is listed there - Alma Charlotta. Her name is crossed out, just like little Frans Gustaf Carlsson's name was crossed out in the document I shared in my previous post. This document states that Alma Charlotta was born on 23 December 1885 in Lista, Sodermanland, Sweden. It also states that she passed away on 2 October 1886 under the column "Dod."
I already had Alma Charlotta in my database, but not her sister Alma Josefina. So, this was a wonderful discovery for me.
I have found that it is very important to look through all of the years of the Sweden Household Examination Books for the families you are researching. They can contain a wealth of valuable information.
I was able to find my 2nd great-granduncle and aunt, Carl Gustaf Carlsson and Anna Katarina Persdotter, and their family in several Sweden Household Examination Books. In another one, I found additional information about Alma Josefina. I'll share that in a future post.
Thanks for reading!
