The purpose of the material in this section of the Web site (this page and the pages provided by the directory links included above) is to provide you with genealogy information about Håll Per Persson & Rombo Anna Andersdotter and their family. Håll Per & Rombo Anna were selected for the focus here because they are the parents and grandparents of a group of individuals that immigrated to Isanti County, Minnesota in the United States and other parts of the world. Those that immigrated to Minnesota changed their names to Halden, Lavander, and Peterson.

The material in this section includes:
a. Listing by full name (Personregister), the links to these pages are included on this page and at the bottom of individual pedigree charts
b. Surname, family name register (Efternamnsregister), the links to these page are now found at the bottom of individual pedigree charts
c. Place register, cemeteries (Ortregister), the links to these page are now found at the bottom of individual pedigree charts
These items are use to direct you to the pedigree charts (charts showing the parents, grandparents, etc.) for individuals of interest to you.

The navigation between pages in this section will be revised to make easier to use.

It would be helpful to learn some Swedish words to use the genealogy information provided here. We will be building a small dictionary here.

Why is there the word Håll in front of many of the names of our ancestors, e.g. Håll Per Persson? Håll is the name of a farm, in Swedish it is a gårdsnamn. Many of our ancestors were born on or lived on the Håll farm.

For example, let's take the names of Håll Per Persson and Rombo Anna Andersdotter. Håll Per married Rombo Anna. This would be translated as: Per Persson from the Håll farm married Anna Andersdotter from the Rombo farm.

There is additional information about gårdsnamn at the Dalarna tab in introductory section of this Web site.
