Today in Family History - 04 Oct

My 2nd great-grandfather Paul Thompson was born on this day in 1847 in Sweden [1, 2]. Efforts to locate the city in which Paul was born and determine his parentage have not been successful as of the date of writing.

My 2nd great-grandmother Anna Christina Nelson (Erickson line) was born on this day in 1851 in Nora, Örebro, Västmanland, Sweden [3, 4, 5].
