Can anyone tell me when and why Dahlkar, Dahlkarl in Vörå became Dahlroos in some cases? It appears to begin in the 1870's.

Hi Karen ! As you noticed there are no records in HisKi for 1870. In Talko I found 6 records for Dahlroos 1792-1841 in Vörå.

Quick look to Vörå communion book 1870-1880 shows that some people on Dahlkarl farm in Koskeby used surnames. There's also Dalström and Dalquist. No idea whether they have family connection to the farmers or not.

Thank you both. Wondering if it's possible that to differentiate the families on Dahlkarl farm that they chose to construct different forms of Dahl..adding different endings, qvist, ström, grén. Just a thought. In the US many reverted to just Dahl.
