Denise,
afsk. means discharged or resigned (afskedade) skrif is penman or writing master, not sure what munster is. Mönster is having to do with muster, as in the military. A mönsterskrifvare was a master clerk whose duty was to record the enrolled soldiers or a draftsman, writer of patterns. From "Swedish Genealogical Dictionary" by Phyllis J Pladsen et al.

Hi Karen
Thank-you for you for the information. This Boström family is getting very confusing to research. I don't know if I should be in Finland, Sweden, or somewhere in between. :D

I appreciate your time,
Best Regards,
Denise
