Hello from Sandsund!

This information about the marriage of Anders Granlund and Anna Amanda Björn was new to me, but surely right. I suppose that you have more information about this couple. Anders had at least three siblings but I don't know anything more about them than their birthdates.

Anders Granlund's father Gustaf Mattsson Timonen-Granlund also had other children from a previous marriage. These children are ancestors to the Granlund families in Dalabäck.

Anna Amanda Björn also had a previous marriage with Johan Viktor Jansson from Pedersöre due to my records, but there were no children in this marriage.

I know that this wasn't what you were asking about, but if this information completes your database you can call me directly. You can find my phone number in the local "telefonkatalog".

I am going to follow what kind of information this forum will give about your couple.
