"Cradled in Sweden." Carl-Erik Johansson, Everton Publishers, 2002. This is a book designed to help a researcher doing work at the LDS library in Salt Lake City. There is a section of the book that might be useful to those who don't own the book called "Alphabetical Index to all Parishes in Sweden." This gives the name of the parish, district, and county as well as the earliest year of both the Parish register and the Clerical survey record. There is also a section on the military names and their meanings. There is NO index information whatsoever on actual people...just research clues for finding out about our ancestors. JHP
