Hello Everyone! I have been working on my mothers family line. My
mothers Swedish roots leads me to New Sweden in search of a family
that moved there in 1900. The family name is Stead. I have been in
touch with a few members of this family. But some of the information
on deceased relatives is not to be found.
So my question to this group is who might have the burial records of
your area? I have searched online on may sites with no historical
records for your area to be found. It is very disappointing. Many
websites for geneologist have volunteers for there community post
cemetary records, war records, marriages, etc...
Who would have access to records from 1900 on deaths? I am looking
for information on Anna Charlotta Stead born 4/11/1860 in Sweden and
her husband Teodor Frithiof Stedt born 8/6/1855 in Sweden. They died
sometime between 1900 and 1920.
Can anyone please help me with finding out when and where they were
