Hello Layna!

It is better if you go in on the swedish Roots-page: http://genealogi.aland.net/discus/
because there they can help you better, there are also every parish and town inside... about Skänninge, Östergötland, I have lived there some years, very beutiful and one of the oldest cities in Sweden.

I can not help you so much more, just now I am not home.
Regards
Harri Blomberg

Dear Harri -

I just read this - don't know what your other message meant - maybe some 'higher knowledge' of some sort???
Anyways, this message is clear, & thankyou(for us slow on the uptake).

Wow, you are from my g-grandmother's birthplace! Very Cool!!!

When you are at home could you scan me a photo of Skanninge? That would be awesome!

Where do you now live in Sweden?
Have you ever been to Canada?
I want to go there one day soon to visit the towns of my family's heritage.
I hope I will have that opportunity.

My birthday was on the 8th just passed - I turned 50 - but all say I look 35.
I still wear my hair long ( with just a few strands of gray) & wear long skirts.

I am single & enjoy gardening, family history, sewing, foreign policy, nature, guitar, songwriting & 'Period' movies like 'The Man in the Iron Mask' & 'Pride & Prejudice' (color version)with Jennifer Ehle & Colin Firth.

This is just a little about me, so you know who you are emailing.

Though British/Swedish descent, I was born in Somalia.

Hope to hear from you in the near future & you may email me direct if you wish.

Regards,
Layna
Vancouver.

Layna, I am sorry... I only mean that you also can ask this question on the swedish website "Nättidningen Rötter", because I believe they can better help you. Many of us are specialist in the own area, like Skänninge or another place in Sweden. But can not so much about another areas. About Skänninge, I am not born there, but around 70-80 kilometers from this middelagetown... in Norrköping. I lived in Skänninge 1993-1994 and 1997, but before I ´have lived in Motala and Vadstena, near Skänninge... 15 kilometers from there. Vadstena are famous town because Saint Birgitta started her first monstery (birgittinerorden) in this town, in Skänninge you had another monesteries, called dominikanorden, two cuoples. The first swedish "writer" lived in this town... Petrus de Dacia and in Skänninge you have a famous churchmeting the year 1248.

Regards
Harri Blomberg

Ps. Soon I will send you pictures from Skänninge or adresses you can link to, but now I must go... have a lesson. Ds

Or go inside the page http://www.mjolby.se/
and in the part call "sök" in swedish (search in english)... turism you will find many pictures of Skänninge, today one part of the town district Mjölby. Hammar in Närke are only 60-70 kilometers from Skänninge, near the lake Vättern.
