Titel: Help with word in death record
Skrivet av: Linda Horosko skrivet 2018-06-30, 07:09
In the church records for Follinge Jamtland the death record for my 5th great grandfather Pehr Olofsson Brunberg on January 28 1799 describes him as a "Nybyggaren" which Google translates as "colonist".  Can anyone provide additional information or explanation about that reference?
Thanks in advance,Linda from Canada
