We took the 20 minute ferry from Helsingør, Denmark to Helsingborg, Sweden. We stopped there to look around. It is much larger than I thought and a fun little city...with a great bakery and free hot chocolate at the place we stopped to ask questions.
Pehr Pehrson lived with his ill mother in Rostanga until she died February 15, 1845
We found the little towns but not much we could positively identify as being 200 years old.
This old farmhouse may have been around about then.
After his mother's death, Pehr married Christina Jeppason in Munkarp.
They had 6 children plus Christina's daughter. At least three of them died as children. Pehr and Christina joined the church around 1854-55 and Christina died in 1858. In 1862 Pehr came to Utah with three children, One, Alfred Pehrson, was my great grandfather. It was great to see the countryside and area these ancestors were born and raised in. We will go back when it is warmer.,,
We ended our trip in Malmo and enjoyed their lovely Christmas decorations. Sweden was much more alive with lights than Denmark. Something in almost every window.
