  • Crazy Scandinavian surnames

    How can my brother be in a surname study for a Scandinavian name when they change each generation?! We got some tremendous help finding our ancestors from a Scandinavian genealogy forum, anbytarforum http://genealogi.aland.net/discus/me...rd-topics.html. But, the surnames change each generation. Sven Eriksson's son's name is Carl Svensson, not Eriksson. I'm sure there are others on here with this dilema. How does the surname project progress with this?

    I have to give kudos to the folks on the site. We now have 14 generations of my father's paternal side now. Prior to the site, we had 5. All in about a week.

    ETA oh yes, the site is in Swedish and a cousin of ours knows Swedish so that helps.
