In 1839 Ola and Hanna had their first child, a boy, born in Västerstad in Skåne. He was christianed to Christian. My grandfather Otto´s father. In 1849 the family moved to Gunnarp close to Höör in Skåne.
Christian had a brother Magnus and a sister Matilda. These two each married and had own families. Three of their children emigrated later to America, while brother Christian remained in Sweden. This film shows a bit of the background and enviroment in Gunnarp. Not so far from Västerstad.
