1856 Jamestown Congregation List


Notes: The Jamestown congregation list included 165 individuals: immigrants and first-generation Swedish American children. He identified Jamestown, Frewsburg, and Cherry Creek as places where members of this congregation lived. 

The errors in Swensson's list have been corrected with documented birth dates and places that are shown in bold italics. Listings in this database that are highlighted in pink indicate that substantial documentation about these individuals and families in America has not been found.
