I am interested in filling in family history/genealogy and learning something about northern VÃ¤sterbotten, where they came from. My great-grandfather, Gustaf Andersson was born in the village of LÃ¥ngvattnet in 1855. His father was Anders Johansson 1824-1882, and his great grandfather, Johan Andersson, (1763-1843) moved his family from MjÃ¶dvattnet (BurtrÃ¤sk) to LÃ¥ngvattnet in 1817. I can trace the line back another six generations in MjÃ¶dvattnet. Would anyone familiar with the history of this area like to tell me something about the history of these villages? Do they still exist? Has anyone traced the same lineage?
