Thank you solidrock! Interesting. Janet in Kilrenny seems by intuition the most interesting one.
I just found that she came to Sweden when she was 19, in 1920. Would it be possible to search for emmigrant information in Scottish registers?
Any hint for me to go further?
Wow, thank you, solidrock! Apart from the headstone I have no other source yet. May 27 might be the date of baptism. Perhaps the birth date shouldn't be taken too seriously.
Do you mean her name appears some other date in 1801?
Thank you for your contributions. Jenny's headstone is located on Helsingborgs Old Cemitary, about 100 meters from my home.
Jenny should have arrived in Sweden about 1825. However, what I'm looking for is some method to find out where she was born, and who her family were.
We know her birth...
Thank you very much, Steve. I will try some more name variations. Yes, Jenny was Scottish, and there is some biography on her from when she arrived Sweden. But the missing pieces in the puzzle are from her time in Scotland, her childhood, parents, place of birth etc.
I'm Björn Roslund, living i Helsingborg Sweden, looking for any background information about Jenny Duncan, born May 27 1801, dead July 4 1886.
She came to Helsingborg, Sweden (year unknown) and became a famous business women here.
Where she was born, family conditions ... I have no idea.
