Welcome to the Degerfors genealogy page !


Degerfors is a parish in Västerbotten in northern Sweden. Many of my ancestors came from here and here is my way of sharing my genealogy efforts in the area with you. Hopefully, this will be a way for american descendants to find their ancestors in the area. Welcome!
