Peter Spjufs Bibel - Rudenius släktbibel

Holy wings

ancient wings
bringing the roots back
for safe hearts

Carpe Diem: The Holy Bible.

More holy to me is my family and my roots. I have done a lot of genealogy. I can go back to early 16oo. It is so interesting.
My father’s mother‘s father’s father  – Peter Spjuf – bought this Bible 1849. He was a soldier and married Elin 1833 … and her farm since in my part of Sweden the daughters also inherited equal as sons (different from the rest of Sweden at that time).

    1. Oh how interesting! Do you know anything about your relatives in Sweden? Have you been to Jönköping? I have many relatives in US both on my mother’s and father’s side. This I will dig more about in the future.

      1. No, I have not researched. His niece has done some research but I am not sure how much. She has the family bible that is in Swedish. We hope to visit the area in a year or so depending on my husband’s health.
