From Östernärke to America : Emigration from Asker, Lännäs and Stora Mellösa : a comparative analysis during 1856-1870, 1881-1895 and 1901-1915 (English)
Abstract [en]

From the mid 19th century to the early 20th century about 1.2 million Swedes left Sweden for a new life in America. Three parishes in Örebro län is at the centre of the research of this essay. The time span of this essay ranges from 1856-1915, divided into three periods; 1856-1870, 1881-1895 and 1901-1915. The main objective has been to compare the three parishes with each other, with Örebro län and with Sweden. What I have wanted to examine has been the following: How many people from each parish emigrated during each period? How many were men, women and children up to the age of 15? In the analysis part of the essay the results were compared parish with parish, and with Örebro län and Sweden. The analysis showed that the emigration of three parishes is commensurate with the Swedish emigration history. The years that the emigration reached its peak during each time period, does coinsist well with Sweden in general. For example, during the first period, 1856-1870, the emigration reached its peak in 1869, one of the worst years during the famine years. The Swedish emigration has transformed from family emigration to people emigrating on their own, which in my research is verified by the decreasing number of emigrating children.
