Mappy Monday: Grevie, Skåne, Sweden

This map shows the location of Grevie in the Bjäre district of Skåne lan (county), Sweden. Skåne was created in 1997, when the counties of Kristianstad and Malmöhus were merged. Skåne was formerly in Kristianstad lan. The map also shows the locations of parish churches.

My great-great-grandfather Andreas Troedsson, also known as Andrew T. Anderson, and his ancestors were from Grevie. Grevie is now part of Båstad.
