Mappy Monday: Kinneved, Västra Götaland, Sweden

This map shows Kinneved and the surrounding towns in the hundred of Frökind, in the former Skaraborg County in the province of Västergötland, Sweden. In 1997, the counties of Skaraborg, Gothenburg and Bohus, and Älvsborg were merged to form Västra Götaland.

My great-great-grandfather Charles John (Carl Johan) Dahlquist and his parents Johannes Christiansson and Maria Christina Jonsdotter were born in Kinneved.
