Anders in Falun

Tru here.

Anders Hindersson “Kast” was born 1698, probably in Falun (since that is where his eldest son was born).  He is a grandfather in the “Wester” branches of our tree.  We dont know when he died, but the 1749-1762 parish records show the death of his wife in 1753.  So Anders was still alive in 1762 (at 64 years old).
My Swedish cousins say that Anders was a miner by profession.

The Great Copper Mountain in Falun is on the World Heritage List (see Links).

Wiki says “since mining was often done in an unplanned manner, it was not uncommon for collapses. In 1687 most of the mine collapsed. Fortunately, it happened in the middle of summer, during one of Sweden’s biggest holidays, and nobody was hurt.”  The mine collapsed on 25 June 1687 … so Anders’ mining was done AFTER the big collapse.

“The area is divided into three parts: the city of Falun, the mine and the miners’ buildings. The mine is the central part of the company and has traces back to the 700s. The extraction of copper ore was very important, especially in the 1600s and 1700s, and did at the time Falun to Sweden’s second largest city. The copper ore was exported to most of Europe .” — Google translation from https://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falun_og_Kopparbergslagen

Our village in a nutshell.

Written By: Elisabet Hemström , and shared with permission.  Translation by Google.

Falubygdens Släktforskarförening’s area of ​​interest and activity consists in principle of the current Falu municipality, ie the city of Falu and the old parishes Aspeboda, Bjursås, Enviken, Kopparberg, Sundborn, Svärdsjö and Vika. The latter two also include Svartnäs and Hosjö chapel parishes. In addition, we must to some extent be allowed to count Torsång in our area, as it is the old mother parish for the entire area around Kopparberget. The parish boundary between Torsång and Aspeboda has also been changed on several occasions, so that some current Torsång villages previously belonged to Aspeboda and vice versa.

In general, the area has very old origins. The lands around the widely branched system of lakes and rivers with Lake Runn in the center have attracted settlement since the Old Stone Age. Since the ore deposit at Tiskasjöberg – ie the Falu mine – was discovered during the Iron Age or the Viking Age, colonization gained further momentum. In summary, it can be said that Stora Kopparberg, Aspeboda, Vika and partly Sundborn are the parishes where mining was more important than agriculture. Other parishes in the municipality are predominantly agricultural.

Below is a brief presentation of the parishes, hopefully for the benefit of those genealogists who do not know the area.

Falun

According to the latest findings, the Falu copper mine has been in operation since the 600s and 700s or perhaps even earlier. Mining and smelting of the ore required workers and eventually a settlement grew in the vicinity of the mine. In 1641, Falun received city privileges and became Sweden’s second city in size. Towards the end of the 17th century, the ore supply in the mine decreased and thus also the city’s expansion. In 1761, most of Falun was destroyed by two large fires. In the middle of the 19th century, a new upswing came with the railway, which opened up the possibility of new industries. Falun has been a city of residence in Kopparberg (now Dalarna) county since its foundation. The city is also one of Sweden’s best-preserved wooden cities.
Kristine Church was built 1642-1660. Kopparbergs church, which is the city’s oldest church, see Kopparbergsparish.
