About the Wennberg name

As we know, there are several connections between the Lindman and Wennberg families. Salomon Lindman jr. was just as much a Wennberg as he was a Lindman. And up to now, the oldest Wennberg ancestor that we knew was Olof Wennberg, a rural innkeeper in Mulseryd in the county of Jönköping. But today I had an email from a genealogist, Martin Brandt, who has just found his death record. There his name was spelled Olof Petter Värnberg and his parents were evidently Johannes and Anna-Stina Värnberg. Interesting how names change over time. Maybe Olof Petter started to use an alternative spelling of his name, which was also used by his children.
