Råneå Church

Råneå, Sweden

Construction of the church in 'Råhneå village' probably began in 1642 and it was fairly finished in 1646. In the 1700s the church became too small and 1854-1857 the present church was built. It is a hall church with three naves, built at the same place as the first church. The new church was drawn by J. F. Åbom.

Hello. My maiden name was Englund. I have relatives in Ranea Sweden, I believe. My grandfather and grandmother were both born there over a century ago. I am trying to connect with relatives in Ranea because I am planning a trip to visit Ranea Sweden in July of 2018. I would love to meet and see any relatives that are there. Can you help me in any way? My name is Marcia (Englund) Logan and I live in the United States in the state of Washington. My email is: marcialynnlogan@gmail.com Thank you

Alltid rogivande att besöka kyrkan är en mycket fin kyrka som man blir glad av att se.
Carl-Henrik Gustafson (3 years ago)
Jättefin kyrka med ovanlig placering av koret. Koret finns placerad på långsidan av kyrkan och kyrkbänkarna står liknande ett genomskuret U.

Trevligt ställe.

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
