BTW, is there any information in the Swedish records on Joel Kinnaman and Alicia Vikander?

I am not subscribed to their archives. So, it will be difficult to search. But, there is a tip. Kindly, go to FamilySearch catalog and filter the “SEARCH THESE FAMILY HISTORY CENTERS:” to “Online”. Here’s the link: https://familysearch.org/catalog/search

You can go to Swedish birth index in Ancestry.com as well: http://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=2262

@ Manila

Mercedes Forno León was Italian from father’s side (“Forno”). “León” is Spanish.

“Olaciregui” is Basque surname. Sofia could have other Italian ancestry, “Balti” and “Capella” can be Italian surnames, expecially “Balti” I don’t think it’s Spanish.
