  2. No, it is not the church in Vegby. There are no church, because the parish is Södra Säm and Vegby belong to Södra Säm.
    In old times there was an church in the village Södra Säm, it was probably built 1250-1300. http://www.ulricehamn.se/ulh_templates/Information.aspx?id=14462

    It was abandoned and became a destiny Church in 1824, and a new church was built in Gällstad.

    The church on my blog is a church I found on Internet,,;)

    I know that Ludwig have been in that church, it was so very common that people went to the church every Sunday. I am also sure he had his first communion there too.
