  1. I don’t know anything about the photo but I am a distant relative of Traugott Bagge. My maiden name was Bagge and I grew up in Sweden and in the Bagge genealogy calendar Traugott’s father Lorenz can be find. One of my ancestors lived outside Gothenburg and was a reverend in the church of Marstrand. His first name was Fredrik.
