This is a site about the great Nycander family started in
December 2006 by Christian Persson (a Nycander descendant)
living in Solna, Sweden.
I was fortune to find an old book by Oscar Nycander(1857-1932)
about the Nycander family´s development since 350 years back,
printed only in 250 copies . This book was published in 1909
still an enourmous source of information of the Nycander family. The
book is very rare. It was
dedicated to Lagrelius, Axel (1863-1944),
famous cartographer in Sweden who also worked at the
Swedish court. The book is now published in
this website after scanning.
Nycander was Petrus
Laurentii Nycander. He died 12th of June 1679 in
Sweden. He probaly took the name Nycander. According to Oscar Nycander
he was born Petrus Laurenties Nycopensis. And the name Nycopensis
probaly came from the Swedish town Nyköping. In the end he was
of the Nyköping school.
There have been many Nycanders over the years that have been succeful
in the professional life. One example was Colonel Carl Nycander who was
in Sweden for many critical decades in the end of the 1800th and in the
beginning of 1900th century. Almost all Nycander from the countries
below has links from him. He was for example commander at
fästing in the end of the swedish time in Finland. In May 2007
Marstrand outside Gothenburg where he was commander between 1811-1826.
This was a very important point from where the west of Sweden was
defended. The picture below is from his commandant building.
Nycanders can be found in several countries thanks to
emigration pioneers like Bernt Axel Nycander. Main Nycander countries
After finding the book I started to
publish pedigree´s about the Nycander´s
starting from the
first Nycander in
the following link.
From the start I deceided to write in english as the Nycanders is based
in several countries (there is also a button on top if you want an
automatic translation in for example to spanish). Right now it consists
of over 1000 people and are still growing
thank´s to a lot of helpful relatives in the Nycander world.
publish family data like dates photos and stories. This is really the
core of Nycander.nu. My aim is to get a complete pictures of all
descedants and add on as many photos and relevant data as possible.
Press the button after the name of the person and you can
back and forth through the generations. The
background program that is used is called DISGEN, a program
for genealogist from where I have enter Nycander data and generate part
of this website. For the actual site I am using NVU-program.
I have made a special PDF-familytree in A0-format starting from Carl
forward as long as I have data. As this is dependent on the family data
and this is changing and I don´t have any automatic function
please contact me via mail.
I can send you a pdf-document but if you want it on paper you surely
need help from a printing company. The printout has been distributed to
some Nycander descedants and I belive it has been very appreciated. A
Welcome to write your comment of this site in the guestbook

There is a street in Hangö, Finland
that is named after Carl Nycander
since he was the last commander at Hangö fästing. It
"Nycandersgatan" which is swedish for Nycander street. See
There is a lot of people that has contributed
to this site and I am also looking forward in future cooperation.
