Willy Kinberg

Willy Kinberg – Ancestry

I will dedicate pages to my grandfather Willy and  his  book with the Swedish title “Världens och människans uppkomst” (The arise of the Universe and Mankind).
But before I continue with his book I want to tell some about his ancestors, beginning with Willys grandmothers father.

A. Willys grandmothers father
Johan Henrik Kinberg 
born 1/11 1782 in Grönby married Margareta (Louise) Lovisa Schlyter and got five childrens among others:

  • Lovisa Wilhelmina (Minna) Helena Kinberg born 18/8 1814
    (Willys grandmother).
  • Johan Gustaf Hjalmar Kinberg born 13/5 1820 
    (Willys grandmothers brother) Johan died 29/8 1908 in Stockholm.


 Johan Gustaf Hjalmar Kinberg was born 13/5 1820  (Read in Runeberg).
He sailed around the world with the Swedish warship Eugenie 1851-1853 (Link). (Click on the worldmap and painting below)

General relativity equation publish 1915.Willy Peterson Kinberg wrote a very ambitious book in German called “Wie entstanden Weltall und Menschheit?” (1) published  in Freiburg 1906, the year after Albert Einstein published the theory of special relativity and 9 years before the publication of the  general relativity theory, see Einsteins field equation below.
The book was sold in 20.000 copies in a few month (according to C.A. Claus, the german-Swedish translator)

Willy decided to translate it to Swedish with the title “Världens och Människans Uppkomst“.


The English title could be “The Creation of the World and Human kind“.

Willy Kinberg 1I have the Swedish book that Willy gave to his parents with the signature “Tillägnat Föräldrarna av förf. Freiburg den 28/11 2008” (“Dedicated to the parents from the writer.”) the same year the book was published. This is of course a very special book not only because of its content but also because of the family story it holds.

I have all my life been intrested in the subject Creation.  When I got this book in my hands  I  decided to start the project “The creation 100 years later” and document the main part of it in (https://mygrandfather.wordpress.com/).

As I am not so good in reading German with the  old font,  I  decided read the book in Swedish but to publish scanned pages of the German version here on this site under Cosmology ->Willy Kinberg

  1. Intressant att läsa eftersom min morfar var George Kinberg, Willys bror och både min båt och mitt företag fått namn efter Selma Kull, gift med Wilhelm K och alltså min mors farmor och din fars farmor.
