ANDERSON;Elisabeth b.Hanson,1891,Sweden
Posted by: Ingrid Wikberg Date: October 29, 2000 at 01:15:49
  of 1963

HELP ME to solve a mystery:
My mothers cousin Elisabeth/Elisa Hansson born 1891 in Jamtland, Sweden.
She left Sweden for USA with friends on the 18th of May 1910 via Trondheim, Norway.
She and three friends of her from the same parrish: Berg in Jamtland, went by the ship 'Tasso',Cunard line.
Her friends: Elisa Erikson b.1887, Gustaf Olson b.1892 and Johan E Lundberg b.1890.

The girls and Gustaf hade Seattle as their destination, but Johan had Minneapolis. This I have found out by the passengerlists of that day in Trondheim,Norway; But as far as I know they first came to England and there they must have travelled with an other ship (Cunard-line?) from Liverpool to America. But wich one? And did they land in N.Y. or ? Can someone help me to solve it out? I don't know were to find an answer, it is like a big mystery and I haven't found about her or her family in USA by my research via www so far.
"My" Elisabeth/Elisa was later married Anderson and they got three children.
I remember my old folks said she lived in Washington, but she could have moved around a little before she settled down for god. So maybe they went to Montreal,Canada? Does anyone know about Elisabeth and/or her friends?
Please give me some advice and help.
