Re: ERIKSON/ERICKSON...Sweden to Indiana

In Reply to: ERIKSON/ERICKSON...Sweden to Indiana by Neils Erikson of 23

More work needs to be done gathering clues in the U.S. before you worry about finding an Erik Eriksson in Sweden. (His name is EXCEEDINGLY COMMON.) It can be done, but not with the information you provided.

Could this be your family in 1910?

The above family might work for you. The son Erick is a widower and was born about the right time. There is a little boy born in Ohio but living in Chicago who was born about the right time and who has the right name. However, these people emigrated a lot earlier than 1900.

I see this family on the Emibas CD which includes quite a few of the people listed above. Birthdates also match the approximate years of birth found on the 1910 census. Emibas was made from registrations in the Swedish parish to go to a foreign country. It is about 75% complete.
