Re: Johan and or son Gustav Isenberg born in Sweden

In Reply to: Johan and or son Gustav Isenberg born in Sweden by Julie Landreneau of 473

Does this man have the right birthdate to be Gustaf? I found this information on the Emibas CD, which was made from registrations in the Swedish parish to go to a foreign country. It is about 75% complete.

Try to find a more complete birthdate for this man. The 1900 U.S. Federal Census provides a month and year of birth, a year of immigration, and so forth. U.S. Censuses are not known for great accuracy but they provide a better idea than emigration in "the late 1800s".

Death certificates often provide a birthdate. The registrations for World War I Draft provide full birthdates. Social Security applications provide full birthdates. Church records provide full birthdates. Those are just some examples of places you can search for a birthdate.

This message should also be posted on the Sweden forum. Type Sweden into the "Jump to Forum" space at the top right of this page.

I am not related.
