In Reply to: Peter Emanuel Anderson immigrant to America 1912 from Skane Sweden by Debbie Reynvaan of 34

Perhaps this is the arrival of your Peter Emanuel Andersson.

I found this on the Enhanced Ellis Island site.

Age at Arrival: 17 Gender: M Marital Status: S

Port of Departure:        Copenhagen
Manifest Line Number:        0022

(Skifvarp is the old spelling of Skivarp.)

If that person is yours, then this is probably your family in the 1900 Swedish Census CD. (However, since I have to guess about ages and when born, my guess may not be correct.)

1900 Swedish Census CD:

The father matches the father listed on the manifest (and your second message) and the mother's last name is Malmberg. ;-) Peter Emanuel was also born in and lived in Skåne province. (The parish name is the most important information. Records were kept in the parish.) There also is a sister named Maria. (Marie is an Americanization of Maria.)

The father's patronymic last name was Andersson (which literally means son of Anders or Andreas) and the son Peter Emanuel kept his father's patronymic last name instead of using his own (Magnusson or Månsson; Måns is a form of Magnus.) The patronymic naming customs were changing at this time, so it is not unusual that he kept Andersson.

I cannot understand why you wrote:


"I'm pretty sure Anderson was given to him when he got to America."

All he did was drop the second s letter, which was common.

Read about Swedish naming customs here.

I hope this Peter Emanuel was born the right time. Try to include dates of birth in messages.

This is Peter Emanuel leaving Sweden.

Emihamn database (Swedish port departures)

First name: PETER E
Last name: ANDERSSON
Age: 17 Gender: M
Parish: SKIVARP County: M (Malmöhus)
Title/Note: SNICKARE = carpenter
Port: MALMÖ
Date: 1913 03 20
Destination: NEW YORK NY
Fellows: NEJ
Source: 1913:569:4964


This person was one line below on the manifest and had the next ticket number when he left Sweden. He is also going to meet the same person as Peter Emanuel (Otto Lundell). Otto Lundell was the cousin of Peter Emanuel and he was the brother-in-law of Anders.)

First name: ANDERS E
Last name: ANDERSSON
Age: 18 Gender: M
Parish: SKIVARP County: M
Title/Note: ARBETARE = worker
Port: MALMÖ
Date: 1913 03 20
Destination: NEW YORK NY
Fellows: NEJ
Source: 1913:570:4965

This is the best I can do without a birthdate for Peter Emanuel. I am not related.
