Re: Would like info on Johan August Johnson Sweden

Here is a possibility with the right given names and a name which would have been Americanized to Johnson. (Johnsson is a very unlikely name in Sweden. It was probably Johansson, Johannesson, Jansson, Jonsson, Jönsson, etc.) His birthdate fits exactly. His time of leaving Sweden is not the same as your information.

Emibas CD:

Emibas is an index made from registrations in the Swedish parish to go to a foreign country. It is about 75% complete.

Post 908193

Jansson, Johan August
Gruvarbetare = mine worker (married man)

b. 2/28/1859 in Norberg, Västmanlands län (Västmanland)

Emigrated 4/15/1889
from Flängan, Norberg, Västmanlands län (Västmanland)
to Nordamerika

Source: Emibas migration file ID: Norberg U 1889 029

County of birth:


Emihamn is another Swedish emigration index. Emihamn was made from registrations with Swedish port police before leaving Sweden to go to a country outside Europe.

Efternamn (last name): JANSON

I don't know if he is yours, but it was a lot easier to "try" to help once you provided a birthdate.

The U.S. Federal Censuses for 1900-1910-1920-1930 provide a column for a year of immigration. What do those columns say?
