Thanks Martin. Point taken about "churchbook" as a citation.

You are saying the Ellis Island immigration record we found,
Caroline Nelson
Arrive New York 25 SEPTEMBER 1904
is NOT correct for Karolina Nelson born 25-2-1880, Skane, Sweden, who departed Båstad 14 September 1904, going to Grimsby?


Your dates are different, I called the sister Amelie, you say she's Annie - but basically, you are saying I found the wrong Ellis Island record.

I never did understand the reference to Grimsby - and how it is known Carolina departed for America from Grimsby on that date.

We will look again at Ellis Island site.

Thank you again so much!

Here is the complete reference from Lena in Sweden:

"Carolina was born in Kärragård no 3 in Hovs parish, Kristianstad province Skane Sweden in 1880-02-25. He parents
Nils Peter Hansson and Elna Jönsson.
Births book Kristiastads provine, Hovs parish 1880.

In Household examination 1888-1895 she lived with he parents, sisters and brothers. In 1890 the move to a place Segeltorp
also in Hovs parish.

In parishbook 1900- Carolina move to Båstad no 32 in Båstads parish Kristianstads province and in that book, there is writing that she emig. 14 sept. 1904 to Amerika.
