Some Swedish Information
Posted by: Judy Baouab (ID *****7724) Date: March 28, 2012 at 07:23:52
In Reply to: Walter, William Halberg, Elsie Wheeler by Barbara smith of 14013

I used Cullen's information and found this family on the Emibas CD. Emibas is an index made from registrations in the Swedish parish to go to a foreign country. It is about 75% complete.

The family didn't use Halberg at that time, but that is not unusual. Most Swedes left Sweden using their patronymic (son/dotter) name and only later changed to a surname such as Halberg. Swedes LOVE to change names and emigrating is a perfect excuse to do that.

They didn't come "from Stockholm", but that is not unusual either. Most people seem to think their ancestors came from Stockholm (They think Stockholm city but there is also a Stockholm county.) Often we find that they came from a parish in a county NEAR Stockholm but other times we find they lived far from Stockholm.

Emihamn database:

Emihamn is an index made from registrations with Swedish port police before leaving Sweden. There are about 1.1 million entries on Emihamn but many Swedes aren't listed because they left through a port in another country such as Norway, Denmark, and Germany.

I found part of your family there.

I don't see the husband/father, however. It might be that he left earlier than the rest of his family but the transcriber didn't notice that or the priest back in 1891 didn't notice that. He also might have been accidentally left off the transcription of Emihamn or the travel agent in 1891 forgot to list him.
