Can someone tell me how to locate Naturalization papers? My ancestors can be found in the
1880 and 1885 census for Webster Cty. They were Andrew Swanson, his wife Julia Oleson and
their children. Both parents and several children died before 1900. All we know is they
were from Norway. With such common names it is almost impossible to find them in Norwegian
records. Plus we have contradictory info on exact birth year. And some records say Julia
maiden name was Ober. There are no obits or grave records for Andrew or Julia. So we have
hit a major Brick Wall!! Any help or advice is appreciated.
Thank you, Curt
