I have been trying to find out when my g grandfather came to America and what name he used
when traveling. In Sweden he was KARL JOHANNISSON but in the U.S. he became CARL(KARL)
JOHANNISSON ECKSTROM.On the ships passenger lists should I be looking for JOHANNISSON or
ECKSTROM? I have two pieces of information that conflict. The first one saying he received
his moving letter Oct. 28, 1869 and the another that says he arrived in the U.S. in 1867.
I am also trying to find the same information about my g grandmother AQVILINA WILHELMINA
SVENSSON.This is her maiden name . She came over to this country with two her children ,
TILLIE and AUGUSTA.I have no idea what her married name was when she arrived . Once she
arrived in Minnesota she married my g grandfather. Would she have come over using her
maiden name or her married name?She arrived in America in 1868.
