In my search for my granfather's roots I am asking if anyone can help me
with an Emigranten CD lookup. Here is what I "know".
August (Gus) Swanson (my grandfather) born January 14, 1868 from Oland,
Julius Swanson (Gus' brother) born December 30, 1864 from Oland, Sweden
Estimated (very rough) departure: 1882 - 1885 ?
Their parents names (??) Anders (or Sven or L.P.) Swanson - mother,
Anna L. Nelson
Brothers alledgedly came to USA in late teenage early 20's years - I
don't believe they came on the same ship. The older brother Julius
supposedly came first and then his younger brother later. Parents did
not come. Both Gus and Julius settled in Manistee, Michigan.
Thanking you in advance for your help!
