I see many requests for a "cd look-up" and would very much appreciate it if
someone with the cd would look up names for me. I am hoping to find a
maiden name and the city or parish of origin of G-grandmother Ingrid, who
died in 1911 in Kenosha WI. I have found no mention of her here except as
"Ingrid" or "Mrs Johnson". My Gr. aunt thought her maiden name may
been "Martinson Knudson" and said she was from a big city in southern
Sweden and she came to Chicago area as young woman to "work in the home of
a rich person." She met Isak in Chicago area. They married in Sweden
(about 1896), and again returned to Sweden for the birth of my Great Aunt,
Alfahild Elvera Linnea Johnson, b. 27 November 1899.
G-grandfather Isak (Jack) P. JOHNSSON never became a citizen of US but
began Naturaliation process at least twice. He originally came from Sweden
(Lulea) possibly in 1887, then again Oct 1891 (New York/Chicago). He may
have traveled with a sister Anna on one of these trips.
Isak's papers state he also arrived NY September 1901. This time he would
probably be travelling with wife Ingrid, daughter Lillian (b.1897 in
Illinois) and daughter Alfahild Elvera Linnea (b.1899 in Sweden).
I know this is a lot of information; I'm not sure what kinds of records or
indexes are available on the cd, so I included most of what I know. I am
most appreciative of any help- thank you.
