Does anyone have any ideas on where to search for my great grandfather Ernst Wilhelm
Anderson (b 16 Jul 1865 Skaraborg)? He was supposedly brought up by an aunt, but haven’t
found him anywhere since he was three years old in 1868, until he got married in Boston in
His mother Dorothea Maximilana Anderson and he moved out of Norra Sam, Alvsborg on 22 Oct
1868, they are found moving in the same day in records Skölvene (P) B:1 (1862-1894) Image
140 (AID: v44428.b140, NAD: SE/GLA/13486), and moving out again the same day. Household
records show Hov (P) AI:8 (1862-1873) Image 246 / page 241 (AID: v43863.b246.s241, NAD:
--- Hov (P) AI:8 also covers Sem (Norra Säm) parish, and they are in the
Norra Säm section, both shown as moving to Skövde city 1868-10-22.
Mother and son are number 5 in the Sem (Norra Säm) 1868 moving-out list,
destination Sköfde (Skövde).

I next find Dorothea moved into Skovde Stads on 13 Mar 1869 without her son Ernst,
records show Skövde stadsförsamling (R) B:9 (1862-1890) Image 69 (AID: v25266.b69, NAD:
--- One can wonder where she had been between moving out 22 Oct 1868
from Norra Säm, and moving in 13 Mar 1869 in Skövde.
Of course, the dates are when she received and handed in her moving
certificate, so perhaps she traveled directly from Norra Säm to Skövde,
but perhaps not...
and her residing there Skövde stadsförsamling (R) AI:12 (1866-1880) Image 228 / page 223
(AID: v25249.b228.s223, NAD: SE/GLA/13489). There is no mention of where she was between
22 Oct 1868 until 13 Mar 1869
I have traced Dorothea for every move until she died in 1903, and her son has never again
been with her. Dorothea had two siblings, but both of them died before Ernst was born. I
have also traced Ernst’s father (Alfred Leander Gustafsson) and he never lived with him,
or any of his father’s many siblings, whom I have traced down.
--- I also don't see him in EMIBAS, or after 1868 in ArkivDigitals
