I haven't seen an answer to your question. I don't know the answer, but I can
tell you how I found my ancestors who immigrated in 1880. I found them years ago at the
Family History Library in Salt Lake City using microfilm.
The HFL gave the date and that they were going to Norra Amerika. I then found them in an
Index of Immigration from Goteburg which gave the ship and their destination, Red Wing,
and a number. In Göteborgs poliskammare they were listed by this number. They left Sweden
on a feeder ship which took them to Hull, England. (These records are now available online
at Arkivdigital, ancestry.com
, etc.) I then went through microfilm of ships arriving at
New York during the appropriate time period to find them because they arrived before Ellis
Island and I was looking before there were many online sources. Remember that spelling
isn't always what you expect. My Alfred and Augusta were listed on the passenger list
as Alf and August
My other Swedish ancestor, who immigrated in 1869, left from Norway and arrived at Quebec.
Since your man left in 1903, you might find him in the Ellis Island database. The
naturalization record also might give the ship's name and date of arrival. Later
records asked more questions.
If you haven't already looked there, I would think the Emihamn would be a good place
to look for his departure from Sweden. Just expect that he likely took a smaller ship to
England and sailed to America from there.
I hope this helps a little.

In the Säby AIIa-7-1901-1911-bild-313-sid-152 for Noak Melker
Andersson, his son Karl Johan Andersson is shown to emigrate to N.
America 4 Nov 1903 from Säby, Rockebro, Johanneberg.My question is,
would he have traveled to Gothenburg from here to board a ship and if
so, would the Emihamn records give me a ship name and destination or
any other information? I know in the
1910 Minnesota census he is a single man boarding with another
family.Any help would be greatly appreciated.Glen Williams
