I found a John and Ellen J. Swanson living in NJ in the US 1930 Census. They
were both born in Sweden. They had 8 children by 1930, living on Morris Ave
in Summit City, Union Co., NJ. The oldest child was born about 1907 in NJ.
John and Ellen J list their first marriage being 1904 or 1905 though. Could
this be your Swanson?
You can find out how to order vital records for each state at
. It will tell you where to cal or write for the state records for the
period you need as well as the costs. I have written to NJ, the Dept. of
Health Services in Trenton, NJ, for my NJ relatives. It was relatively
inexpensive but it did take some time to receive a response (sometimes a few weeks,
If you need more info that was on the census, let me know.
In a message dated 6/30/2003 3:11:16 PM Eastern Standard Time,
Does anyone have access to old marriage records? I am looking for
marriage certificate of Ellen Josephine Strid and John Swanson. They married in
New Jersey or Connecticut I THINK sometime around 1906.
Thanks for helping!!
