Re: Soderbergs from Sweden to Illinois

In Reply to: Soderbergs from Sweden to Illinois by Charles Gray of 41

This could be Anders Gustaf before he used the name Söderberg. Many Swedes left using their patronymic names and adopted a surname later. This man had the right patronymic to be the son of a Jonas (Jonasson was often shortened to Jonsson.) He was born in Östergötland län (county) and landskap (province) and left in 1875.

He was married when he left, however.

Information comes from the Emibas CD, made from registrations in the Swedish parish to go to a foreign country. It is about 75% complete.

Dräng = farmhand. Hustru = wife.

I think he may be this person on the Emihamn (port departure registrations) database of the CD "Emigranten Populär", which is only in Swedish. I don't see the wife, however, but she may have been accidentally left off during transcription.

Efternamn: JONSON

Note the spelling of "Oestergotland" should be Östergötland. The bio misspelled it.
