If at all possible might I get a lookup from EmiSjö for a Carl August Pettersson; his place of origin is given as Göteborg, Västra Götaland Län, Sverige, and his record seems to mention Sydafrika.
I'm trying to determine if this Carl August is the same man as my third great grandfather, Charles August Petterson, fisherman, who is believed to have immigrated from Sweden to South Africa sometime c.1860s. Unfortunately, I don't know when or where he might have been born; the earliest record I have for him is his marriage banns from 23 April 1871 in Kalk Bay, South Africa.
It's possible his sister or mother was named Louisa Gertrude Petterson; he might also have had a sister named Ellen Susannah Petterson.
Thank you for your time,
