I think this person may be your Andrew Anderson. Andrew is not a Swedish name but it usually comes from Anders or Andreas.

Information comes from the Emibas CD. Emibas was made from registrations in the Swedish parish to go to a foreign country. It doesn't translate occupations and titles. It is about 75% complete.

Andersson, Andreas
Arbetare (unmarried man)

b. 10/8/1846 in Torpa, Älvsborgs län (Västergötland)

Emigrated 1880
from Riddarebo, Torpa, Älvsborgs län (Västergötland)
to Amerika

Source: Household Examination Roll, p. 193

Emibas migration file ID: Torpa P 1880 008

If you mention his birthplace in the future, include the name of his parish, since records were kept in the parish. The Rosenberg CD, made from a book written about Swedish place names in the 1880s, lists a by (village) called Riddarebol (probably the same location) in Torpa parish. Spellings have changed since the 1880s.

"Riddarebol i Elfsborgs län, Vedens hd. By i Torpa sn, vid den lilla Bosjön."

Andreas seems to be this person on the Emihamn database of CD Emigranten. Emihamn was made from registrations with the Swedish port police before leaving Sweden.

He certainly wasn't the only person from Torpa traveling to Chicago at that time.

I looked at the fee-based Genline site to find the birth of this man to see if his father was Anders Olofsson. Genline has scans of the same Swedish parish records you can see on microfilm ordered from any Family History Center. These are copies of the actual records and not just transcribed records.

If you join Genline, this is the page to find the record of the birth of Andreas Andersson.


1048.21.55100

Andreas was born in Torpa parish, Älvsborg län (county) on 8 October 1846 and baptised on 11 October. His parents were living in Riddarebo in that parish at the time of his birth.

His parents were: Hem. (farm owner) Anders Olofsson in Riddarebo and Anna Stina Andersdotter. A 41 is listed, which I think is probably the mother's age.

Baptism witnesses were: Johannes Andersson in Ryssnäs? (another village in Torpa parish), wife ???? Olofsdotter in Riddarebo, Dräng (farmhand) Anders Peter Svensson in Funningen?? (another village in Torpa parish), Pigan (the maid) Britta Andersdotter in Ryssnäs?

You need to be posting on the Sweden boards and lists if you want to do more research on these people in Sweden.
