Charley J. Swanson & Amanda Swanson!!!

Classification: Immigration
Surnames: Swanson
Hello,
I am trying to find a naturalization record or passenger list for these people. I know Charley j. Swanson was born September 1860 in Sweden. Amanda was born November 1860 in Sweden. They came over to the U.S. in 1881. They also had a kid with them named Lottie Swanson. In the 1900 census, they are in Galesburg Ward 4, Knox, Illinois. If you guys could help me find any immigration records on them, that would be great!
Thanks,
Holt Ussery

Hi!
I don´t know about their naturalization, but according to the Swedish CD Emibas, there is a family I think is the one you are asking for.
Karl Johan Valfrid Svensson born on the 2nd of Sept 1859 in the parish Kristdala,Kalmar county. His wife Amanda Fredrika born Hjerpe in the same parish on the 11th of Nov 1860. They had one daughter Maria Charlotta born on the 6th of June 1881 also in Kristdala.
This family left Kristdala on 30th of April 1882,

I couldn't find Nils Oskar
-----------------------------------------------
So what you can do now in order to find living relatives in Sweden is to use the data under "Swedish death index 1901-2009" and send that to either the county archives if they passed away before 1971 or the Swedish tax authorities if they passed away after 1971

You'll need to contact the county archives in Vadstena for
John Fredrik and Judit Kristina: http://tinyurl.com/3tzv8zw
and the Stockholm city archives for Signe Charlotta: http://tinyurl.com/3cj7ocu

Give them the details that I gave you above and let them know that you are interested in finding data for their children, names, when and where they were born.

The same goes for those who died after 1971. contact the Swedish tax authorities here http://tinyurl.com/3s93h3f
Email address for Kalmars län is listed under "Skattekontoret Kalmar"

What you can do when you get that data is to use this site (make sure that the tab called "sök person" is activated) to find where they are now http://tinyurl.com/3r58xzh
The site holds records of most people that pays tax in Sweden today

Actually, try adding the following
Last name: Konnberg
City: Nybro
and it will give you 3 results, who knows, they may be related
