Immigration/ship info from sweden

Surnames: Olson, Anderson
Hi,
I'm searching for the ship and/or place that my grandmother sailed on and what port she came into. She was from Sweden. Her name was Anna Olson, born June 19,1881. I've tried looking...but there are soooo many Anna Olsons. Her ss card information says she was born in Lorvy, Sweden . And I can't find any Lorvy either! Her parents were Olaf Olson and Nilla Anderson. I'm kind of at a dead end right now. Any help, any kind to point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. Oh and on a 1910 census it says her year of immigration was 1903.
Thanks in advance!

Thanks so much! That sounds it's the right one. Was there a ship listed by any chance? Or what city she was going to? Thanks so much again!

Ok. If you have access to the databases
you could try and browse to the record instead:

New York Passengerlists, 1820 - 1957
Year: 1904
Month: May
Day: 15
Ship: United States
Image: 25

On line 10. This Anna is going to her brother Oscar Olson in Michigan. Don't know if that is the right Anna?

As far as I know, she didn't have sibling here in the u.s....but not positive. I know she was in Boston after she arrived, don't know when. But I know she had my uncle in Boston ...not sure of the year. Don't believe she left the east coast at all.
But thanks anyway!
