Hi!

I am looking for what happened to my relative Karl Johan Gustavsson, born 2/14/1875 in Melby, Björkvik's parish, Södermanland, Sweden. He moved from Väringe, Lid's parish, Södermanland, Sweden 1898 to North America. He had also spent a few years in the small city of Nyköping in Sweden before he left. He was unmarried and had no children.

I have no idea where in America he went, just wanting to know whether someone knows something. He could have anglicized his name, Karl is Swedish for "Charles" and Johan is Swedish for "John".

I am sorry, I wrote an incorrect date of birth. He was born 4/12/1875, not 2/14/1875.

Aparently, he emigrated to Alberta, Canada. In the estate inventory of his mother (1916), his address is noted as Alberta, Canada, and the same address is given in his father's estate inventory, 1928.

Does anyone know how I look for family in Canada?
