I know you were trying to be helpful, but she stated already that her ancestor was born in 1837...

Have you found any immigration record? The boats going to England (first leg of the journey to the US) would often state the person's birth or last residence and their destination. Sometimes the destination's information were more than "Boston" or "New York" (as in the port destinations).


Did she have a year old daughter with her named Carlina or Carolina or Caroline?

Where was the last place she lived prior to immigrating?

Who were her parents?

Maja Stinas parents were Carl Månsson and Stina Axelsdotter. The last place she lived was in Asby Östergötland, Sweden. I think the place was called Solvarp. Maja Stina gave birth to a boy Anders Johan, 1860, whom she left behind. I don´t know if she hade a daughter, in the Swedish records there is no daughter listed, maybe she was pregnant when she left.
Thank you so much for your help!

So far, this has been quite the challenge. If you also have ancetry.com (if your out of the State's than the world subscription...), than you can follow some of what I'm doing here. First off, many Scandanavian's of that era switched their surname's when in America, but not necesarily by their own perogative. So, Carlsdotter very well could have been Carlson here. Her given names may have remained the same. Maja Christina (Stina is not a common nick name in the US) Carlsdotter or Carlson or Karlson or Carlsen the most likely uses.

I've found a couple by either Carlsdotter or Carlson, but it's too early to know if she is one and the same as yours.

Thank you very very much for helping me out.
I have a subscription in Sweden, Ancestry.se, world de luxe. I know that Maja Stina, also Maria Christina in some records, gave birth to my grandmother´s father, Anders Johan. She was unmarried so it´s likely that she had an other child as well. I spoke to my aunt and she maybe think that could have been the case. I also know that my father´s uncle Emil Anders Andersson came to America in 1906, 16 years of age. He was unmarried and single all his life, that we know of. He lived in Iowa and worked as a "farmboy" after he fought in WW1. I know that he vistited his uncle Castenson. I also know that Maja Stina´s sister Mathilda Carlson/Nelson came to America 1885. Mathilda and her husband lived in Moline, Illinois.

Thank you so much again.
