Hi Autumn,

From the Emihamn database of CD Emigranten (the Emigrant CD):

First name: CH EDITH
Last name: KRAFT
Age: 17 Gender: K (kvinna = woman)
Parish: TREHÖRNA (where she was living when she emigrated) County: E (Östergötland)
Port: GÖTEBORG
Date: 1910 03 09 (date of registering with the police to leave Sweden)
Destination: MINDEN NEBR
Fellows: NEJ (Nej = no. She traveled alone on her ticket.)
Source: 91:253:11394

Here is (probably) the sister she was joining.

First name: HULDA
Last name: KRAFT
Age: 15 Gender: K
Parish: TREHÖRNA County: E
Port: GÖTEBORG
Date: 1902 09 10
Destination: CHICAGO
Fellows: JA (Ja = yes. She traveled with someone else.)

Hulda traveled with someone who had already been to the U.S. This may be another sister.

First name: IDA
Last name: SANDBERG
Age: 27 Gender: K
Parish: AMERIKA County:
Port: GÖTEBORG
Date: 1902 09 10
Destination: CHICAGO

One question you might wish to ask the Swedes on the Sweden board is why Trehörna was listed as being in Jönköping county in 1890 and in Östergötland county in 1900. My "guess" is that the county borders changed but they would perhaps be able to check some references to find out for sure. :-)

Here is a Carl Kraft going to Minden from Trehörna.

First name: CARL A
Last name: KRAFT
Age: 17 Gender: M
Parish: TREHÖRNA County: E
Port: GÖTEBORG
Date: 1890 09 05
Destination: MINDEN
Fellows: NEJ

I didn't find that other relative of yours on this cd, so perhaps he traveled through a Danish, Norwegian, or German port.

Judy
