Hi again, Autumn,

This is the arrival of your Carl Swan in 1909. His birthdate this time is listed as Urshult, also in Kronoberg county. This is the same man as listed in my last post since his father is the same and he was going to Omaha, Nebraska. You will need to check the parish records to find out which birthplace is correct.

Be sure to study these manifest pages. They are quite informative at this time period. :-)

Edith came in 1910 from a different part of Sweden. It is strange that two birthplaces were listed for her. Umeå and Trehörna were both listed. She apparently had a brown spot (a mole???) on her arm. (I love the detail on these manifests.) She was going to Minden, Nebraska. Edit is the Swedish spelling of Edith and the transcriber misspelled her name as Edih.

This is the url I used for the Ellis Island site.
