I am looking for any info that can be found. Any help is greatly appreciated. I know it isn't much and i am sure the name is very very common. I just don't have much info for him. I have a record that has an Anders Anderson who came from Sweden through Liverpool, England on a ship called the Abbotsford with arrival to Philadelphia of 26 May 1873. So the year matches but i just don't have much information on if this is indeed the Andrew Anderson i am searching for. I will try to edit this post with some more information if i find it.

Name: Andrew Anderson
Birth: 14 Jan 1849
Place: Holland, Sweden

Four different census' from United States say he Immigrated to the US in the year 1873.

Hi,

a quick serach in Emibas (https://emiweb.se/en/home/) shows only one Anders Andersson, born 1849 that emigrated in 1873[1, 2] from Halland -- the last a guess, but there is no parish, nor higher administrative divisions, called Holland or Hålland (which would sound like Holland to an american).

Anders Jakob was born on Nov 21[3], though, not Jan 14th. On the positive side, his emigration record is dated April 8th, which seems about right for him to get on a boat in Liverpool early May ...

Both his parents were alive when he left, so he may be mentioned in their estates (but they may take some book-scanning to find, doesn't seem to be indexed :(). He also had a bunch of siblings, maybe some of them emigrated before?

mvh /staffan

Thank you. I am not certain that is him mainly due to the birth being so far off. I will double-check my records and see how many refer to his birthday in January. I am pretty certain he Immigrated in 1873 due to the fact that multiple documents quote that year. I am still trying to find some more hard facts to help narrow down a search in in Swedish records.
