I am looking for the date that my great grandfather emigrated to America from Sweden. I'm not sure what part of Sweden he was born in, but his name is AXEL OLSSON (changed when he came to America) originally would have been OLOFSSON - his date of birth is April 16, 1869 and his parents are OLOF BENGTSSON (B:7/19/1837 D:4/22/1923) and KARNA ANDERSDOTTER. Olof and Karna married on 12/30/1864 and they had 6 children:  Matilda 2/22/1865-1946, Elof 1/10/1867, Axel 4/16/1869, Oskar 5/12/1871, Alfhilda 6/12/1873-6/17/1964, and Hilda 9/30/1875. (The only thing I know about location is that at some point, OLOF lived in Hissmossa, if that helps)  I also would like any information on AXEL's wife CAROLINE (I think her last name was Nilsson) she was born 1/10/1875 and was from Onslunda Skane. They both left Sweden for America (at different times) and ended up in Indiana, where they both died. Its possible Axel's year of immigration was 1887, but I'm not positive. Caroline's may have been 1892? Any information on AXEL, CAROLINE and also KARNA (ANDERSDOTTER) would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you Ivar.  Does EMIBAS say anything about Axel's destination - I assume it was New York, but not sure.  Or if he was traveling with anyone?  I'm not quite sure how he ended up in Indiana or how he and Carolina met after she arrived in America.  It seems Axel had other family that emigrated to America around 1883 - his uncle Nils Bengtsson (B:7/11/1829) and Nil's son Elof, along with Nils brother in law Per Palsson and Per's wife and daughter - they all went to Swedish settlements around Minnesota. So I'm not sure if Axel first went to Minnesota and then to Indiana etc.. or where he may have met Carolina at.
