My grandpa, Conrad Carlsen, was born 25. december 1911. He will be 92 years old this Christmas, so it is about time he finds out where his father went, and if he has any family in America.
His father, Carl Carlson, was 26 years old when he emigrated from Norway. He took the ship "S/S United States" from Kristiania (Oslo) Friday the 25th of August 1911, and arrived in New York on the 5th September 1911. He was originally from Sweden, but was living in Norway working as a railway worker.
It was meant that my greatgrandma should go after him when grandpa was born, but she died a short time after he was born.
We think greatgrandpa came from Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. But do not know his date of birth. The year he was born must have been 1884 or 1885.
Since grandpa's name is Conrad it CAN be that Carl Carlson's middlename was Conrad.
I found a Carl Conrad Carlson in "the 1920 Census" who was 35 years old in 1920, with residence at that time: Center, Saunders County, Nebraska. Would like more info about him. Like his exact date of birth.
Have also found a Carl Conrad Carlson, born 24th of May 1885 (Sweden), died Nov. 1966, last residence; Leadville, Colorado.
- Is there anybody out there who can help ???!!
