Re: Gustave Erickson Lived in Ct. Born in Sweden
I was hoping you had a full birthdate and perhaps some idea of where he came from in Sweden. The 1900 U.S. Federal Census provides a month and year of birth. Death certificates usually provide a date of birth.
I looked on one of my Swedish emigration databases. There are 1,663 hits for a Gustaf Er* and that database (Emibas) is only about 75% complete. (Children in Swedish records usually aren't listed with last names, so if he left Sweden as a child, even more needs to be known.)
When did he leave Sweden? Look for the immigration column in the 1900, 1910, 1920, and 1930 U.S. Federal Census.
Was Alice also born in Sweden? Do you know when she was born? Do you have her maiden name? Do you know when she left Sweden?
