1. Are there any websites or contacts I can use for research

Customer Question

1. Are there any websites or contacts I can use for research regarding my Swedish ancestors?
2. Can the Just Answer genealogy experts find anything regarding my grandfather's past? Either from his earlier days in Sweden or time in the U.S./?

My grandfather, (Karl Enockson 1901-1968), came to the U.S. in 1923 at age 22 and I know he immigrated through Ellis Island on the ship Stockholm (I have all these records) along with his naturalization records in 1939. Karl lived at "Garane Socka" (also known with spelling "Jarane") until 1916-1917 when his family moved to "Roserial" at Tveta, Varmland.

I know nothing about his life prior to his immigration to the U.S. I know who his parents and siblings were but nothing beyond this;
Father: Enock Johannesson or Johnson 1865-1920
Mother: Augusta Emilia Oij or Oig 1865-1919
Siblings; Maria, Helga, Johannes, Daniel, Stina, Hedvig and Axel

Spanish Influenza hit Sweden hard and between 1918-1920 and Karl's parents, Emilia and Enock, and all the younger sisters and brothers died, (Axel-age 8, Hedvig-age 13 and Daniel - age 17). The cows hadn't enough to eat and they also died during this bad time in the family. --
1. NOTE: Mom and Dad died within 5/months of each other
2. NOTE: Five family members (Mom/Dad/3-kids) all died within 14/months of each other
3. NOTE: Karl left for America 3/years (1923) after this family tragedy and never returned

Thank you. I think the emails I have been getting were most likely just the app's automated responses and confused me. I have no further information to share from my side. Sorry for the confusion.

Hello,

 

I apologize for the confusion and the delay in your receipt of your answer.

Sometimes the website sends automatic emails requesting ratings and payment prior to an answer having been given. Also, when the moderator contacted me, for some unknown reason, I was unable to communicate with you. Again I apologize.

 

I have found a few records and I have given you several websites to continue your research. If you would like to hire a professional to do on-site research, I suggest you try www.APGEN.org.
