Hi Henrik,

Would this be your Selma Erickson I found on the Heritage Quest cd Scandinavians in the 1910 US Federal Census?

ERICKSON Selma 20 F Fin Iron, Iron River Twp 652 1 61 B MI

There was one other Selma Erickson aged 23 in CA and I was unable to find any Selma B's close to 19 years of age.

It can bee the right Selma, so if someone have information after the census 1910 it can help to finde out if it is the right Selma.
