Searching for relatives to my grandfather Emil N. Broman
from Gotland, Sweden and
Anna Lovisa Wikman b. 1/8 1877 (from Aland or Finland).

Emil emigrated to the U.S.( NYC) in 1900.
He returned in 1923 and died in 1949.
He married Anna L. Wikman in 1905 in NYC.
She had immigrated about 1895.
Anna died in 1910.
She had siblings in the U.S., among others a brother Henry Wikman.
If you have met these names in your research or in other connections,
I would be very grateful
for any information.

Hi Henrik,
For starters, I believe I found Anna in the 1910 census listed as a patient in Manhattan State Hospital. I've attached the image.

I checked for Emil but he wasn't [edited was to wasn't] indexed under his first name. What was his middle name that began with N?

I did a check for Wikman also and there were 24 but only 1 or 2 that were foreign born. I'll check some more later when I have more time.

I found Anna Lovisa Wikman on the passenger list on Emigrant Register, leaving 29 Aug 1896 on the SS Astraea for NY. I also found her on the Boston Passenger List arriving 12 Sep 1896, age 21, Finn, servant, destination NY. Says from Liljendahl, FI.
I found an Emil Broman leaving Hanko 26 May 1909 on the SS Titania and then on the SS Saxonia 1 Jun 1909 bound for Boston. On the Boston Pass. List is Emil Broman age 23, arriving with destination as Maynard Mass. Father listed as Klas Broman Yyteri, FI. This may not be the correct Emil, but it was the only one listed.That would make Anna abt 10 years older. I checked the 1900, 1910 and 1920 census and couldn't find an Emil Broman, except in Mass. and his wife wasn't Anna.This is probably the one who arrived in 1909. I also found a Henry Wikman, age 30 who left Hanko 18 Mar 1911 on SS Astraea and 25 Mar 1911 on the SS Mauratania bound for NY. Karen N

Sorry I didn't look at your post closer. I found Emil Broman on Ellis Island arriving 31 Aug 1900 on SS Campania out of Liverpool. Says he's 25 from Gothland, Sweden, single, laborer, going to Brooklyn, NY. The page displays somewhat on an angle so it's hard to match lines. He's on line 24. Can't make out who he's going to.
