Hi Elof,

Ellis Island:
First Name: Kristian
Last Name: Sund
Ethnicity: Finland, Finnish
Last Place of Residence: Solf, Finland
Date of Arrival: March 12, 1910
Age at Arrival: 22y Gender: M Marital Status: S
Ship of Travel: Campania
Port of Departure: Liverpool
Manifest Line Number: 0007

Looking at this record, he traveled with 2 others from the same farm or village in Solf - August & Alfred Hellinan.

Kristian is 22, male, single, Laborer, able to read & write, Nationality is Finland, Race/People is Finnish, last residence Solf, Finland, relative is Isak Sund from Mincsius? or Minsma or Muusma? (hard to read), Solf. He is traveling in Steerage, he paid for the ticket, he has $25, he was in the US before, from 1906-1908 in Hoquiam, Washington. He is going to his brother Gurt? Sund, Box 1408, Hoquiam, Washington. He is not a polygamist nor an anarchist. He is in good mental & physical condition, not deformed or crippled. He is 5'8", light complexion, blond hair, blue eyes, has a scar on the left hand and was born in Solf, Finland. The ship left Liverpool 5.3.1910, arrived NY 12.3.1910

1910 census, 23.4.1910, Chris Sund, age 22, boarder in Hoquiam, Chehalis County, Washington

1920 census, Chris Sund, age 30, working in the Mox Chuck Logging Camp, Junction Precinct, Grays Harbor, Washington. He is listed as a "partner" (1 of 3 partners) living in the house of Alfred Gustafson. He is single, year of immigration 1906, naturalized alien in 1912. He is Swedish Finn as was his father and mother. His occupation looks to me like "highlimber" & I noted that he is the only one with this particular trade in this camp.

Have a great day,
Lori Pawlik :)
