I've checked several places at Swenson without luck so these guys didn't attend church.
It's up to Jeanette and Kevin and other online wizards to find them.

I wasn't able to find much new under either name, Hermans or Gustafson. Per the Institute of Migration, Viktor did arrive at Boston on the SS Columbia. His passport says he was married with 4 children, left behind in Finland. Awfully young at 20 to have 4 children. Also says he's a farmer's son.

Hi June,
I posted a bit of info on this guy from Arne's request on the Finland Genealogy board - probably a couple of weeks ago. He obviously hasn't checked back. Perhaps it isn't who he was looking for after all.
Have a good evening,
Lori :)

Thanks to all for searching. I saw the query in the newspaper and thought I'd try to spread the word around.
