View Full Version : Frank Anderson/Amundsen/ Carolina

13-12-05, 20:12
I have been trying to find some information on this couple to trace them back to Finland. I looked at the Minnesota naturalization records and they only had his signature. If that was even him.

My aunt told me that she had heard that his last name may have actually been Amundsen.

They lived in Carlton Co. Minnesota.

Any suggestions on where to look next?

Thank you,

Amundsen sounds very Norwegian?

I remember my father talked about Raold Amundsen, the Norwegian explorer of the Antarctic in the early 1900s.

Hi Amy,
Welcome to the Finlander Forum. You haven't mentioned any dates in your enquiry which makes it difficult for people to help with particularly popular names like Anderson.
Have you obtained death certificates or looked up the Minnesota
Death Index online sometimes mothers maiden name is listed
or a date of birth. http://people.mnhs.org/dci/

Marriage certificates usually contain the most accurate information because they are completed by the parties involved.

Have you checked genealogy sites for Carlton County, MN? Many have indexes which are searchable on-line.

Could this be your Frank? The index only lists heads of household so access to the actual image is necessary to establish whether it is.
