Hello!

I have a notation that Lars Viktor Kronqvist, b. 12 Feb 1887 emigrated to America 6 Apr 1907. Destination unknown. His death date is 26 Oct 1946 without notation of place.

He was from Dalabäck, Pedersöre and son of Anders Gustaf Johansson Kronqvist.

Could anyone give further information about destination, possible family, a.s.o.

I have never asked the parish office in Pedersöre if they have the certificates telling when and where a person died. Unless they had this the parish wasn't allowed to enter the death date with ink into the records. You could try that way too.

I've tried twice so far to load the actual census, but I'm getting an error message having to do with Finlander Forum's site. I'll try again later to send you the census.

Thanks Denise!

Your first and your third message were kind of interesting.

The second one from Colorado looks a little bit strange to match this person.

I have a picture of him, but this will surely not help us at this moment.

Hi,
You can order this record from Minnesota on Lars. I've sent the explanation below for you.

Minnesota Naturalization Records Index, 1854-1957
Name: Lars Victor Kronquist
County: Lake
Reel: 2
Code: 25
Volume: 2
Page: 13



Source Information:
Peterzen, Conrad, ed.. Minnesota Naturalization Records Index, 1854-1957












Several years ago, the Iron Range Research Center purchased the entire set of microfilmed Minnesota County Naturalization Records (61 counties) from the Minnesota Historical Society. Because the record set was one of the most widely used records in the Iron Range Recearch Center, it quickly became apparent that the indexes to the records were incomplete and often inaccurate. Conrad Peterzen, a Research Center volunteer, resolved to make a new comprehensive index to the entire set. His index recorded the name of each person requesting citizenship and included the following information: Spouses name, county of residence, microfilm reel reference, print volume, and page number. The index also includes records of people who were denied citizenship and those who never completed the process. The present version of the index contains all of the 61 counties and roughly over 865,000 records.
The fact that spouses are listed in the index can be especially important because before 1922, women became citizens through their husbands and did not have their own papers. This index provides the necessary information for researchers to access the original papers in the microfilm collection. The microfilmed papers contain most of the relevant genealogical information, i.e., dates and places of birth and marriage.

Note: While most of the locations refer to counties, the following names are cities in St. Louis County: Ely, Duluth, Hibbing, and Virginia.

Hi,
As you can see the one with the birthdate matching your Lars Viktor Kronquist states he was born in Sweden, and resides in Minnesota.

Wonderful Denise!

The one living in Two Harbors sounds very interesting although he was notated as born in Sweden. Last summer there were relatives from Finland in Two Harbors and people there remembered some other Kronqvist who had lived in Two Harbors! Unfortunately they did not know their names, but it seems like a hit.

We all know that there are many examples of people from Finland who have called themselves "Swedes" in USA. So I am not so worried about this.

I must process all this information together with some friends to see what information to exclude.

It's a pity that the 1930 census did not show the next side. Possible more familymembers could be found there.
