I found this notation at the bottom of an emigration record from Sweden in 1887. Can anyone tell me what it means? The person was 45 years old at the time. Closest I could come, picking the words apart individually was old+deprived or missing. Could it mean indigent, poor?

"Ålder saknas" means "No information of age" or "Age missing".

Thanks. I would have never come up with that meaning. Karen
