View Full Version : Axel Andersson Kronqvist, trip to USA

12-11-07, 20:52

I have been in contact with great grandchildren of Axel Andersson Kronqvist, b. 1871 in Dalabäck. He married Maria Sofia Nilsdotter Rönnqvist from Pedersöre, Forsby in 1893. The family lived in Nykarleby and Axel lived some years in USA to earn money. He returned later back to Finland.

He was probably in USA sometimes between 1907 and 1915 and now I would like to know where and when he was there. Any passenger list with his name?
