Henrik,
Could this be Alma's arrival to Boston in 1905. Arrival 15 June 1905 to Boston
"Saxonia" to uncle Isak Isakson in Eveleth, MN. Says she's from Alnö, Sverige.
She's on line 8.

I found the entire family in the Sveriges Befolkning 1900 in Alnö, Västernorrlands län, Medelpad, but I couldn't find them in the Household Rolls.
You may already have this info. There are 5 children for Karl and Maria Beata.
Other than Alma's arrival in 1905, I haven't found her. Do you have any idea what the Johnson husband's name was? Any other clues? There are so many Alma Johnson. I looked for her in MN also since she was going to Eveleth.

Don't know if you're interested in info about Isak Isaksson or not. Found him and his family in 1905-1910 and 1930 in MN. First in Eveleth,St Louis, MN and then in Colville Township, Cook, MN. Isaac and his wife Alma (Elma) had 3 children, Alma or Alina (hard to read, also found spelled with E's), Esther and Hilmer or Elmer, depending on year. In 1910, Isaac was 42, Alma was 29, Alina or Alma was 7, Esther 5 and Elmer 4. In 1930, Esther and Elmer were still at home. I thought maybe I'd find Alma Marie by searching for Isak, but no luck.

Henrik,
As I emailed you, I found that the E Lenore Youngberg at that address was born 1930, so she wouldn't be the right one. Just a case of two Elsa L Johnson in Chicago.

She worked as a doctor of medicine in Chicago. She had summer home in Minnesota.
She worked as a doctor among children in Chicago's poor neighborhoods. She was something of a "Maria Teresa" type.
She has lived unmarried.

I received this information and believe that this may be the one I want.

On Sunday, November 9, Dr. Elsa Johnson was recognized by the congregation as a “Trinity
Treasure” at a coffee hour following the morning worship service.
A person of Swedish heritage, born in Minnesota and raised in the Covenant Church, her
thirst for education brought her to Chicago’s Hyde Park area. After securing a doctor’s degree
from the school of osteopathic medicine, she decided to specialize in psychiatry. She became a
clinical psychologist and has ministered to many in Chicagoland.
She worshipped at the Grand Crossing Covenant Church, often taking the “streetcar” to
get there and participated in women’s groups at the church and her neighborhood which
brought her great joy. Her favorite – The American Daughters of Sweden – kept her connected
to her Swedish roots. Today she is still active in the Southside Swedish Christian Fellowship (SKF).
When Grand Crossing closed its doors, Dr. Elsa re-established herself at Trinity Covenant
Church. The Trinity choir has been a home for this active lady for many years. She is a faithful
Sunday School attendee where the class always enjoys her various views on many topics.
In Hyde Park, Dr. Elsa has often opened her home to college students. Her thirst for
knowledge has kept her taking many university courses over the years.
Summertime is a time of respite for Dr. Elsa. She spends her summers in Minnesota on her
family farm just enjoying friends and family.
She can best be described as an optimist, who is always filled with laughter. She has been a
faithful friend to many. At 87, she continues to grow in knowledge, not only in God’s word, but
the world around her. She is a treasure, to be sure!

Henrik,

Elsa has been located. She lives in a nursing home in Eveleth, Minnesota. I have a cousin who lives in northern Minn. and I asked if he could find her. He located Elsa's brother Hubert's widow Lois who lives in Eveleth. My cousin Adrian said that Lois' maiden name was Tamte and her brother was Rev. Ken Tamte. Ken Tamte's wife Mary Beth was Adrian's father's second cousin. I'll send you the address in a private message.
