I have a request for help as follows.. can anyone find something about Nils in the US?

Nils Magnus Nilsson, b 19/8 1878 in Attmars församling Sweden emigrated to US 8/7 1903 from Sweden/Attmar.

How can I find info about Nils' family in the US?
We don't have any real dokuments of his family, just a photo with some text.

Thanks for all that good information.. I had told Mikael that Magnus probably took the name Nelson in the US.. I won't have to translate anything for him.. he speaks Swedish. I may have to explain what a 'roomer' is, but he will probably know about the Forslund name, etc.
