Hi Henrik,
I skimmed through Ellis Island for Johan Strandvall, or Johan Soderlund, or Strand, or Andersson. Didn't find anyone from Pörtom. Checked the Order of Runeberg obits, KG Olin's books on the Rocky Mountains and California. Checked Social Security and found nothing. Have you checked the Migration Institute's Passenger lists and Passport lists? Is that where you found the rough dates?
Sorry,
Syrene

These are from Genealogy.com. Unfortunately, I don't have a subscription to the Family Trees section. I'll post anyway as maybe someone has access and can look them up for you. I didn't find a John Soderlund who was the correct age or from Finland in the 1920 census index. Of course on Genealogy.com, not all of the states are indexed for 1920. There were quite a few born in Sweden, but none the correct age.

I have done amiss, the right birth name is Söderlund and therfor the name Soderlund or Strandvall is wth I think he used in Amerika. He left Finland to Norwegen and then to Amerika.
He has not any passport from Finland. We have information that he vas in USA or Canada and died in ab 1945.

Hi,
I seem to remember some Norwegian departure lists on a CD we used in the Emigrantinstitut in Växjö Sweden a few years back. I wonder if it was on the same database as the Gothenberg lists. Does anyone have a copy?

Dear Henrik,
Here are some possibilities from the Order of Runeberg database of obituaries which appeared in the Leading Star newspaper. The dates in my copy of the database are off, and I included Soderman just in case Johannes changed his name a little bit.
Good luck!

Hi Henrik,
things are getting very hectic from now until Mar 26. Please don't be surprised if it takes a month or so. But I'll try to check the Leading Star obits and see if I can copy the obit for you. what is your postal mailing address?
mvh

There are 3 Sodermans at Ellis Island who appear with an interesting town name so check the image attached.

Henrik, 6/22/45 is the Americanized version of June 22, 1945. If I recall, it was the death date of John Soderman.

Johannes Soderman arrived aboard Bergensfjord at NY from Bergen on Sep 9, 1916. He is 31 years of age here.
I believe this is Johannes Soderman but Henrik will want to look at the attached image which is a cut and paste of the line of the original manifest. The bottom part of the image shows Johannes information somewhat at the top with the word Aberdeen at the left.
It shows him going to see his brother Mats Soderman whose mailing address is Box 11, Aberdeen WA. Johannes has a wife back in Finland named Edla.

Johannes arrives Oct 1, 1911 on board St. Louis out of Southhampton, England.

This fits also so perhaps both are one and the same person? Henrik shall decide:)

This has been a lot of fun so I hope Henrik does not make a charge for this:)
