from HISKI:
17.5.1850 19.5.1850 Slussnäs Bd.s. Erik Gust. Andersson Greta Lisa Johansdotter 31 Anna

this is your Anna at Larsmo so her född name in those days was likely Erik-Gustafsdotter as you give it. I am just putting this up to assist others who do better with the net than I.

The birth year matches on this one for Ida Karolina, but immigration date does not. She was a cook, going to a friend's, Aug. Paulson, in what appears to be "Land" Michigan. I have no idea where that is, and I live in Michigan. I'll keep looking.

Here is the 1930 Census for an Ida C. Jacobson. The "C" could be Carolina instead of Karolina. This must be the Ida that Rodney found the death record for on Familysearch. (Good job, Rodney!)

Hi again,
The previous Ida "C" in the 1930 Census was born in Minnesota and her parents in Denmark. Soooo, again we have the wrong Ida! :mad:

I found a SSDI record for a Carl Jacobson with a matching birthdate in San Bernardino, CA died June 1970.
Here's a possible 1930 census for him in Pasadena, CA. Emigration date matches as well as age, but says from Sweden. If his sisters were all born in Sweden and the family spoke Swedish, that's not uncommon to say you were Swedish. There are 2 more children on the next page. Bert V age 7, born CA. and Edith G age 4, also CA. I found birthdates for both of these on the CA Birth Index. Bert V 13 Apr 1922 and Edith 15 Dec 1925. Both say mmn Dotter. Maybe Emma was ?dotter. I can't figure out where Rodger was born.

I found the family on the CD Emibas when they emigrated to USA and they
moved out from Valknytt, Skön, Västernorrlands län (Medelpad), Sweden

Selma Katarina born 16/4 1883 in Skön, Västernorrlands län (Medelpad)
Emigrated 7/5 1900

Ida Karolina born 13/12 1885 in Skön, Västernorrlands län (Medelpad)
Emigrated 18/4 1902

Karl Emil born 5/3 1889 i Jeppo Finland
Emigrated 6/8 1903 together with the mother Anna Jakobsson, born 17/5 1850 in Jeppo, Finland

Source: Husförhörslängd, page 734
Emibas emigrationsakt: Skön Y 1900 007

The CD of Swedish Population 1900 has this information
Jakobsson, Anna arb.hustru
b 1850 in Jeppo Finland
Gift kvinna, mor i familjen (married woman, mother in the family
finsk und. ( Finnish citizen)
Skönsbergs municepaldistrikt
Skön (Västernorrlands län, Medelpad)
mannen på okänd ort ( her husband on unknown place)
Ida Karolina and Karl Emil is also recorded in the family on this CD
for year 1900. I tried to find them on the CD 1890 but no success

The scanned church records (www.genline.se) for Skön stops at 1893.
Best regards,
