great-grandparents from Visby, Gotland

Classification: Query
Surnames: Hedenberg, Jonsson or some other spelling of it.
I am trying to make the jump from the US to Sweden through my great-grandparents Augusta Josefina Jonsson or Johnson, born in 1875, and Charles Herman Hedenberg born in 1874. I can find no record of Charles' arrival in the US,supposedly in 1896 but found an Ellis Island record for Augusta for 1893. How do I start finding birth records without knowing a parish? Charles worked as a "foreman riveter" on the Brooklyn Bridge, but I was told by my grandmother that he had been an engineer in Sweden. I've run out of options on Ancestry, Familysearch, and Italiangen. Without learning Swedish, does anyone have any suggestions for me? Thank you!
