I am looking for any information regarding my great-grandfather, Emil Johanson in Sweden. According to my US records, he was born in Södermanland on 3 Oct 1865 and he was a Barber. I don't know any information about his parents. According to his Naturalization paperwork, he immigrated to the US about 1889, but I have been unable to find any passenger lists thus far. I do know that he, his wife Anna Sophia, and his 3 children (Axel Emil, Carl Uno, & Clarie Estelle) must have taken a trip back "home" because they do show up on a passenger log departing from Christiania 24 Sep 1899 and arriving in NYC on 6 Oct 1899. This log listed them as being in Stockholm.

It is also said that Clarie Estelle might have been born in Stockholm, Sweden (which seems to match since I cannot find her birth certificate in Chicago's records) - her birth date is 2 Mar 1898.

This entire family lived in Chicago, IL area after coming to the US. Any information anyone can provide me with would be greatly appreciated!
