I'm looking for information on my great-grandmother, Ida Ek. She immigrated to the United States from Sweden in the early part of this century. One of the family stories is that her name was the shortest on record when she came through Ellis Island. Does anyone have any information on Ida? Thank you!

Dear Karen,
Do you know if any of your Ek families have
lived in Montana? I have an Ida Johnson Ek who
married Peter Ek. They lived in Cokato, MN.(1890's) Also
I am trying to find a Swanson cousin through my
Ek line? Please e-mail me. marvene@in-tch.com

I don't have any info on your family but had to laugh because the story my family was that my grandfather changed his name from Ed Eck to Ed Ek so that he would have the shortest name.

My grandmother's maiden name was Ida Ek. She was married to Bernard Nasvall. They came from Lulea Sweden in 1903 and eventially settled near Superior Wisconsin.
