Emil Andersson, born 1870-11-15 in Svedala, Malmöhus, emigrated from Sweden in 1886, and went to St. Paul, Minnesota, where he became a musician and music teacher. In 1894 he became a U.S. citizen [as Anderson]. He returned to Sweden for 5 years, from 1894 to 1899, to study music professionally.

Does he appear in Rotemannen 3 index as resident in Stockholm during these years?

Hi,

I searched by birth date alone (image atttached) and then Emil Anderson / Andersson without birth date and nothing came up.

Perhaps he studied at Lund or Uppsala Universities?

I searched the "Sweden, Household Examination Books, 1880-1930" database on Familysearch.org and found Emil living with his parents up to 1886, but nothing in the 1894 to 1899 period, although you might check the updated database on ArkivDigital or MyHeritage. Is it family lore that he went back to Sweden, or is there some documentation?

Wade and Bo - thank you for the replies.

Emil Anderson's return to Sweden is documented in Vol. 3 of A History of The Swedish-Americans of Minnesota, compiled and edited by A. E. Strand (Chicago, 1910), which contains a biographical sketch about him (pp. 861-2):

"Professor Anderson returned to Sweden in 1893 [sic], and studied music five years at the Royal Conservatory in Stockholm, being under the instruction of eminent teachers, such as Prof. Johan Lindberg, violin specialist, Professor Bergen in theory of music, and the piano specialist, Professor Carl Anderson. After his graduation he spent some time with various orchestras, and in 1899 returned to St. Paul."

His return to Sweden is also documented in a court case in which he was a defendant, reported in the Saint Paul Globe, 17 and 18 Jan 1905.

Emil Anderson departed Sweden from Göteborg on 11 Jan 1899 on the "Juno". The ship list indicates only that his residence was in America.

Some years ago I wrote to the Music and Theatre of Sweden (holding the archives of the Royal Conservatory) for information on Emil Anderson, and was informed:

"There are no signs of Emil Anderson in the printed lists of pupils for the period 1893-1899.

"The names of EA’s teachers do not fit: No teacher is named Anderson, nor Bergen. (One is named A Andersen and teaching violoncello and bass, and one is named A Bergenson teaching “harmonilära” which may be interpreted as music theory.) However, it is correct that J. Lindberg was a teacher of violin plus ensemble- and orchestra playing."

Wade and Bo,

As there appear to be various editions of the Rotenmannen index, could I ask you please to confirm which edition that you are searching?

The online version (Rotemansarkivet 1878-1926) has 4.3 million entries.

The 2015 edition (Rotemannen 2) on CD/DVD has 5.7 million entries.

The 2017 edition (Rotemannen 3) on USB-stick has 6.3 million entries.
