Help With Death Records

Help With Death Records

Surnames: Anders Magnus Andersson
I am hoping someone can help me find a relative named Anders Magnus Andersson, born 27 September 1861 in Gunnarsnäs, Älvsborgs, Sweden.

I found a potential immigration record for him on 6 April 1883 to New York but all the records I reviewed in NYC are not him.

I am thinking he would have come to MN because his brother Erik Gustaf Andersson immigrated to MN in 1892. Erik was born 28 October 1864 in Gunnarsnäs, Älvsborgs, Sweden and died 10 Mar 1906 in Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota, USA.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Taryn,

I actually have the first two records and I know the first one is him for sure. I will check out the 2nd one again and the 3rd is the wrong parents.

Thanks for taking the time to look this up. You are so kind.
