Leaving Göteborg in 1888

This list of emigrants is of individuals leaving via Göteborg, Sweden, in 1888. Whose name is on line 63?


  1. Sven Vikaor Johanson

  2. I flunked that one! I was in such hurry I didn't even type what I meant...Sylvia, that is what I meant to write! But, if that isn't it, I am lost...

  3. It's definitely Sven Viktor Johanson. The correct spelling would have been Sven Viktor Johansson, though. The meaning of Johansson is Johan's son, thus a double s. Swedes in Sweden use a double s. Swedes in America tend to drop an s. Of course it must be transcribed as it is on the record.
