    Hi There

    I am interested to hear if anyone has found any Scandinavian families in Newfoundland St Johns and/or Harbour Grace area 1780s onwards?

    I continue to look for my great uncle CARL EFRAIM JOELSSON who arrived in the area as a single, 20 year old man from Vrigstad, Sweden in November 1890 on the ship, Caspian. He died in a fishing accident in February or March of 1896. No known subsequent wife or children. He seems to have arrived with a small group of other passengers with whom he left Goteborg, Sweden, sailed to Hull England, traveled by train to Liverpool, and then sailed on the Caspian, a ship operated by the Allan Line. Other 3 Swedes in his party were from southern Sweden as well: Oskar Anderson,age 20, Charlotta Skog, 22 and Carl P Johanson 41. Thank you!
