Note: s grusarbetare #561. NOT NORR VRAM PARISH! The "S" looked like an "N".
Fritz had an Uncle Fred and Aunt Emma (we have a photo), perhaps from Montana (where the print was made), but Mom says they lived in Couer d'lane Idaho. I did find an Emma with a Johanna (I'm trying all avenues), but the info didn't match what we do know. Could this be the Aunt we know of from Helsingborg, where Fritz had his picture taken (we have it) before he left Sweden?

On July 28, 2001, I registered myself with, and got onto, the Ellis island website and found Fritz's registry there. He is listed as Fritz Leonard Lindberg. They assumed "L." meant Leonard. They were wrong. This website (done along with LDS Church) also has copied the ship's manifests. I will order his soon.
