In 1868, 12 people from our group left Ljusnarsberg.

Caroline Ersdotter
The first person listed in the records is Caroline Ersdotter, part of an entire family (almost) that came from Ljusnarsberg to Pope County. The father, Erik Andersson died in Ljusnarsberg on 21 Sep 1867, a couple of months after his son, Erik, had left for America. In 1868, two more children left Ljusnarsberg for America, Caroline being the first to appear in the moving out register. Her moving out certificate was No. 31 issued on 18 Apr 1868. I have been unable to find a record of her passage. She married John Felt in 1869, who came from Ljusnarsberg in Mar 1869. I have not been able to find a record for this marriage, but his obituary states that they were married in Chicago before moving to Ishpeming, Michigan. They were living in Ishpeming when their daughter was born on 27 Dec 1869. The Bethany Lutheran Church records in Ishpeming show that they left for Minnesota on 3 Jun 1878.

Johan Jansson/John J. Berg
John J. Berg left his mother and brother in Sweden and went to America. His moving out certificate was No. 51 issued on 9 May 1868. He sailed on the S.S. Belgian in Jun 1868 from Liverpool to Quebec. Family tradition says that he traveled down the St. Lawrence Seaway and through the Great Lakes to arrive at Marquette, Michigan. His future wife, Anna Kathrina Carlsdotter, went to America the next year as did his mother, Anna Lisa Jansdotter, and his brother Elias Andersson. The Bethany Lutheran Church records in Ishpeming, Michigan show that his family went to Minnesota in 1876. Family tradition says that he walked from Michigan to Minnesota during the summer of 1875 and chose land. He returned to Michigan and brought the family in the spring of 1876.
