Thanks, thought that there should be some sort of category already, but as usual couldn't find it. I've added the closest relatives that went missing in Minnesota. I'll add other more distant relatives to the list as I come by them.
I don't mind helping, but I don't think I will be much help when it comes to emigration during the 1600's. Family records for this era is kind of hard to come by and even harder to interpret the handwriting. I can see there's some questions regarding the correct spelling of some surnames. How do you go about finding this out? Educated guesses? Joransson is probably Göransson, that's the most common spelling, though phonetically it was probably Jöransson way back when.
