I am looking for suggestions on research for this person and his wife, Anna Louisa Feltberg Feltburg who immigrated from Sweden.  I've tried the usual routes, but so far have come up empty, besides some additional information on Jonas Feltberg (Anna Louisa's father).

Any suggestions would be helpful!

Thanks, Frank.  I have this too.  There seems to be nothing else out there though, so if anyone has any other suggestions, please let me know.  THANKS!!
There was a Carl Magnus Swanson who died in Chippewa, MN 7 Oct 1947.

There was a Magnus Swanson, married to Anna Kristine. They had a son, Magnus Swanson,who was born 30 Mar 1891 Minneapolis, Hennepin, MN.
Frank, You are a gem!  Thanks for the information.  My Carl Magnus passed away in 1932 in Wilcox, Elk County, PA.  What I am looking for are suggestions for doing research in Sweden, I guess.  With the naming issue Svens- son, I am looking for how to go about determining which Sven was the father of my Carl Magnus.  Also, I do have his wife's name and her father's, which was Feltburg, which she did not follow the tradition of becoming Jonass-daughter,  as her father's first name was Jonas.

How do I go about determining which part of Sweden they came from.  Since Carl Magnus Swanson immigrated at approximately the same time (1870), and were married shortly thereafter, June 1871, and settled in the same  place, I am making a leap of faith that they possibly immigrated together, and knew each other prior to immigration, and ergo, maybe came from the same area.  So, do you have any suggestions on research in Sweden???

Thanks for all of your replies on other topics too!  You are great!
