My Immigrant Ancestors: Albert and Emma Anderson

This example of Immigration in the USA is taken from my own family tree.

Genealogy is a weird hobby. Information that I thought would be easy to locate and identify is not available through online resources or very difficult to track down; and details that I had not expected to find (ever…at all) randomly turn up.

This couple is an example of people who I expected to find without difficulty. Thus far, they have proven to be strangely absent from all of the usual paperwork (e.g.: census roles, immigration documentation, city directories, etc.).

However, they are the last immigrants within my reasonably immediate family line (e.g.: between me and my great-great-great grandparents). As noted earlier, there are significantly more among those who spent many generations living on the Canadian side of the border, but they require far more research and will have to wait for another time.

The following details are part of research-in-progress. This is the best data currently available to me.
