ANDERSON posted by Verna Johnson on Tuesday, June 15, 1999

I am looking for two records for Amanda ANDERSON, born in Sweden in 1863, who came from Sweden and lived and died in Ridgway, Elk County, PA during November 1957. I would be happy to pay someone to research these two questions. First, I am looking for a marriage record for her, in order to know her married name, if she did marry. Second, I am hoping someone could check the obituaries for the month of November 1957 in the Ridgway newspaper, looking for anyone named Amanda, born in Sweden about 1863, who died that month, so that I can have a copy of the obituary. If she did not marry, her name will be ANDERSON. If she did marry, she will of course be listed under her married name. She had a niece Emy ANDERSON, who lived in Philadelphia, and a nephew August ANDERSON of Bellingham, WA, who may or may not be listed in the obituary. Swedish relatives are trying to find descendants of the family. Thank you in advance for any help you can give us.
