Fritz Olson – Passenger List

Eureka! I have discovered a the passenger list for Fritz Olson. I confirmed that this is our Fritz Olson because Carla Ingrid Maria Edberg also traveled upon this same steamer. Here is what this passenger list reveals:

Ship: S.S. Arabic sailing from Liverpool, England

Manifest Date: September 10, 1912

Arrival Date: September 18, 1912

Passenger: Fritz Olson

Age: 18

Marital Status: Single

Friend’s Name: Andrew Freeman

Update: Marriage record shows Fritz Olsson’s mother’s maiden name as Anna Freman and this passenger list shows it as Anna Larsson (as best as I can make it out). Perhaps she was
married as second time after her husband’s death.

Anna Larsson’s home address is listed as Taubegatan 29, G├Âteborg, Sweden.

Map of Alafors, Sweden (home of Fritz) to Gothenburg (home of mother).

Fritz’s friend is listed as Andrew Freeman. Perhaps a cousin?
