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

Occupation: Carpenter

Residence: Alafors, Sweden

Kin: Mother – Anna Larsson of Goteborg, Sweden

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, Göteborg, Sweden.

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

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