If they followed the normal route, they would have traveled to Hull, England, on a feeder ship. Then they would have taken a train to an English port such as Liverpool or Southampton to get on a larger ship for the rest of their sailing to "Amerika".

The SweGGate site will be helpful to you.

This site tells how to find ship manifests.

The Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, is often a big help to us. They have a website but their extensive resources are not online.

I suggest that you ask further questions about your Swedes on the Sweden board.
