Johanssons in Latvia ?
Posted by: Kristine Johanson (ID *****6926) Date: December 18, 2006 at 11:30:35

Hello all,
My great-grandfather Gottfrid (sp is not definite) Herman Johansson left Riga, Latvia and ended up (via the German merchant marine it is believed) in the States in the 1910s. He changed the spelling of his name to Johanson when he became legal at Ellis Island. When he left Latvia, he left a brother and a sister. Does anyone have any information about Johanssons in Riga?

thanks and best,
Kristine
