No Ida Kristina in my family

There is no Ida Kristina in my family. Olaf had three children, named Esther, Victor and Elmer. However, my grandfather, Walter (Valdemar), named one of his daughters Ida Nicolina. His first wife (not my grandmother) was named Maren Christina Anderson, but these are probably just coincidences.
I did find that Andreas Johansen (Johannsson) and his wife, Ane, came to the US through Ellis Island, having come from Denmark on the ship, the "Hekla." I would recommend the Ellis Island site as they even have a photo of the ship. It is a highly used site though, and they are inundated with hits.
E-mail me at and tell me who you are looking for. I don't know if I can help you but you never know what you will find out unless you ask.
bye, dj
