Research Issues

Identification of primary person (Olga):
Facts:
In Göteborg harbour a "Olga" (no surname), aged 11 leaves on 1882-04-28 in the company of Mathilda Nilsdotter (1860-12-25), using the same ticket, but noted as "syster" (= sister). The relationship is further supported by the fact that Olga has no surname registered and that Mathilda is the ticket holder. Surnames are usually not recorded for children travelling with their family.
Mathilda does not have a sister named Olga.
Discussion:
Olga is of course too young to travel alone.
The proposed Olga is Olga Rebecka Olivia, daughter of Olaus Tapper and Sofia Lovisa Carlsdotter, born 1871-05-14.
HFL records her emigration to America on 1882-04-22. She will become 11 years old in 3 weeks. This matches the harbour record well. Full set of given names are seldom recorded in the harbour records so the "missing" Rebecka Olivia names is not a problem.
I have seen many other instances where a young child travels with another person, a distant relative or a neighbour.
