THE EMIGRATION MACHINERY

The Swedish mass emigration would not have been possible without the Swedish railroads and the organized passenger traffic over the Atlantic. At this time no Swedish line carried passengers directly from Gothenburg to New York. The Swedes therefore had to use British or German ships. The emigrant route started with the train ride to the big port of Gothenburg, where the complete passage, such as Gothenburg-Chicago, of the British Wilson Line, which brought the emigrants to Hull in England. A train took them across the country to Liverpool or Glasgow; from there the Inman Line or some other company's ships sailed them to New York. The whole voyage Gothenburg-New York need not take more than three weeks in 1870.

" My sister remembers mother talking about Uncle August but that is all I know
about Johan August being in the States. She thinks he might have lived in Chicago.
It looks to me as if he changed from Svensson to Johansson in 1880 and maintained that surname from then on."

I suppose that Christen left Sottrup and Slesvig because of the war 1864 and its consequences. He was 20 years old and he could look forward to Prussian/ German military service from 1867.
