In 1912, The Andersson family decided they would emigrate to Winnipeg Manotoba. No doubt the fact that a sister already lived there helped. Also, the fact that Alfrida's sister, Mrs. Anna Danbom was returning to America from her stay in Sweden. The Anderssons, along with the Danboms, Boarded the RMS Titanic as third class passengers

A short time before they sailed, Mrs. Andersson wrote a letter to her sister, Mrs. Zachrisson of Winnipeg.
The letter said that she expressed the opinion that it might not be well to travel on a new vessel, which had not yet crossed the ocean, she didn't, however, give any reason for her concern. As can be seen from the childrens dates of birth above, the two eldest Andersson children, Sigrid and Ingeborg, had birth days coming up. They died one day before, never reaching their 12th and 10th birthdays. All the Anderssons died on that fateful day of 15 April 1912.

The Anderssons. this picture must be from 1910, by the fact that Ellis only a small baby
