Hi all
I took a look at the original Mollastadd passenger list. I think it is her. All the names on the list are Swedish even though it states that they came from Switzerland. Her name according to A......y.com is Ailda but looks like Hilda.

Hulda was born 17 March 1856 in Goth Garrison, Gothenburg Sweden.

Hi Carol,
Would just like to note that Goth was my abbreviation for Gothenburg.

Hi
I have noticed that on both passenger lists from Sweden to England and England to New York there is a James R Olson and a Jas B Olson travelling with Hulda. This could be a clue maybe.

I have the name Mollerstedt with a second wife with the name Olsson born about 1845 . He was from Goteborg in Sweden and they moved to Hamburg Germany where they were married. The family seem to be seamen or suppliers for them and so moved easily from Sweden to Hamburg to Hull and Liverpool and America. One aunt lives in Goteburg but has the surname Aellollersredt ? One relative seems to live in Geneva.
