Gotta Watch Those Genders-Finding Hedvig Olson
This is the index entry for Hedvig C. Olson in the New York Passenger Lists 1820-1897 at Ancestry.com. Her gender is shown in the index as male. Before the index is criticized however, a look at the actual manifest actually indicates Hedvig is a male as shown by entry 119 on the actual manifest for the Britannic which arrived in New York on 10 March 1888.
