Hi Trev,

I have tried to find some information about your John Akman Andersen without success. There appears to be great uncertainty about his real name in Norway and where in Norway he has his roots. The birth date might be something to focus on. However, statistically about 50 boys were born every day in 1851 in Norway. The church records will be available online before the end of the year, but some church records are lost for ever. A better approach might be to identify potential candidates in the 1865 census born in 1851 and check if some of them were born on the right date, but also that will be quite a task as long as the name is uncertain. The names John, Carl, Eriksen and Andersen are very common in Norway and will generate a large number of potential candidates.

The name Akman is not found in the 1865 census. However, there are several with Ekman as surname, but none born in 1851.

Maybe someone else has a suggestion on how to find this man or do you have any additional information on him?

John Akman Anderson is recorded in the New Zealand Society og Genealogy's (NZGS) Index V. 5. The NZGS Certificates Collection has him registered 09.07.1881 in Foxton. Since he is registered as John Akman Anderson, he is probably more likely from Sweden than Norway.
