I loose family members when they immigrate to North America. For example:
3 sisters (Maja Kajsa Johannesdotter/GDTL-LY1/8 May 1864/Mary Johnson; Anna Sofia Johannesdotter/GDTL-GXK/26 July 1866/Anna Johnson; Augusta Johannesdotter/GDTL-VHM/30 August 1869/Augusta Johnson), each born in Holm, Älvsborg, Sweden, emigrated from Sweden as single women to: North America/7 March 1885; North America/7 March 1885; & Quebec/28 April 1893. After departing Sweden, I cannot reliably find them (immigration, marriage or census records) in North America or Quebec. Do you have suggestions of how I can reliably find them, especially if they married after arriving in North America or Quebec?
Hej! Kan du skriva ex 1) Maja ….. efternamn … år .
kan du skriva så man förstår det är inte så lätt annars jag undrar om du kan Mails mig. Då kan jag fixa allt. Hur många ska jag söka? Kan du översätta detta till engelska? Jag kan inte skriva. Jag lovar att försöka att hjälpa sig om jag kan. Anette0

Comment: Anette appears to be offering to help with your 3 sisters lines - but I am unsure if she means the location in US or extending them further on ancestral lines. She appears to be a native Swedish speaker - you may need to use a translator to convert English to Swedish.0
Thank you for responding. For each sister I provided their: full Swedish maiden name (e.g., Maja Kajsa Johannesdotter); Familysearch ID number (e.g., GDTL-LY1) Full birthdate (e.g., 8 May 1864); Anglicized maiden name (e.g., Mary Johnson); where they immigrated to (e.g., North America); and their full date emigrated from Sweden (e.g., 8 March 1885). Where I need help is after they arrive in North America. Thank you.0
I have no expertise in Swedish immigration to US/Canada records - but thought I would do a quick check for Maja. On Ancestry I find:
It indicates Maja arrived in New York 29 May 1885. Perhaps the trail will continue under an Anglicised/Americanized name.
