In the Ancestry boards this is posted. I thought maybe someone could connect with this:
While at a yard sale last weekend I found a basket of pictures & genealogy research of a lady who had died with no heirs. Her father's name was Carl Finstrom. He was born in Nukarleby, Finland in 1902. His parents moved to Brooklyn, NY shortly after his birth. He had several siblings born in Brooklyn. I am hoping to find a relative who would like this material. There are four books published in the the 1930 that trace the families back to the 1600's.
Other families mentioned - Boman & Lassila

This Finstrom can be found in Göran Berglund's collection in Talko. Maybe somebody can recognize them from the attached snapshot from the database.

These must be several families around Brooklyn related to this couple!
