View Full Version : translation help

Need a little help on translating the Viitasaari parish church birth record of my grandfather. Hopefully the screen shot is attached. This is what I have so far(matched to the screen):
Taavetti___torp, Antii Strand-
man____Anna Ruuska__Keiha
rinkoski no 1, Marthila(?)____
Juho Pasanen, Kustava Ruuska

He was born Aug. 22, 1884. father was Antti Strandman. mother Anna Ruuska.
Are others grandparents? godparents? And the last line seems a mystery.
Thanks in advance for any help ! Ashtabula,Ohio Finn Ed Hartshorn

There's a family on Geni with the same names and could be the same family: https://www.geni.com/people/Anders-Strandman/6000000044032502495?through=6000000044031817314

There's also an Anders Johansson Strandman, b. 1732, married 1759 in Overpurmo to Sophia Jakobsdotter Hviloback.
