Can anyone out there help me locate family of Gustaf Hjort; b.17 Apr l865.
Vasa, finland;death cert. gives father, Abraham Hjort; mother, Maria Varg; He married in USA to Edla Swanlund b.29 Dec l864, Vasa, Finland. Census info gives his arrival l883 and hers 1888. Looking at Kvevlax cemetery inscriptions I find name of Hjort and Svanlund. So maybe Swanlund is americanzed spelling. Are Hjort, Svanlund and Varg farm names?
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
