View Full Version : Family Wäre

I live in Finland and I am seeking my roots from around Fitcburg region where both my grandfather and my grand oncle have lived over some time. My grandfather was there between 1909-1913 and came back the same year my grand oncle came over there. My grand oncle, Anton Ware (Wäre) died over there in Fitchburg 1939 at Burbank hospital. Him and his wife (Olga) had a child called Aune who would be in her late 80's if she was still alive and I have no knowledge of any possible decendents that she might have had. If anybody there knows anything about it, please contact me by the e-mail.

Yours truly, Pentti Roitto

He stated that he was going to Anton Ware in Mass.
Ancestry.com does not have much in death records for Massachusetts.
Perhaps a member who lives in Mass. can find more for you.

I was at Swenson Swedish center this morning but I did not find anybody by the surname Ware (Wäre) in the membership index or on the baptismal records.
They probably attended a Finnish language church in that town.
