View Full Version : Church Records

16-12-04, 07:05

I'm trying to find out who my grandparent's parents are. He was born in the Åland islands, probably in Eckerö. I'm looking specifically for church records of the local parish, however, the available microfilm from SVAR doesn't go late enough. I'm looking for parish records in Eckerö in 1911. I was wondering if anyone could help me in any way, or where I can turn, or whom I can write, thank you in advance,

The first name which comes to mind is Ingemar Ekman, a member of Finlander. You can email him through the member list. He's helped innumerable people to find their roots in Åland.
