Hello and welcome to Finlander

I can only add a little to the information you have from the HisKi database for Tammisaari - Ekenäs as it has only
Christened (1724-1849)
Buried (1663-1713, 1722-1733)
This appears to be 2 children for the eldest daughter
Tammisaari - Ekenäs - christened

Born Christened Father Mother Child

Hi Glory,
Unfortunately I'm not replying to assist in your research but rather to ask if you're from Perth.

I traveled to Australia 2 different times. The first trip we took the Indian Pacific from Sydney to Perth. I didn't get to see Monkey Mia, the Bungles(or was it Bungle Bungle??), the Pinnacles or the Wave Rock, but I did enjoy Perth very much. It is one of my favorite cities in the world! We got to see the black swans and a sunset on the Indian Ocean. It's always had a special place in my memories and I'm so glad we have someone from your neck of the woods.

Besides Jeanette, I think there's another member from Australia, Ruth Jericho, who doesn't post much but if I recall, she's from the Gold Coast area. It has always intrigued me how some Finnish immigrants ended up in Australia. It just seems SO far away.

I hope you'll find the Forum a valuable resource in your pursuit of ancestors. Please feel free to introduce yourself!

You will have to remember that the sea never devides but unifies. With all the sailing ships from Finland going on the wheat-trade Australia - Europe that isn't at all amasing. Just sit at the beach, check the sea and think of what you might find behind the horisonte ;) That makes you curious.
