The 5 other Swedish language churches did not list any Finnish born people.

There! All the Finnish born in Maine!
I did not check marital records or funeral lists because most often birthplaces are not listed, just last residence.

The parish name of Munsala and Finland was quite clear for the woman while the man had this strange parish with "Sv" in the column following. The woman had "Finl" in the column following.

A mini-mystery as to why that was done:)

Hilda Emelina Sjöblom, b. Jan 27, 1877 in Sanda, Föglö. It seems that also her 6 years old daughter Anna Karolina emigrated together 1901. Hilda Emelina returned back to Föglö before 1912 and then moved to Sweden and was married Holmström and died 1928. Also the daughter Anna Karolina returned and was married Tyskars from Kimito.
