View Full Version : Translation Help - Esse Parish Church Record

08-05-05, 21:04
Thanks to Chuck's research at the Swenson Center, I found out that another set of my great-grandparents were born in Esse Parish, Finland! I found the birth record for my great-grandfather Erik on microfilm, but I am having trouble reading it.

From other records I determined his mother's name was Anna Lassila, and I think that's what this says, and from the format I am assuming she was not married at the time.

I would appreciate any help in confirming what this attachment says.
