I got much help from you some months ago when you found my relatives who emigrated to Astoria and became members of Peace Lutheran church. I thought that it would be easy to trace them from this information.

After that I have been in contact with a friend living in Astoria without getting any further information. I also got the email address to PLC in Astoria and posted my question twice without any answer.

Is there anyone who might help me find my relatives in Astoria? Is there any church records available for this church?

I can forward the information that I have if someone thinks that they might help me.

Hi Christian,
Some of these ppl had been found in the church earlier.
As I have it, Gustafsson-Tarvonen Fredrik Henrik was located but I didn't see all of the children named.
I did not find Gustafson Jakob
I didn't find Gustafsson Maria
I did not find Johansson Anders
I did find Gustafsson Lovisa by way of Matts Nylund which was, as I recall it, the wrong Matts for another query but he fit you well.
Gustafson Johanna I didn't find.

OK, I doubt I find anything new - many pages show rather weak ink but I will try to find Gustafson Jakob
and Gustafsson Maria
and Johansson Anders

Some of these were found by Jeanette and Kevin and June so I don't expect to learn anything new given the indistinct writing on the pages of that church.
I hope to get to it tomorrow and if not, it must wait my return from Colorado.

I found an earlier members book with baptism listings to more information for you. The early book was within the pages of a book of church protokols which is why it was overlooked. Swenson has made a note of it for their new list:)

EDIT: I did find a couple of baptismal records which showed Jakob Gustafson and Wilhelmina as parents. I didn't find them as members in the early pages. I made one copy because Lillie Ulrika Gustafson was listed in the church as born 5 Febr 1896. Once he sees the fotocopies, he will be able to sift thru and give us all a list of ppl he is missing and what he knows of them.
