I noticed ppl from Finland and Sweden and elsewhere so maybe useful to somebody?

I've spotted several from Åland while looking into things.

Hey! Draka :)
Many parish names are really fractured and unfortunately a lot of guys are just listed as from Finland.
If you have somebody lost in Alaska, he could be here. I've seen birth years as early as 1876 listed.

More details about them are recorded in the book "Finns Swedes and Norwegians in the Alaska World War I Draft Registrations 1917-1918" by Timothy Laitila Vincent
Maria Enckell gave me this book last summer. I got also her book "Documenting the legacy of the Alaska Finns from the Russian period"
