Thank so much, June, for letting me know about this site. No, I had not known of it before.

I have been to Finland with my husband, who is the Finn in the family, and met his second cousin, Arne Karp, in Veikars in 2001. I have a goodly amount of information on the Herman Edberg side of the family. Herman was my husband's Grandfather. However, I now want to research Herman's wife, whom he married in the US in 1900.

Her name is Marie Erickson who was born in the Vaasa area on 27 July 1881. Possibly she was also from Veikarsby and that she and Herman had known each other in Finland. She immigrated to America about 1895, with her family.

Her parents were Gustav Erickson, born June 1848, and Beata or Beatia Nickelson, born January, 1845. They were married in Finland in 1873.

Any help on Grandmother and her family will be most appreciated. Thank you!
