Ninni, Need a few more specifics to work with. Born US or Finland? Emigrated to US? It saves alot of time if we know where we're searching. Karen

Ninni, No luck as yet with Axel Valdemar, but I did find Lena Skomars and son Johan arriving Boston in June 1903 on SS Commonwealth, destination Quincy, Oregon. She is 32, child is 4. Going to husband John Skomars. The Institute of Migrations verifies a Lena H Skomars age 32, destination Portland, OR, left Fin. 10.6.1903, left Liverpool 18.6.1903 on Commonwealth. Travelling with Johan I Skomars. Johan is listed as US citizen on arrival in Boston. Also found a Carl Johan Skomars, age 31, arriving April 1910 to Philadelphia on SS Haverford. says married, laborer, from Narpes, Finland, in US before 18?9-1908 in IL. Nearest relative in Finland mother Maria Skomars in Narpes. Says going to friend Carl Holm in NY.The age would fit the DOB of 1879. There are many Skomars found on Ancestry, but so far no Axel or Valdemar or Else. Most of those found settled in MN, CT, MA, NY, OR, MT and WA. I'll keep looking. Karen
