Jaska Sarell has Anna Lisa Jacobsdotter Mård, b. 16 Jan 1850 in his database. Have you checked Talko to see if there is any more data about her?

Since my Talko entry, I've added Jakob Eriksson Jåfs to my database [from someone else's Talko data I guess]. He's my FFF's 2nd cousin, and I'm always interested in the descendants of his MMF (= my FFFFFF) Matts Eriksson Påvals (1755-1836).

Hello !
I think Lars Forsén in Ytteresse would have more details about this family.I have data about siblings to Erik "Eirik" Ena ,Matts Jacobsson,and descendants to him.It´s another branch for sure but if you are interested I could forward it .

Here is where Sidnaw is in the UP. Too far away from any Swedish church and I didn't find him, Eriksson, on my dbase.

EDIT: I think this software won't handle the long long url - the above result got me into Nebraska:)
This is how to do it. google for sidnaw, michigan, then select the MAPQUEST MAP, do not use google map because I've tried it a couple times before and gotten an image which did not place the name of the town that I wanted - what is google thinking?
Then with mapquest, select the next value below where it is and you will see the western half of the UP and can readily see that this little burg is not close to a town with a Swedish church.

Checked with the family here in Esse. They know nothing and the relatives in USA that they have contacts with know nothing either about those that went further to New Zealand.

Here's some interesting articles about Finnish emigrants to New Zealand.





Only some 1,500 - 2,000 Finns have migrated to New Zealand. Early arrivals were mariners who formed scattered coastal settlements. The main Finnish inflow was in the 1950s and 1960s when the growing pulp and paper industry imported Finnish technology. Groups of Finns and their families were recruited by New Zealand Forest Products Ltd. The majority went to Tokoroa and Kawerau where they found the conditions bleak, but they quickly adapted. A sauna was built and sports and cultural activities were organised by the Finnish club. Some chain migration of friends and relatives followed. By the 1970s second-generation Finns had been assimilated, and the Finnish club closed in 1984. Today the majority of Finns live in Auckland, which has an active Finnish society.

The above mentioned book by Olavi Koivukangas of the Institute of Migration about Finns in New Zealand doesn't list Erik Jakobsson Ena or Jacobson.
Perhaps because he didn't go there directly from Finland (?).

BTW. Are there many "kiwis" in our forum?

I have got information about the living descendants in New Zealand now. The local families in Esse have been able to trace their relatives.
