Alf,
I emailed the actual census to you on Elisa Erikson. Doesn't have info. whether she was married or not. She was living in a private home as a servant.

Also would there be an alternative Americanized name for Valdemar?

Thanks for the info!

According to the info I (We) already have Valdemar is born on the Åland Island, not in Sweden.

1889 there are two options according to HisKi:

Johan Edvard Waldemar born 17 August 1889 in Brändö, on/in Thorsholma.

Father Sjöman Fredrik Edvard Thorén and mother Ida Kristina Pettersdotter (24).

Or

Mathias Waldemar born 10 November 1889 in Lemland, on/in Söderby (?).

Father Skeppare Mikael Sjölund and mother Ida (32).

According to the information I have the family lived in Canada.

........

An other name for Elisa Idasdotter Riska could be Anna Alice Idasdotter Fröjdö (Fröjdholm).

Elisa = Alice?


She was born 27 November 1908 in Kronoby and came to USA in 1929.

According to my information she was married and lived in USA.

So was it Canada or USA?

Hej Alf,

I checked Håkan Skogsjö’s books about Brändö and Lemland

Johan Edvard Waldemar died 22 March 1890 in Torsholma Brändö.

I do not find Mathias Waldemar born 10 November 1889 but I found a Skeppare Mikael Sjölund born 24 feb 1846 in Söderby and his wife Ida Johanna Annasdotter born 13 Aug 1860 Their last son Mikael Ebenhard born 30 May 1887 in Flaka Lemland and the family moved away and the vicar recorded in the church book that the father lived in America 1880s and Ida living abroad 1892 and their children lived also abroad 1891 and 1892.
