I have received another request for help from Sweden. Can anyone offer help or suggestions?:

STORBACKA, Matts Teodor Mattsson Nygård-
b. 18 Jul 1885, Terjärv, Finland To USA 1948

Teodor was my father and he died in Finland autumn 1963 when i was 6 years old. He was 72 at my birth. He also traveled to USA in 1902 for the first time.

This summer, july 9, we vill have a great meeting for all relatives i Småbönders in Terjärv, Finland.

I don't know much about my father's life in USA. I know he lived in Wisconsin for a long time, where my aunt Ester also lived. It would be nice to get information of my father, his life ower there, military service and so on.... Where do I find such information.
