I am looking for this relative Daniel Alarik Söderlund born at Sund, Åland Finland 25.9.1881.

He arrived at New York from Southampton the 3rd May 1902 with ship Philadelphia. I do not know where he went then but at some times he returned back to Finland and get married abt 1910.

I would be grateful to get some information of him when he was in U.S.A.

According to your information Daniel arrived in 1902. USA has
census records taken every 10 years and if he returned to
Finland before 1910 he would not be on any census records.

I did not come up with any information on census records
on him.

Ancestry.com under one world tree shows a
Daniel Alarik Soderlund b. 1881 d. 1948
married to: Mimmi Irene Haggblum
one child Rolf Magnus Soderlund
b. 1919 Finland

Father John D. Soderlund
M. Johanna Suibergsson

My mother’s 3rd cousin was married to an older sister to Daniel Alarik Söderlund and then the sister was re-married to my grandmother’s 4th cousin, after her first husband died.

It seems that Daniel Alarik Söderlund returned back to Åland? The information in Håkan Skogsjö’s book is that Daniel Alarik died 1948 in Saltvik Åland. He was married with a woman from Hammarland, Åland.

Daniel Alarik had also following siblings:
Johan Erik 1869 - 1918, moved to Uleåborg

Gustav Gösta 1886 – 1965 (he was also married with a distant cousin to me Olga Matilda Englund 1894-1976) and 6 more that died in young age.
The book “Familjer och Gårdar i Sund” by H. Skogsjö has much more information about the families above. You may find the book at the library in Helsinki.

Hi Ingemar,

Thank you for the information I got from you. It was nice to get so much about Daniel A. Söderlund. I am satisfied with what I have got so I do not think I need more about his relatives.

Once more many thanks for what I got.
