I am looking for connections to the following:

Karl Henrik Sundstrom b.1838 Abo (modern Turku), Finland, d. 25 April 1904, Aberdeen
married Mary Elizabeth Goff in Weymouth, England

children: Margaret b. 1877
Caroline Elizabeth b.1878
Charles Henry b. 1880
John George Mitchell b.1883
William b. abt 1885
Fredrick b. abt 1888
Isaac Alfred b. 1890
Mary charlotte b. 1894
Alec b. 1898
Agnes Grant b. 1898

Oral, family history tells us that Karl was from the Aland Islands and that his father's name was Mickle. Otherwise, I can find nothing about his origins in Finland.

I have descendants of several of the children to present but some are missing and I would love to find connections in Finland.

hold down the ALT key and simultaneously press, on the keypad, numerals 143 to get Å and ALT134 to get å
Åbo is the current name in Swedish for Turku - Turku is the Finnish language name for the place so both are current. On older documents, the Swedish placename was prevalent.

So endeth the placename and special characters lesson found in - don't know where but welcome to sfhs.

If the history about the Åland Islands is true, which doesn't seem unlikely when considering the familyname one link also can be http://genealogi.aland.net/discus/

Thank you all for the research suggestions. I just returned from a trip that included a week in Finland. We loved everything about it and our time there was the highlight of the trip. Although I did not have time to do any family history research this time, I will definitely do some the next time.
