Hi Sokko

I too have a query regarding a murder / kidnapping in Boston of my great great aunt in 1902.

According to church records Edla Soderblom, born 27.01.1881 in Maxmo Finland died 1902 in Amerika under mysterious circumstances.

Perhaps someone can give us help or suggestions to find out more about our ancestors disappearance.

Thanks Denise for the info. EXCELLENT!
I will contact the NYC Municpal Archives for a copy of the records.
Hopefully" cause of death "will be given.

This has been a great day for results, I just found Edla's passport info on the Finland's Institute of migration site.

Thanks again
