View Full Version : Anton Marander Search

10-07-06, 05:30
I am a desendant of Anton Marander (great-granddaughter, he lived in Vasa, Finland before settling in america in Bessemer, Michigan.

I'm trying to find other people in this particular line.

Should anyone have any information, please contact me. I have searched this website a little and seen the name "Kurt Marander" he is a distant relative according to me records, and from what my grandma told me.

I have never signed up for a website like this before-real nervous.

Hi Sherry,

Welcome to Finlander. I noticed there are a lot of Marander names in the Talko database. If you can give more data about your great grandfather Anton - when and where he was born, married, etc. - perhaps someone will be able to help you.

Hi Sherry,
If Kurt Marander is a relative, I would recommend his book "Släkten Marander" where you will find all your Maranders.
In my database there is a lot of Maranders, but a few names only are of interest to you - and I have given also those names to Kurt Marander.

Sherry, I am not sure where Anton fits into the geneology, but I am the great granddaughter of John Emil Marander from Ironwood Michigan. Bernt Edward Marander & Florence Estelle Peterson were my grandparents.

Hi Sherry,

Don't be nervous! This is one of the friendliest and best websites I have ever worked with!:)

I have the "Släkten Marander" book, which was sent to me by Kurt Marander, as I, too, am related to the family. And my family is from Vaasa/Vasa, too!

Let me know what you need and I will be happy to help you in any way that I can!

seems likely that was a relative since my grandpa was from Ironwood as well-things that make you go hmm
