Hello, just started as a member of this forum. I am living in Vanda in Finland and born in Terjärv. I am searching for information about three brothers to my grandfather Nils Arvid Dahlvik.
Matts Dahlvik ( date 15.8.1906 in the passanger report). My father has told me that he came back to Finland, but it would be great to find some information about his stay in America.
The other brother is Anders Dahlvik ( born 27.1.1886). My father has told me that he died in America after a appendictius-operaration (forgotten a “towel” in his stomach). Would be nice the find out where he lived and died. My father assumed it could be Seattle.
The third brother is Emil Dahlvik – he died in America in 26.8.1941. Any information about his stay is of great interest. I have also noted Dahlström as last name for him. He might have changed it from Dahlvik to Damström.
I must admit that America has not been a country close to my hearth, but suddenly I get a huge
interest for this country because of the book June mentioned is new in Tejärv (Emigration) this summer. It would be a pleasure to visit this country for the first time by visiting the places these
three men did live in.
I am grateful for all the help someone could give to me in this new area for me.
Kind Regards,

Kristina mentioned the new book about emigrants from Terjärv "Emigrantvägar" by Hilding Widjeskog and Ole Granholm. Ole sent me a copy of the book and I look forward to reading it - full of pictures and articles about various emigrants from Terjärv.
