View Full Version : Nyman family

23-07-06, 22:31
My grandfather Karl Hugo Nyman came to the US from Finland in 1914 from Hango and settled in NY. His parents were Matilda and Karl and his bothers were Frederick and Possibly Rodolf. I am hoping to find family in the US and in Finland

Can you give some birthdates and places for these people? Nyman is a common name and I have lots of them in my database. Perhaps some member will have some data about them.

My grandfather was Karl Hugo Nyman. I have a document dated 18/2/1891 with the words Embetsbetyg ar190 N:0 and a picture of a church with Borga Stift under it. I know his father was also Karl and his mother was Matilda. Brothers were Frederick and perhaps Rudolf. They came to the US in 1914 and lived in Brooklyn for a while. My grandfather married Tyyne Karmeniemi in 1922 and they lived in Valley, Stream, NY. I have no knowledge of my great uncles or great grandparents after their arrival in NY. Thank you. Sandra
