Reading this book by Jörgen Hedman opened up a whole new aspect on Swedish Finn history and culture for me. According to the book, some of the colonists that moved from Sweden to Southern Finland after the second crusade in the 1200's soon continued their migration, settling on Dagö and Wormsö on the Estonian coast. Their story is absolutely fascinating. Now Jörgen Hedman has furnished an English excerpt which is available at http://www.svenskbyborna.com/Historia/Historiska%20dokument/Hedman%20Zmiivka%20history%20eng%20vers.htm
Worth while reading.
