Chuck,

Thanks. Yes, Victor probably is the person, along with his wife. His relatives in Finland are trying to find out what happened to the family - he had 8 children.

Hi June,
Do you know if any of your Hendrickson's came from/settled in The Aland Islands? My uncle's surname was Hendrickson. He later changed it to Bjorkfelt. Karen

Karen,

I don't think so. The family name was Rif, and the children who emigrated took the name Hendrickson - and they settled in MI, MN and WI.
