I'm looking for information in Finland about the wife of my great-uncle Johan Forslund. I have all the info from here in the US. Don't need any of that.
Ulrika (Rika) Hjärp or alternate spellings, was born 17 May 1879, I think in Korsholm. She died 8 May 1960 in Alpha, Iron, MI. I'm looking for her parents names, any siblings etc. I found a Ulrika Hjerp on Migration leaving 25 Aug 1900 which I believe is her. Any help appreciated. Karen

It would appear the Ulrika from 1900 was not my Ulrika. I found her in the NY Passenger Lists from 5 Aug 1896 on the Teutonic. Says from Mustasaari and going to Chicago. That year is the same she gave on the 1920 and 1930 census. The 1910 census says 1906, but that's when she was already married and returning from a trip back to Finland with her family.
I found another Ulrika Hjerpe on the west coast, probably the one who left Finland in 1900.

Denise,
Thank you. Several of your finds look promising. The 2 Hjerpe in Mustasaari give me a clue to possible villages, Singsby or Böle. Also, the 1896 passport seems to go with the 5 Aug 1896 arrival on the Teutonic. I'll check into the Herman Hjerpe and wife in Crystal Falls since that's where Ulrika ended up.

Hi Karen
I checked the churchbook for Korsholm and there is no Ulrika Hjerppe or various spelling born May 17 1879 in Korsholm.The only one that is possible match is Ulrika Hjerppe born May 16 1878 on Hjerppe farm no 2 in Singsby, father of Ulrika is Karl Hermansson b.March 5 1845 and mother Maria Sofia Simonsdotter b.Dec 14 1844. Ulrika emigrated to Amerika July 11 1896 so this indicates that it could be the Ulrika you are searching for. She had 5 brothers and 4 sisters.

Christer,
Thank you so much. I have found so many alternative spellings for Hjerpe. I've also found various ages for Ulrika, so it's possible the birthdate is off. One place I found 1879, another 1876. At least this gives me something to work with. By any chance was one of her brothers a Herman? Karen

Denise

Hi Karen,
On the Institute of Migration I can't get the pages to open on Herman Hjerpe and spouse (Finnish Americans) that went to Crystal Falls. I think the site is having problems, but it's been for 2 days now that I can't get the links to open. As soon as I can get the page to open, I'll send the information to you. I don't think it's my computer :confused:

Best Regards,
Denise

I can check the birthdays for these people the next time i go to the archive if you like,that will probably be tomorrow evening.Im pretty sure that this Ulrika is the right one.Ellis Island had her birthyear 1876.

I would love to have the birthdates if it's not too much trouble.
I really appreciate your kindness. I am in close touch with Ulrika's grandson who is my second cousin. I really hope this is my Ulrika. Karen

Hi Karen
Here are the birthdates of Ulrikas brothers and sisters and its no trouble at all, this is what i like to do.
Karl b.Oct 25 1869 in Singsby
Hilma Sofia b.Oct 25 1873 in Singsby
Herman Aug 19 1876 in Singsby
August b.July 12 1879 in Singsby
Otto Vilhelm b.Jan 26 1881 in Singsby
Maria Mathilda b.March 19 1882
Ida Carolina b.Feb 23 1887 in Singsby d.Dec 26 1891 in Singsby
Johannes b.Sept 20 1890 in Singsby d.Nov 11 1890 in Singsby
This info is from Korsholm churchbook 1887-1896 Hjerppe farm no 2 in Singsby
Note about Herman, moved to town ( Nikolaistad= Vasa) March 5 1896.
Father of these children Karl Hermanson Hjerppe b.March5 1845 was the son of Herman Israelsson Hjerpe ( note spelling) b.Jan 21 1817 in Singsby at Hjerpe farm no 2 and his wife Anna Chatarina Abrahamsdotter Liten b.June 21 1817 at Liten farm in Singsby.
Mother of these children Maria Sofia Simonsdotter Tölix b.Dec 14 1844 in Tölby,Korsholm was the daughter of Simon Eric Johansson Tölix b.Aug 19 1820 In Tölby and his wife Ulrika Johan Eriksdotter Göök b.Nov 5 1819 in Vikby.
Vikby is the village were my wife Marlene is born and the Göök house was right next to her parents house, the house was turned down in the late 1980. I have seen a picture of two sisters Göök in front of the house,dont know the connection between these Göök people but they were for sure related.

I have Hjerpe in my family tree too, my grandpas brother Albert Back was married to an Ulrika Benjaminsson Hjerpe b.July 27 1884 in Singsby so i guess there is a connection but i have not researched this line yet.

Hope this help you a little bit.

Christer,
Thank you so much. What a wealth of information. Now only to prove this Ulrika and her family are definitely my Ulrika.
Denise, got your email. It would appear the Herman you sent is not the Herman on the list of Ulrika's siblings. He was born in Söderudden, Replot. But he could be a relative. I'll keep him in my files. Thanks.

Christer,
I looked on HISKI and found many of the people you gave me. They have last name of Maria Sofia Simonsdotter as Fölix, not Tölix. There were no Tölix in the database in Korsholm, but lots of Fölix. Found marriage dates for Maria's parents, Karl's parents, Ulrika Göök's and Herman Israelsson's parents.
Just shows one door opens another. Thanks again, Karen

Hi Karen
Tölix is the right name,also spelled Thölix,it looks like the one that transcribed into HISKi misspelled it.

Christer,
It would appear that the Ulrika you found is the correct one. I heard from my cousin and Ulrika's father was Charley (Karl) and mother Sofia (Maria Sofia) Thank you so much for all your help. I have sent for the marriage license of Ulrika and John Forslund. It should verify her parentage. Thanks.

Hi Karen
I will take a look at the Ulrika Hjerpe that was in my familytree later on, want to see what kind of connection there is.I just found a Liten from Singsby in my familytree too, well she was born 1767 so thats far away but perhaps there is another connection.My boatneighbour down at the harbour is a Hjerpe from Singsby too, have to ask him if hi knows something about his ancestors.

Christer,
I have since heard from Paul Ström in Kvevlax with an answer to my query about Ulrika. Indeed the Ulrika you found is the correct one. He has her family back to 1550 and will share his info. I am sending him what I have on the family here in the States. Thank you so much for all your help. Karen

Hi Karen
I promised you to check the connection between your Ulrika Hjerpe and the Ulrika Hjerpe that was in my family tree. This was easy, Ulrika Hermansson´s b.17.5.1879 father Karl Hermansson Hjerppe had a brother Benjamin Hermansson Hjerpe who married Erika Isaksdotter Dahl in Singsby and they had a daughter Ulrika Benjaminsson Hjerpe b.27.7.1884 who married my granpas brother Albert Back from Iskmo.
So the both Ulrika were cousins.This will probably not make us relatives Karen but close enough.
If your great uncle had descendants they have at least a dozen of relatives overhere that i know.

Christer,
Yes indeed my great-uncle Johan(John) and Ulrika had descendants. I am passing all this along to my cousins Dick and Kay, his surviving grandchildren. There are also great and great-great grandchildren. They are so thankful for what all of you have found, as am I. Karen
