View Full Version : Matti Matinpoika Palo/Fors 1754 Ilmajoki

Hi Forum,
I am seeking the paternal ancestors of Matti Fors born 27 Aug 1754 Palo farm. He died 05 Jan 1834 in Isokyrö, Orismala, Monola, Finland.
I've tried Hiski and was told the info was wrong (I had Matt Simonson Alacoko as his father)
Does anyone know? I've also tried SukuRaitti with no luck.
Thanks for any suggestions,

Hi, I have Palo surnames in my family but don't know if they would be connected. Have you tried just using the surname or just the name of the farm or village without any other info ? I've found things that way quite often. It seems like sometimes being too specific limits the returns you get. Just a couple ideas. Good Luck, Karen

There are a lot of boys named Matthias, born 1754-55 in Isokyrö, but only two from Palo:

Matthias, b. 2 Feb 1755, Palo, to soldier Erik Brenner and Lisa Carlsdotter
Matthias, b. 16 Sep 1755, Palo, to Matts Pendala and Maria Johansdotter

There is a death record for widower Matts Mattsson from Monola farm, d. 5 Jan 1834 , died of old age at 79. He evidently had something to do with Reinilä which appears in parens after his name. The Fors name doesn't appear there - maybe it was acquired later.

Thank you both and congratulations June, a most deserved honor!

After a little more research, could this be correct?
