I am looking for information on my great grandmother Helena Mattsdotter, born about 1854-1860 at Storbacka farm Purmo. She married my great grandfather Matts Johansson Finstrom born 29 Feb. 1860 at finnabba farm Purmo. They married 10 Sept. 1880 in Purmo. She died before 1891 when my great grandfather came to America.

Here's what I found in Purmo records - these people possibly are your ancestors:

Marriage of Matts Johansson Finnström and Lena Mattsdotter Storbacka:

10.9.1880 Finnabba Bd.S. Matts Johansson Inh. Lena Mattsdr Storbacka

Marriage of widower Matts Andersson Storbacka and Greta Eliasdotter Säksjärvi on Sep 1848:

Birth record of Greta Eliasdotter in Säksjärvi to Elias Jacobsson and Magdalena Johansdotter, age 40:
30.11.1820 3.12.1820 Sexjerf Trp. Elias Jacobsson Magdalena Johansdr 40 Gretha

Could be marriage of Elias Jacobsson 8 Nov 1804 to Magdalena Johansdotter:

Could be birth record of Elias Jacobsson - only Elias born in this time period:

Possible marriage record of Jacob Mattsson Slip and Elisabet Eliasdotter:

Purmo records begin in 1775, so couldn't track farther back.

Hi Cousin Bud,
See you made it. Hope these good people can help you. Bud and I are second cousins and have been exchanging info but we're stalled with Helena other than what I had found earlier. Karen

Thanks so very much for the information. Thats a lot more than I thought could be found in a short period of time.
I'm working on my gedcom like you suggested. The first one I produced from Family Tree Maker was so large, I thought there was too much information in it.

Bud,

I don't think a GedCom can ever be too large. Some people have over 100,000 names in their database and they can include them in a GedCom.

Purmo records begin in 1775, so couldn't track farther back.
Purmo was part of Pedersöre before 1775.
This may be the Elisabet Eliasdotter in Pedersöre births:
2.1.1751 3.1.1751 Öfvr.Purmå Slip Elias Matzon Sophia Andersdr. Lisa
Mother's age remarks for her children vary very much, and the death age 35 on 29.12.1794 doesn't quite match. For marriage in 1775 that's too low anyhow.

Maybe that all is already too much based on HisKi database alone :(

Does anyone know the parish address for Purmo? Am thinking that maybe writing to them for information about that marriage in 1880. Would it contain the date of birth of the bride or at least her age? Do we have any members in Purmo parish? Any help appreciated. Karen

Heard from Ulla Storbjörk in Finland today. Lena Mattsdotter Storbacka was born 05.10.1854 in Nykarleby. I take it this is 5 Oct 1854. Karen

The parents were correct. I have an email from the Nykarleby församling reguarding Lena Mattsdotter which gives her date of birth as 05.10.1854 and gives the parents as STORMÅNS Matts Andersson born 12.07.1810 and SÄKSJÄRVI Greta Eliaedotter born 30.11.1820. The birth recorded on HisKi (event number 5347 in Purmo) is for the first Lena born. She died 1.04.1851 at 1 year and 3 months. No births recorded in HisKi after 1851 in Purmo.
