I am wondering if anyone has proof of the birth year of Kirsti or Chirstin Mattsdotter Nelimarkka. I have her born 1592 in Alajärvi, Nelimarkka and dying 25 Jun 1693. That would have her at least 100 years depending on when in 1592 she was born. I see many Nelimarkka on Talko, but only two other entries for her, all with the 1592 date. Any hope of finding it or too far back? Karen

Hi Karen,

The birth year is based on age given in her burial record - it says "öfwer 100 åhr", i.e. over 100 years.
That may not be reality, but there's nothing to prove either way :confused:

Thanks so much Jaska. I knew someone would come through. If the burial record made mention of that fact, I will leave my entry as is. I know it's certainly possible, but not the norm, especially for that time. Must be our healthy Finn genes. Karen

Hi, Just wondering, are you descended from the Nelimarkka family ? As far as I have been able to determine, my great Grandmother was a Nelimarkka . I have a LOT of info on the surname which I recieved from Finland etc. Maybe there is something I can help you with if they are the same families..?

I am not directly decended from the Nelimarkka line. My connection is through a much more recent marriage into the family. Karen
