I have a request for help in finding information about the ancestors of Anna Lovisa, b. 10 Apr 1868, Vörå, d. 8 May 1923, Puyallup, WA. She married 1891 in Michigan to Johan Mattsson Lassila - Mattson, b. 10 Apr 1871, Esse. It's possible her father was Mårten Mårtensson.

HisKi records for Vörå don't cover 1868. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

June,
I think this is your family. Not sure if the manifest is Johan Lassila's, but he's going to Michigan. Oddly enough, it's the same manifest as the Backlund's I found yesterday. I have not found the 1900 census yet. The first 3 children were born in MI and Hilda starts the WA births, so I figure they moved abt.1900-1901. There are 2 additional children on the 1920 census. Ester's not there, but she could be married by then. Note Victor Blomquist on the 1910, listed as nephew. Karen

June,
I found a Mårten Blomqvist in the 1870 records i Rekipeldo, Vörå on the Klemets farm.Says they have 2 boys, 1 girl. No names given. Hard to read wife's name. I'll look at the next year's record in 1875. Karen

Karen,

Thank you for all that good information. I'll pass it on to the family. It's more than they were expecting to find.
