Please can anyone help me read a name on the attachment please. If you scroll down to number 28, 29 and 30, you will see the names of Einar Jokinen, his wife Sigrid and their daughter whose name is.......?
I just can't make it out. It looks like Judith but then it doesn't look like Judith.
Any ideas please? Many thanks.

Hi,
I think it is Juudith, written with two us. A Finn would pronounce the name something like Yuudit.

Thank you Merja, I didn't think about the double u. I just found her again on Ancestry and her name is spelt Jundith :D . Must be a spelling mistake.
Juudith sounds much more likely! :)
