Hello,

I'm trying to see if anyone has information on persons that would be the ancestors of my mother's sister's family. My grandmother had two marriages due to her first husband (my grandfather) being injured in a logging accident.

The following information is the only information that I have, and it could have flaws particularly beginning in the 5th generation.


THIRD GENERATION
1. George Rudolph MATTSON: born on 6 Mar 1884 in Brush Prairie, Washington; married on 26 Feb 1929 in Vancouver, Washington; died on 01 Dec 1941 in Brush Prairie, Washington

FOURTH GENERATION
2. John Erik Mattsson MATTSON: born on 28 Nov 1842 in Åland Islands, Finland; died 4 Jul 1912 Vancouver, Washington

3. Emma Erika Johansdotter: born on 11 Dec 1850 in Sodersunda, Åland Islands, Finland; died 12 Apr 1888 Brush Prairie, Washington

FIFTH GENERATION

4. Matts CARLSSON: born on 12 Mar 1796 in Åland Islands, Finland; died 8 Oct 1859 in Åland Islands, Finland

5. Greta-Stina Mattsdotter: born on 16 Mar 1799; died Bjorstrams Village, Finstrains Parish, Åland Islands, Finland

6. Johan unknown or possibly Erik Magnus EKLUND: born 11 Oct 1821 Sodersunda, Åland Islands, Finland

7. Emma Emelia (Sofia?) PALEN: born on 12 Mar 1830 in Sodersunda, Åland Islands, Finland:)

If Ingemar Ekman is home reading his mail, he may see this. He's our Åland expert.

Hello Ilmari,
This appears to be your John Erik Mattson, Jormala parish, on Hiski, but it looks like it should be 'Eric Johan' Mattson.

Hi Ilmari,
I had no information in my family file or other records regarding your ancestors and it will take probably more than a month until I plan to visit the province archive in Mariehamn next time. I asked Ben-Eric Pahlman in Mariehamn. He is a retired sea captain and big genealogist. He had a lot of information about your ancestors and your relatives and sent me some files in Swedish. I made a short translation, except for the death causes in the attached rtf - file. If you want to come in contact with now living relatives in Åland, I suggest you to put a query in the guest book at Åland Island´s Emigrant Institute at www.eminst.net
Best Regards,
Ingemar

Ingemar,

Thank you so much for this information. I can understand a little Swedish, so it shouldn't be a big deal.

Just to be clear... George Mattson was my "step"-grandfather, I am trying to put this information for my cousins that live here in the Vancouver, WA area. They have the same grandmother as I do (Gerda Granlund-Hill-Mattson), but are descendants from George, and I am a descendant from August Eli (Ilmarinen) Hill. Tack så mycket - Ilmari:)
