I am looking for information on my maternal grandfather's brother, Erik Vilhelm Isaksson Backlund, b. Oct. 12, 1875 in Pelat, Munsala, Vasa, Finland. His father's name was Isak Karlsson Backlund b. Dec. 18, 1835 and his mother was Brita Greta Eriksdotter Ryss b. July 20, 1839. My grandfather changed his name when he came to the United States but I do not know if Erik also came to the USA and changed his name or anything else about him.
