Looking for records for the 1600's in Tornio. We have five generations of Sten's in Tornio/Tornea. I am looking for the father of Samuel Errsson Sten born 1690. Samuel was married to Brita Michaelsdotter Holm born 1699, and married in 1723. Samuel's father was Erik. They were Landsurveyors, chemists, goldsmiths. My grandfather Ossian Sten b.1896, Ylieska, was the first of the family to immigrate to the USA. He came into Ellis Island as a crew member at the age of 16 yrs.
