View Full Version : Karl Lax in Borga, Finland

03-08-08, 17:17
From a slakregister, I have the following information. KArl Magnus Lax's daughter by his second marriage, KArin LAx, is my great, great grandmother. Her name became KArin Carlsdotter or Lockes in America.(on her death certificate) She married Per Erick Soderlund Glans in Sweden. He became Peter Glantz in America.
I am looking for information about Karl LAx. He does not seem to be in records in Borga. I have tons of info on Soderlunds. Soderlund went through a change too, in America: Soderlund to Glans to Glantz. I have found info on children by KArl's 1st wife...but nothing about KArl's grandparents, parents, etc.
Thanks so much for any leads!
