I am helping someone find her grandmother Hilda Lovisa Tuuf, b. 17 Apr 1878, Malax, d. 21 Aug 1919. She married Johan Alfred Mickelsson Möller, b. 1880 in Kronoby. Johan moved from Kronoby to Esse Baptist Church in 1903. They had a daughter Hildur Amalia, b. 1904, Kållby. I haven't been able to find Hildur's birth record in Pedersöre. And I haven't found a marriage record for Hilda and Johan. Does anyone have information about any of these people?

Johan Alfred Möller worked as a police in Karleby. His son from a second marriage, Michael Möller, lives still in Karleby.
I can ask Michael questions, or his daughter Sari who is my good friend.

Yes, Johan Alfred was a policeman in Karleby. When his wife Hilda died, he remarried to Elisabet Wirkkala from Kaustby. I have not been able to find her in the Wirkkala family. And I haven't been able to find anything about Hilda Tuuf - could the reason be that she was a Baptist? HisKi doesn't have Malax records for 1878. And I could not find any record of the birth of the daughter Hildur, b. 1904 in Kållby. Maybe Baptist church records aren't published? It would be appreciated if you could find something.

Also, Hilda Lovisa Tuuf had a brother who moved to New Zealand in 1900 and lived in Dunedin until he died in 1939. Is there any way to find out about his family there?

In connection with my previous messages: Johan Alfred Mickelsson Möller had a sister Edla Sofia, b. 20 Dec 1879 in Kronoby, d. 1 Jan 1968 - maybe in the US? She married in Kronoby 1900 to Johan Edward Mattsson Libäck, b. 14 Feb 1976, and died 6 Nov 1955 in America. They went to America and they had children, but I don't have any info. about them. And we don't know where the family lived in the US. I can get a photo of the family, if needed.

Any information about them would be appreciated.

Thank you, Hasse. It looks like there could be living relatives somewhere. Here is the wedding photo of Johan Alfred Möller and Hilda Lovisa Tuuf. Not known when or where it was taken.
