Looking for parents of Johan Gustaf Adamsson b 8.8.1844 Lammi Parish in Käntä-Häme.

I found him in the communion records (1859-68 TK 167-68 Kuva, 143, 146, 815, 615 and 229) living in the village of Jahkula on the farm Rekula or surrounding. The torp listed above him is Adam Adamsson and I suspect this is his father but Hiski and SSHY doesn't have the births for Lammi in 1844.

I've tried IGI and no luck there either. Hoping someone may have the birth or childrens communion records for Lammi and can give me more info on him. If not I'll have to travel to the nearest FHC and view the rolls, but it's a little of a distance away.

If Adam Adamsson is his father then I have Adam Adamsson's ancestry back 3 more generations (just in case).

Any help appreciated

Adam Adamsson b. 15.4.1822 and Hedda Johansdotter b. 1811 were married on 11.12.1853 (http://hiski.genealogia.fi/hiski?en+t4221336).
They appear on 1849-1858 communion book on page 169 (kuva 179 (http://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/kirjat/Kirkonkirjat/lammi/rippikirja_1849-1858_tk165-166/179.htm)), with no children listed. I think Johan Gustaf does not belong to that family in any way, and his appearance as a farm hand in the same farm at one time is only coincidental.
Adam seems to be very common male name used in Lammi at the time. So there are many patronymic names Adamsson and Adamsdotter.

Happy searching!

Hi,
The patronymic Adamsson/Adamsdotter is also used in some parishes for children whose father is unknown, meaning illegitimate children. You might want to keep this option in mind if you have difficulty in finding the parents.

Jaska and Merja,

I thought that as well but being this is his frist appearance at age 16 I still have to wonder. I had already found the marriage of Adam Adamsn to Hedda Johansdr in 1853 so I knew at least Hedda was not his mother. I also searched for any marriage in the 1840 timeframe then compared those to female deaths to see if possibly Adam Adamsn was married previously, I could not correlate any other wives to him. I also tracked back through the Rippikirja to see if he was listed with any other wives and couldn't find any either. Lastly looking at Adam Adamsson ancestry I could not find any Johans or Gustafs indicating that these names where not common in his family. So it's beginning to look like Johan Gustaf more than likely is the son of somone else.

Thanks for the tips.
