If you hawe some ideas where to find Edvins parents ower there, please tell me?
Best regards from a rainy Vasa! (Sorry for my bad English).

You can see by this posting that I have an ancestor by the same surname.

I've not found out anything about them yet.

I know he came to the USA, but I have no idea what happened after that. Perhaps his children headed back to Finland.

I asked him if he had any information at all about the family. He said no, but that the name could also have been Röj at one time. I have a lot of Röj names from Malax, but nothing matches.

June and Ilmari:

I am unfamiliar with the name "Edvin Rönn," but I also have the Rönn surname in my family tree.

My great-grandmother was Katariina Lovisa Rönn of Korsholm. Five of her 9 children emigrated to Dollar Bay, Michigan in the early 1900s. This area was also like a second "home" to a lot of Swedes/Swede-Finns from Portom. So, I wonder if Edvin might have gone there. I plan to be at the State Library of Michigan sometime this week. I will check the City Directories for an "Edvin" Rönn.

Thanks, Karen. It's like looking for a needle in a haystack. Åke in Finland said he doesn't know anything more about the family, other than what I posted. I have a couple Rönn names in my database from Korsholm and Vörå.

I know a fellow, Frank.

I think his last name is Rönnqvist.

He used to live in Jakobstad.
