Hi,
I'm helping a lady with Swedish and Finnish parents try to find out more about her gfather, Saulus Sandström. He was born in Estonia in 1879, emigrated across the China Sea according to family tradition, must have landed somewhere on the west coast of the US, met and married her gmother at the Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition in 1909. had a daughter, Elisabeth, born Seattle 1910. He died in a fishing accident off of Astoria Oregon 1921.

Does anyone know of Estonian birth records accessible via Internet? Does anyone know of San Francisco or Coos Bay or even Seattle port of entry immigration records on Internet? And I even live in Seattle.

Thanks! Syrene Forsman

Thanks for the URL. I worked a couple of hours. Found a number of Sandström entries, and discovered Saulus is also a possibility. will come back to it tomorrow. An interesting resource. Estonian Suumi is I assume the Finnish congregation, and Rootsi the Swedish.
