View Full Version : Nylund, Frans Leonard (Lennart) 1895-1973

This is my maternal grandfather. He was born September 18, 1895, possibly in Sideby or Lillsund. He married Adelina Hellman (see another thread), and they both lived in Låhlby, Lappfjärd, for the rest of their lifes. Frans Leonard died January 26, 1973.
I'm trying to find out where my grandfather was born, and who his parents were. I'll be thankful for any information, or tips where to find more info.

Best regards / Tony

One theory is that his ancestors are the Nylunds from Björneborg/Pori. One possible connection is Frans Viktor Nylund (b. December 19, 1833, in Inderö/Kyläsaari, Björneborg/Pori), who by way of Ulvsby/Ulvila moved to Träskvik, Lappfjärd/Lapväärtii February 17, 1860 <http://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/kirjat/Kirkonkirjat/lapvaartti/rippikirja_1860-1866_uk169/331.htm>. This could possibly be his grandfather, but the trace stops there, and I can't connect them.

Hi Tony. Best would be to contact the parish where he was last enrolled.
In this case, the Isojoki Assembly.
You can write to talouspäällikkö Irja Rinne, who is in charge also genealogy.

(If Albertina Samuelsdotter is your g-mothers as she links to Jalasjärvi and to my ancestors there.)
