On one of my ancestors Naturalization papers from Washington, it states he was from Savalina or Sananlima Finland and his wife was born in Kyra, Finland. What are the actual names??? I cannot find these misspelled places. If someone would possibly translate and correct for me, it would be greatly appreciated.:confused:

Savanlina probably means Savonlinna, ie. Nyslott in Swedish. "Kyra" - perhaps "Kyrö" or "Kyro" in Swedish.
