Tracey,
Do you have abit more info about your grandfather? I found his death on Ancestry in the British Columbia Death Index 1872-1979. Carl Oscar Johnson age 79, died 27 Jul 1966, residence: Kamloops. Reg # 1966-09-010265, bca # B13278, gsu # 2033854. I might be able to find him in Kristinestad on FFHA if I had a location within Kristinestad. The Rippi go to 1902 on that site. What exactly are you looking for?

Tracey,
I searched the entire Rippi from 1897-1902 for Kristinestad for Karl Oskar (as it would have been spelled at that time) and only found 2, both not born 1887 and one died as an child. Unfortunately, FFHA only has Rippi for the needed years, no births. Hiski doesn't go far enough.

Tracey,
I searched the Kristinestad Rippikirja for 1883-1892 and found only one Carl Oskar born 1887. Strangely, his father is Carl Henrik Bergholm, mother looks like Mathilda Lillstrom? This is in Påskmark by, No 1 Yrjäns. If this is the correct one, I don't know why he chose the surname Johnson. His DOB is 26 Dec 1887.

Found the arrival of a Carl O Bergholm 1913. Going to Munising, MI. This appears to be the same one born 1887 in Kristinestad. See line 25.

Tracey,
It would have helped alot if you had posted his known birthday of March 11, 1887 to start with. Always post as much of known info as it helps in searching and saves time in ruling things out. I'll keep looking.
