Hello,
I found today at the Royal Library in Stockholm, old newspapers, published for Swedish speaking Finns in USA and they have the most of the newspapers on microfilm, at least Finska Amerikanaren 1906 - 1935, Norden, Brooklyn 1935-1961, Norden Melbourne 1897 -1940. I started to look at Finska Amerikanaren 1906 and found many interesting articles, death columns and obituaries (sorgeresolutioner). I asked the officer if they had any list of person indexe for these newspapers but she was not aware about that. If anybody knows of any indexes for these newspapers, I will be glad for information. However I will continue tomorrow to take copies that I find interesting.
Happy New Year 2004,
Ingemar

Hej Gita,
Thank you for your reply. I have been 2 days at the library in Stockholm and took copies of about twenty death columns of Ålanders in Finska Amerikanaren 1906 - 1909 and probably some of them are related to me. I am looking for an index to this newspaper but I have not find any. I have used the Swedish Emigrant Institute's database of death notices in the Swedish - American newspapers in Växjö (http://www.swemi.nu) and wondered if a similar index for F A exists.
Best Regards,
Ingemar

Hi Ingemar,
I read with interest your listing of the newspapers but the one you identify as "Norden Melbourne 1897 -1940" is a puzzlement.

Would that be for Melbourne, Florida? All of the other Melbourne towns in USA seem too small to have supported a newspaper for such a long time.

mvh,
Chuck Mäki

Hi Chuck,
Norden Melbourne 1897 -1940" is Melbourne in Australia. I checked the other day also some issues of this newspaper and it said it was the only newspaper in Australia for Scandinavia at that time. I found only articles mostly from Denmark and Norway but also a few from Sweden in the few issues I checked 1897-1902 but none from Finland, unfortunately.
Best Regards,
Ingemar
