I was happy to get the web site for the marriage. I guessed that they had married in 1915 but did not know where or when. It also provided me with my grandfathers middle name. Before all I had was the initial O. Now I know that the O stands for Oskar. I ordered a copy of the marriage certificate to add to the birth certificates I have obtained. Thanks once again.

When you receive the marriage data, if parents are given, let me know. I will search FFHA for info. I looked at Turku Pori and Bjornborg, but the only Frans Oskar Nordlund found born was 1887 and 1889. Having at least father would help.

From Björneborg church records
11.12.1887 18.12.1887 Kokemäensaari Mäkitalo Suutarin vävy Karl Nordlund vaimo Edla Maria 33 Frans Oskar Stefanus

The wrong year, but could it still be the same person? I would ask what Frans/Frank named his children. Often the same names are used from generation to generation.

I got the marriage certificate but Minnesota does not list father or mother on it. Dead end there. If you look at his WWI registration card does that state Turun as place of birth or what. Not sure what it said. Thought at first it was Luvia but looking at it more closely it might be Turun.

I think it's Turun. That's why I searched Turku-Pori and Björnborg.

Turun is the genetive of Turku (=Turku's province) And Luvia is in that distsrict. I know there were a lot of swedishspeaking people outside Pori/Björneborg, that joined the Swedish lutheran congregations as the emigrated and ofcourse not the finnsh speaking ones (due to the language) These records are at the Augustana archive. And because these congregations usually had pastors from Scandinavia they usually also kept very good and exact records similar to those they were used to back in Sweden or Finland. Those records helped me to find my relatives
