I recently helped someone in the UK named Händelin who also had ancestors from Karleby. But I don't find any of your names in his ancestry. His Händelin line was from Hugo Drycksbäck, b. 1891, Karleby, through his son Johan Erik, b. 1927.

Hasse Andtbacka: Could this new query be connected to your Händelin data?

I think that is the family. I have the parents in my database - their daughter Maja-Lisa, b. 1845 married and her son took the name Enlund. Years ago I worked with someone about that family - but I don't have the rest of the children in my data. Matts Andersson also used the name Näsi and his wife was from the Porko family. I don't have anything more about the parents.

I have some data that may or may not be the Jön/John Händelin in the query.

I have Johan Mattsson Hannelin - Hannilä, b. 6 Dec 1842, Karleby, d. 21 Nov 1920, married 14 Nov 1866 to Sofia Henriksdotter Pettersson-Porko, b. 13 May 1842, d. 14 Feb. 1918. They had 6 children. Only one of them emigrated to the US: Daughter Maria Elisabet, b. 16 Aug 1881, d. 9 Apr 1915, USA. She had 3 children born in the US:
William Harald Hannelin, b. 14 Jul 1903; Milia Maria, b. 4 Jul 1906; Oskar Emil, b. 14 Oct 1908.

If this is the correct family, I can supply information about the parents and siblings of Johan Mattsson Hannelin. The other two names, William, b. 1861 and Jakat, b. ca 1866 don't appear in this Hannelin family.
