21-11-10, 08:35
I am searching for descendents to Anna Alice Stenbäck, b Thomasfolk 23.6.1900 in Kalax, Närpes, Finland. She was a daughter of Karl Oskar Thomasfolk / Stenbäck (1874 - 1928) and his 1st wife Klara Sofia Skomars (1874 - 1903). Anna Alice emigrated to the States 1921 and based on not confirmed information married to a Swede.

Appreciate receiving any information that might help me continuing my research.

Here is the ships manifests for Anna Alice. She travelled under Thomasfolk. I found both her arrival to NY and her departure from Gothenburg, Sweden. I'll see if I can find anything in NY. She was bound for an uncle Josef Roos in the Bronx. This is from Ancestry.com

I think this may be Anna. I searched Italian Genealogical Group, who has marraige records searchable on-line for NY, all, not just Italian. I found an Anna Stenbeck who married a Walter Sjogren Oct 4,1927 certificate #30956 Manhattan. I searched under Thomasfolk with no hits, then tried Stenback (Soundex) and found it. Copy is available for payment at this website, http://www.nyc.gov/htm/records/pdf/8marfrm.pdf. You can download a request form. I followed this trail and found her returning from Finland with two children after a visit to Kalax/Kalaks. I then traced the family to the 1930census. If you think it might be a match, it might be worth it to get the marraige license at 15.00 a copy.

Thank you very much. It is definitely the correct Anna. It is confirmed by the information that she visited year 1933 her sister Signe in Kalax, Finland.

Based on other information recieved from you I have been able to trace that Annas son Walter Roland was borned twin on the 8th of July 1928 and died 1998 in Palm Beach, Florida. In the death certificate Walter was named Sjogren Sr => he has a son with the name Walter.

You're very welcome. Walter R Sjogren died 18 Jul 1998 in Jupiter, Palm Beach county, FL. I've been trying to find an obituary which could give clues to sister Iris Louise. No luck so far.

I requested a look-up from Ask A Librarian in Palm Beach for a possible obit for Walter. They couldn't find one, but sent me a copy of the death record and a paper he had to sign when he moved from NJ into FL in 1990. Says previous residence was E. Hanover and Bridgeton, NJ, wife Jane Barberi Sjogren and that he was a self employed business owner. It incorrectly has his father's first name as Maurice Sjogren, unless his father used a second name. Mauritz is a possibility. I will attempt to attach. They also note he is buried in Restland Memorial Park in NJ and suggested looking for an obit there.

I am Anna Alice Stenbeck's granddaughter, Kirsten Sjogren Ammeen. My father was Walter Sjogren, Sr., who passed away in 1998. Anna died shortly before her 100th birthday just after my father.
Let me know how I can help you---and more curiously, why you are searching for info on Anna.

Hi, Is there any possibility that Anna Alice Stenbäck may be related to the Rev. Kaarle Emil Stenbäck (1834-1919). He was born in Alavus, Finland and was a member of the Diet, like his father before him.

Kaarle Emil Stenbäck (1834-1919) is not related to Anna Alice Stenbäck

23-03-11, 17:28
Kirsten, we have common roots.

Have you noticed that a member (Anna Alice's great granddaughter) has commented directly to your profile?

Hi Again-
I am very interested in the genealogy of Anna Stenbeck and my father, Walter Sjogren. If I can help you please let me know.
My father, Walter, married and had 5 children. We are all still living.
His sister, Iris, married and now has the name Iris Sweeney. She had three sons, 2 are living in NJ.
When I was a child I did a family tree and interviewed my grandmother Anna...your work is much better!
