I have a new request for help as follows:

Karl Edvard Hermansson Klockars (Munk), b. 2 Nov 1869/70, Höstves, Korsholm, d. 17 Sep 1913 in an accident in the US, leaving a wife and 5 children. Came to the US 1896. I tried looking in Hiski, but Korsholm records don't include 1869. The family would like to know more about Karl Edvard and his ancestors.

Would appreciate any information.

Mantalslängd for 1880 (http://digi.narc.fi/digi/view.ka?kuid=630532) is also too early to list him by name, but one option may be Herman Israelsson b. 1826 and wife Maria b. 1828, having a listed daughter Tilda 1863 and three unlisted sons and a daughter. Herman Israelsson is murare in ML 1870 (http://digi.narc.fi/digi/view.ka?kuid=623137) and 1865 (http://digi.narc.fi/digi/view.ka?kuid=618771). He's possibly born at Klockars.
But there's also medåbo Herman Gabrielsson Munk (died between 1865 and 1870) with three sons and a daughter :confused:

Hopefully someone knows better, as this sounds more like guessing.

Hi June,

The names Klockars and Munk sounded very familiar to me so I did a "Search" of both names on Finlander. I had some success with the "Munk" name. A "wsanman" - Wayne Sanman - had made an inquiry about this name in 2007. There were several different responses - too many to post again here. This is part of a response I found on Post #9:

"I’m still researching my great grandfather Carl Edvard Sanman who was born Karl Edvard Klockars prior to leaving Höstves Village to emigrate to the USA. Some of you have heard this all before but, the puzzle I have been trying to solve is that he married in Portland, Oregon a woman named Emily Berg, whose father was John (or Johan) Munk according to the marriage record. A passenger list I found indicates that prior to her marriage and move to Portland she lived with her sister Sofia Berg in Chicago. So, now I am unsure what my great grandmother Emily’s (Amelia/Emelia) real surname was. Once I determine that, I’d like to find her ancestors and other relatives.

Good news! I think I found a clue on this website….


My great grandfather is mentioned in several places, and the name Munk and Berg are all over this document of emigrants to the US on this website, including “Munk” right after this name. # Karl Edvard Johan Henriksson Klockars, inhysing på Munk, f. 16.3.1859, till Sverige

Alas, I don’t speak Swedish so maybe someone will look over this list for Karl Edvard Klockars and all of the Munks and Bergs and figure out the connection to solve my puzzle. I did notice a Maria Sofia Berg which maybe Amelia’s sister Sofia Berg? I think the answer is here.

Can anyone help? Sincerely, Wayne Sanman"

Below this posting by Wayne is a short translation of the Sydaby site by Hasse.

Hope you find some tidbits here that may help...

HI Karen,

Yes, I remember working with Wayne Sanman on his research. I looked through his data, but didn't find any Hermansson Klockars. I wrote to Wayne anyway and asked him about this. He offered to look through the rest of his data to see if he could find something. We think there has to be a link somewhere because of the Munk/Munck name. I have a relative in Malax with Klockars names, but he didn't feel there was a link to the Korsholm Klockars.
