Söker föräldrar till Österholm Greta född ca 1865.

En jungfru Greta (S?) Österholm, 23 år, dotter Erika 11 mån reste tillsammans med Johan August Engblom (36 år) och hans hu Katarina Sofia (33 år) från Göteborg till Hull, England 25 maj 1888. Resemål Wahoo, Nebraska. Dessa personer anlände till New York 13 juni 1988. Makarna Engblom + en son John är år 1900 bosatta i Nebraska.

Greta och hennes dotter har tillsvidare icke hittats i USA. Var föddes Greta? Är hennes rötter från Österholm i Saltvik? Har icke lyckats hitta henne i HisKi.

Hi Mikael,
The Provincial Archives in Mariehamn, Åland, has the Borough Administrator's Archive of the Åland Islands. In the series I:1Ba 1 there are "List of issued passports 1882-1903" See http://www.genealogia.fi/emi/magistrat/indaxe.htm

and also :
The farmer Joh Aug Engblom and his wife Katarina Sofia (Henriksdotter) from Hummersö Föglö, issued date 15.5 1888. The
communion book 1881-1890 p 143 in Föglö recording Katarina Sofia as Mattsdotter born 28 Oct 1855 in Närpes.

The additional book for "foreign church members in Föglö" showing that Greta Stina Isaksdtr Österholm from Petalax got a daughter Erika Kristina born 29/8 1886 and baptized 5/9 1886 and sponsors were Johan August Engblom and his wife Katarina, and farmhand Johannes Jansson and maid Ida Wilhelmina Mattsson ( She was also from Närpes born 30/8 1859)

Hi Ingmar,
Thanks for the provided information that confirms that Greta Österholm was not a member of the family Österholm from Saltvik.

With referens to HisKi the name of Katarina Sofia Mattsdotters parents were farmer Matts Eriksson Aspnäs and his wife Klara Sofia Eriksdotter, Överträsk, Närpes.

Regars,
Mikael
