In reviewing what we have to date, I keep finding a birth place in several records : Ytterjeppo Hilli, Finland.
Google will find Ytterjeppo, but what is the Hilli part?
Another is Jeppo Jungar Finland
Google will find Jeppo, but what is the Junger part?

Thank you

Bob

Jeppo (Swedish), Jepua (Finnish) = name of parish.
Villages within the parish are: Jungar, Lassila and Överjeppo.
Hilli probably was the name of the farm.
Ytter = outer
Över = upper
