Hej!

I have been researching the part of my family from Sweden and Finland for about a year now. I have been able to track my great grandfather's family from Fagernäs in Larsmo back as far as the 1760's, and my great grandmother's family from Bäck in Purmo to the 1750's.

I am interested in the locations of some of the places where they lived. I cannot find Bäck on a map, nor Filpus, where her father was born. The church in Pedersöre can only tell me that these places were located in Nederpurmo.

Does anyone know of any maps that might show where these places were located?

This MapSite (http://kansalaisen.karttapaikka.fi/kartanhaku/osoitehaku.html?lang=en) is useful. Search by place name.
Here they are on opposite side of the hill: http://kansalaisen.karttapaikka.fi/karttalinkki/karttalinkki.html?e=298981&n=7049405&scale=8000&width=600&height=600&tool=siirra&lang=en
