Hi
My grandfather John [Karlsson] Thors visited a cousin in Michigan sometime in early 1940s. I think. (not in my memory) There was a John Thors living in Bessemer MI who was born in Solf, b. Sept 1861. He married Ulrika Jfs of Vr. I'm wondering if he could be a cousin of mine. I've checked in Talko, Finland's Family History Ass'n, and in my book about Rimal, Solf. Can't make the two families connect.

Does anyone out there have info on that family? I've checked in Talko, Finland's Family History Ass'n, and in my book about Rimal, Solf. Can't make the two families connect.

Syrene,

Have you checked with Torbjrn Nikus... he has both of those people in his database on Talko.. and he may have other info. that isn't on Talko.

It sure looks like it could be! I couldn't find access to the correct years in Finland's Family History Ass'n site. From the age of the children born in the USA, I think Johan and Ulrika Jfs married in the US after they emigrated.

Now all I have to do is track Johan Zachrisson Thors back through ancestors until I can track down through time to Johannes Karlsson Thors who is my maternal gather.

I have one photo of the two of them during the trip, holding up a catch probably of trout, and smiling broadly!

Thanks so much!
mvh

Syrene,
On FamilySearch.org, there is born Solf, Johannes Zachrisson Thors, father Zacharias Isaksson, mother Maria Wilhelmima. There is also born Solf, Karl Johan Karlsson Thors, father Karl Isaksson , mother Fredrika. Could possibly the tie be that their fathers were brothers?

that's what I'm hoping to find out. Thanks! I'll look into FamilySearch as well.
