Hi Chuck -
I would be interested in more information about Anna Sofia Nylund - do you know who her parents were? How about her grandparents?

Thanks very much -

Hi Debbie,
I am afraid I cannot help on that but I will give the information I copied from the microfilm:
Husband: John Nylund, b: Aug 12, 1881 in Kortesjärvi. He emigrated from Finland in 1899.
Anna was confirmed Mar 5, 1901 and the marital data is already posted. In the remarks column for the family and it might have been directed to the husband was this term: "kapakotsin" [spelling might be off somewhat]

OK, this and what was on the original posting is the full extent of the information from the membership roll. Hopefully this will allow people in Finland to come up with the parent info. If you wish, I can get the vitals about the 4 children next time I am at Swenson which is likely to be tomorrow:)

Thanks Chuck! From what you've said, it looks like Anna Sofia is not one of "my" Nylunds, since her husband was not born in Oravais. But thank you for the information, anyway! Appreciate your help!
