View Full Version : Help me find ancestors to Gustaf Adolf Eliel Sjöström b. oct. 21 1827 in Somero

My great-grandfather got married to Greta Kaisa Andersdotter at Kungsö, Jomala, Åland.
He also died there in 1867. The church book for his birth is said to have burned but he might have lived in the village of Kaskisto, Somero.

I'm looking for his parents, siblings and ancestors. Maybe someone has him in their family tree? Is there any finnish persons that can help me?

Thank you

Hi Ingemar!

I must thank you so much for what you have done to help me find Gustaf Adofs parents and siblings, and so fast too!

I have been many times in http.//www.sukuhistoria.fi to find my ancestors from Åland and even tried to find Gustaf Adolf, but gave it up as I didn't understrand where I was in the books or places, so you helped me very much, Thank you. I love the sukuhistoria.fi and will go in there to have a further look around. Had it not been for them I wouldn't have found any of my ancestors from Åland either. A wonderful website. I live in Norway, talk the language and understand a lot of swedish but wrote in English, just in case. Sonja
