June and I are trying to find this person who married Anders Andersson Wester, Anders was born 8 Nov 1859 in Solf to Anders Israelsson Wester or Hellman and Maja Lisa Isaksdotter Hellman. I have searched Solf and Korsholm, records found both places depending on year.

Charlotta Wilhelmina Holm
I have not found this person and do not know where she was born. Anders Andersson Wester moved from Munsmo to Vasa about 1883 and married Wilhelmina in 1886. After 1890 they used the family name Backman and in 1895 the family, including three children, was registered as Baptists, and after that I lost the thread.

Anders had a brother Johan Wester, born Oct. 31, 1840 in Munsmo (at that time a village in Korsholm) who also moved to Vasa and from there to Minnesota. Do you know anything about him and his family?

Thank you, Stefan. I did find some of those today, but the birth of Johan confirms what we found on Hiski as his possible parents. I found the Holm family on a later rippi with more children. This is the 1857-1864 rippi.
