Looking for information about this Johan/John. Born 29 sep 1890 in Sundom, Finland. Emigrated in 1929 to USA and died 20 Sep 1947 in Manhattan, New York, USA.

Best regards Johan

Welcome Johan,
What sort of information do you seek and how much do you already know about this person? That helps avoid unnecessary searches for something you already know.

Johan,
From Ancestry.com, it appears that Johan EDWARD Sundolm made many trips back and forth to US and Canada. There are several family trees on TALKO showing his family in Finland, but none showing his children or wife ever being in US. There are 7 listed, 2 died as children, 3 are identified by initials only. Wife Anna Elisabeth Karlsdotter Steffans died in Finland, daughter Agnes 1913-5 Jun 2001 Borås, Sweden and Elvira 20 Feb 1921-5 Oct 2001 Sundom. None of the trees show cause of death. Perhaps one of the owners of those trees can help if they see this post.

A copy of Edward Sundholm's death certificate can be purchased from NYC Dept of Records for a 15.00 fee. It is certificate 20686, Manhattan, 20 Sept 1947. It should show the cause of death and disposition of his body.

Here's one of several arrivals for Edvard Sundholm. Note he says he was in Canada in 1910 and returned to Finland.

Johan,
Just a thought, is the family sure of that 1947 death date? There was at least one other Edward Sundholm born about the same time, but from Sweden. He too died in NY but in 1949. I couldn't find any Johan or John Sundholm who died 1947 anywhere.
