View Full Version : looking for my great-grandfather's ancestors

I am looking for my great-grandfather's ancestors. Frantz Richard Valmann was born 02.06.1875 in Aabo län, Laviana parish in Finland. He moved to Norway, Alta (That note states that he brought a certificate from the parish priest in Tampere) and got married there.
His father was Karl Gustav Valmann
That's all the information I have found.

Here's his birth record in Lavia (6 Feb 1875): http://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/kirjat/Kirkonkirjat/lavia/syntyneet_1874-1883_mko34-41/18.htm

Father's place of birth (http://hiski.genealogia.fi/hiski?en+t1568239) is Hämeenkyrö (sw Tavastkyro), all others born in Lavia.

Here they are in Hämeenkyrö: http://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/kirjat/Kirkonkirjat/hameenkyro/rippikirja_1829-1839_mko91-110/300.htm
Father's birth date may be incorrect (copying error at some stage), as no match found, but mother was born in Mouhijärvi on 9 May 1802 (http://hiski.genealogia.fi/hiski?en+t4952276). Marriage on 20 Dec 1829 (http://hiski.genealogia.fi/hiski?en+t4959173).
Frans Richard serves as a farm hand in two farms in Lavia and moves 10 Nov 1894 to Mouhijärvi. Last appearance in Lavia on SSHY(FFHA) member pages: http://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/sivut/jasenille/paikat.php?bid=15567&pnum=431
Mouhijärvi records of the time are not yet online.
