(I am still trying to find the birth in Finland and the right person to the Herman Matson who died 8 Apr 1923 in Pennsylvania, USA. (Married to Mary Jarvi, trees at Ancestry)

This candidate was born in Saarijärvi, to the father Tp Matts Mattsson and wife Maria Lena Ersdotter. Unfortunately I am not able to find them in either Communion Book or Preconfirmation Records. I can only find the Birth note. Not a trace of them living somewhere. Can someone please help me?

I wonder if the names of Herman's parents were recorded wrong in the birth record; as was the age of his mother (41)?

Saarijärvi Preconfirmaton Records, 1860-1873, Kukko 0, Pahkamäki: Children born to Matts Johansson and Maria Mattsdr (born 1830), including Herman, born 24.2.1865. I don't see any Herman born 24.2.1865, so maybe the date was also recorded incorrectly in this record? http://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/kirjat/Kirkonkirjat/saarijarvi/lastenkirja_1860-1873_mko109-122/129.htm

Saarijärvi Communion Book, 1860-1873, same farm (first 2 names): http://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/kirjat/Kirkonkirjat/saarijarvi/rippikirja_1860-1873_mko50-65/232.htm
