Hello!
I'm searching for William Skytte-Tarvonen born in Terjšrv, Finland
in May 25th 1884.
He died in USA, probably in Washington as William Mattson in Aug. 8 1919.
He also had a brother Matts Joel Skytte-Tarvonen born Nov. 5 1879 and he went to Amerika in April 4 1900. He might have used the name Joe Matson in Amerika.
If anyone knows anything about them please let me know.

Hi, Karinh ----

In the TALKO data base, I find Matts Joel Tarvonen-Skytte, born 5 Nov. 1879, and his parents.

When you click on the father, you will find your William listed as Anders Villiam.

I'll send more if I find it.

Good luck.

P.S. to Karinh ---

As you appear to be a new member, perhaps you are not familiar with the TALKO database, which I just mentioned.

It is part of this site. I believe you can get full access to it through our moderator, Hasse NygŚrd.

All the best,

Hasse Andtbacka has these names in his database. Perhaps he will know more about them.

The parents were Matts Jakobsson Tarvonen-Skytte married to Anna Mattsdotter Skytte.

Matts Joel and Anders William were my wife's grandmother's (Anna Josefina Skytte) brothers. We are very interested in what happened to them in America.

Would you karinh please contact me privately on hasse.andtbacka*pp.kpnet.fi, I'll send you an ahnentafel for the brothers.

Here is a picture of Anders William Skytte with wife. The picture is taken in Martens, Centralia, Washington.

Hand written (in Swedish) on the back: Viljam Skytte with wife Sandra from Kaustby.

Thank you everybody that helped me on my quest in finding realtives to William and Alexandra Mattson (Skytte). I have now found one of their daughters, Sylvia, born 1 Aug. 1910. She is now 99 years old and lives in Florida near her daughter and her family. I have learned a bit of their story through her grandson Hans.
