View Full Version : Sophia Wickstrom

14-04-06, 03:03
I am looking for a Sophia Wickstrom who lived in Helsingfors in 1918. She was probably at least 50-55 at that time. She had one son, Axel, who was in Oregon, and three daughters who remained in Finland and married there. One daughter was named Ida and another was named Sanna.

She was alive in 1930. She was in Helsinki in the early 1900s and probably before that.

If anyone has access to anything they could look up, I'd appreciate it.

Thank you Art for taking the time to send all that information. It was very thoughtful.

What I am hoping to do is get info on Axel's mother and sisters in Finland eventually.

Best regards.
