I'm looking for the parents of Johan Johansson Nygård-Smedjebacka, b. 24 Dec 1861, Terjärv. He was married to Hulda Sofia Andersdotter Viitavesi. According to HisKi the parents were Johan Mattsson Smedjebacka and Lovisa Johansdotter. But I can't find a Johan Mattsson Smedjebacka b. before 1840 in Terjärv. HisKi doesn't carry marriage records for the time period, so I'm not having much luck. Does anyone have the correct names of parents and their birthdates? I didn't find them in Talko.

Hello June,

The parents of Johan Johansson Nygård-Smedjebacka should be:

Johannes Mattsson Smedjebacka-Ravall, born 20-03-1836 in Terjärv married 06-08-1857 in Terjärv Anna Lovisa Johansdr Smedjebacka Lytts, born 23-05-1831 in Terjärv.

Släkten Lasses i Terjärv lists only 2 children:

Anna Greta Johansdr Svartsjö Smedjebacka, born 08-02-1858 and Matts Johansson Smedjebacka, born 19-02-1860.

HisKi lists the following children:

- Anna Greta, born 08-02-1858
- Matts, born 19-02-1860
- Johan, born 24-12-1861
- Sofia, born 10-05-1866
- Maria, born 31-10-1869

Two other children died at birth or were miscarried (11-02-1864 and 06-07-1864)

Hi June,

Lassas database in Talko seems to have the marriage of Johan Johansson Ravald and Hulda Sofia Andersdr Viitavesi.
Name confusion :confused:

Art, I have lots of Smedjebacka names, but someone I don't have that one!

Jaska, I think the name probably was Ravald because I have lots of Ravald names from Terjärv.

Thanks to both of you. Now I can dig further.

June ;)

Wow, Art, thanks for doing my work for me! I find that I already have most of them in my database, but lacked the connecting links.

When Hasse Andtbacka gets back I'll ask him about Ravald and Ravall because I have many people with both those names and I'd like to be sure I have the correct spelling.

June :)
