I am looking for descendants of Ernst (Arvid) Johansson Björk born 28 April 1900 in Norra Vallgrund, Replot, Finland. Ernst emigrated to Canada around 1920-22. He lived in Nanaimo BC and was married to Selma Elisabet Ehn born 25 October 1901 in Korsholm, Finland. I think they got two children, one son and one daughter named Georgina. She was married to a guy calld Bud and they got six children; Jakeline, Marreen, Glen, Dennis and the twins Tom and Tim.

The fact about Ernst family I have got from a couple old letters from 1970-70 which belongs to my grandma. Ernst was her uncel. I am not sure about all the names.

I hope someone can help me whith some information.

Klyne! Yes, it must bee the right person. The marrigedate is the same that I´ve got. I shall give the two names in yellow.ca a try. Thanks for the information.

Denise! I´m not sure that it´s the right person. Ernst was born in Vallgrund in Finland not Köping. His fathers name was Johannes "Johan" Norrgård. Thanks anywhy.
