A friend got Isaac Naturalization application from Minn. He came throught Detroit in August of 1873. It says he was born in Sweden in the 1860s. One US census says he was born 1863 another says 1854. Also says he was Finnish born in Sweden.He was Married to Ida Ritola and they lived in Ottertail County Minnesota.
Children were Nestor,Helma,Lida,Richard,Esther,Tekla,Mary,Lely
I still havent found who Isaac parents were.
Also are there any records of passengers coming through detroit in 1873

Hi Robin,
I found this on the Institute of Migration site in the Reference section. This appears to be the Isaac Frški you are researching. His place of birth is Karunki. I checked the Hiski records, but they stop at 1850. There are many Frški names listed in Alatornio, which is where I suspect Isaac is from. You can write to the parish for information on his family, or perhaps someone here can help you with that, and maybe give you further details from the book the reference is from.
I'll see if I can find any records online for passengers coming through Detroit.

Best regards,

Thank You Very much for finding that. I tried to contact the Alatornio Parish a long time ago when I was working on another Fraki Branch. Never got an answer.

Hi Robin,
I checked http://www.digiarkisto.org/sshy/ but when I got to joulu (December) 1854, the record continues on the left side of the page, but I cannot read it. There may be an Isaac there listed on the 1st day of 1855. Maybe someone familiar with reading the records could look at the page. It appears to say Isaac, and the parents are Peter? Lomakka? and ? Niskala?

Best Regards,

Here is the translation that Matti did on Finngen list for us. so I this Isaac last name Fraki or Frimodig. I dont understand. If you follow Anna through Hiski records she had a few more Illegitamte children. would they be Fraki also.wish I knew how to read this stuff

30.12.1854 1.1.1855 Zv: Anna Stina Frimodig 37 Isaac (oš:)

Although I believe the Zv should be Qv.

Qvinna Anna Stina Frimodig oškta son Isaac
