Hi,
What names are you interested in? My father's ancestry is from that area.

Best Regards,
Denise

One of my forefathers, Eric Ericii Brunnius was pastor in the Torneň Parish in the latter part of the 1700s. His graduation thesis "Dissertatio gradualis de urbe Torna, eique adjacentibus paroeciis" describing the people living in the Torneň gorge is still today often referred to in discussions about life then. Unfortunaltely it is written in Latin, but one day I hope to have it translated in its entirety. At that time I will get back to you.

At least Google translate now has Latin.

A methodical move out of the city of Tornio and into the adjacent parishes.

Not too bad for a free tool.

A great tool, it has been a big help to me as I do not speak Finnish or Swedish.

Hi Barbara,
My ancestry is on Talko under Denise Heater. Look at my father's father's side.

It will have to wait till spring. The publication is on my desk in Helsingfors; I'm in Seattle. It cant be copied, its too frail, but I will try and take photos to create PDF files of the pages.
