Your Name: Linda
Your Email Address:
Surname: Norbakka, Anna L.
Finland Location: Kortesjarvi
Birth Date : 25 Dec 1881
Death Date: 22 Jul 1965 (USA-MA)
Comment about Family: Am looking for any information on my grandmother, Anna Norbakka (Norbacka, etc.) and her family who lived in Kortesjarvi, Vasallanni County, Finland. She was born 25 Dec 1881 (although it is possible that another date close to that is possible)and she came to America 1898-1904 (she married George Clark in Quincy, Mass in 1905).  Two sisters also came: Sanna and Minnie (Wilhwlmina) and possibly a brother John. Sanna died in her early 20s in Fitchburg, MA. Minnie married Henry Juntunen and lived in Minnesota. I believe there was another sister who remained in Finland. However, I would love to know more about the rest of the family, especially in Finland.  Her parent's names were: Father-Eric Norbacka, Mother-Adolphina Kaski.

I would like some information about Axcell Niemi who came to Northern Ontario, Canada in about 1924. He brought with him his three year old daughter, Rauni Niemi born 11 Feb. 1921. This family is part of my extended family and I would very much like to know about Axcell's wife who died before he came to Canada and about his family such as, did he have brothers and sister, what were his parents names and where in Finland did he live.
Thank you in advance, Lynne Gill

Nyberg, Anders



1796 My Great-Grandfather was Karl August Nyberg born in Aland, Finland. I would like information on his father, Anders Nyberg, born 1796 in Lapptrask, Aland. He died Aug. 22 1854 in Skarpans, Aland. Karl August Nyberg also had two sisters, Anna Josefina Nyberg, born Dec. 4, 1839 in Bertbyvik, and Amanda Mathilda Nyberg, born Feb. 25, 1848 in Skarpans, Aland. These three Nybergs have over three hundred family members in the U.S.A.. Would like any information on Aland family




Nyberg, Carl August Bertbyvik, Saltvik, Aland

January 1841

Looking for any info on my Great Grandfather, He went by Nyberg, but his birth name was, I believe, Kolteen. His mother had remarried 1847, Anna Stina Ericsdotter born 1811, Finland, to Anders Nyberg, and he was born 1796, Finland. My records say, Carl's father was killed, and I have nothing else on his father. Who was Carl's father, and do you know how he was killed, war? All most all of our clan lived in Aland.

Nygard Kalax

left for America late 1800 to early 1900's  Looking for genealogy info on my grandmother, Maria Nygard from Kalax, b 18 Sept 1881. She left Finland for America when she was in her early 20's (unable to find when or ship information). Her father was Alex who also left for America after his wife's death (Maria Vliens), but before Maria. He was possibly from East Yttermark. Maria also had a sister Anna who I understand eventually returned to Finland. Married name possibly Klockers or Klockeus?
