Location of Puumanki, Finmark

Recommended Posts

I am trying to find the location on a map of Puumanki, Finnmark.  It was settled in 1870s and 1880s by Finns going north to the Arctic Sea.

My family Nevala lived there but I cannot find it on any map.  I think the location is currently in Russia but would have been in Finnmark then.

Many thanks.  Just what i was looking for!

I am also looking for a Parish Register for Pummanki for the 1877 - 1895 years when it was in Norway.  My grandfather was born there and I can find no records.  Erick Nevala born 28 Aug 1887 and his siblings.

As I understand it, this area was never Norwegian, but historians must correct me if I am wrong.

I searched for Erick in the church books for Vardö and Vadsö parishes with no luck in finding him.

All church books in Finnmark: https://media.digitalarkivet.no/kb/browse?page=1&counties[0]=20&start_year=&end_year=&text=

 

Is it not more likely that this family used the church(es) in the Petsamo area, since I understand they were Finnish? Even if the books from this area are not fully transcribed and digitalized in HISKI, maybe the books are scanned by the genealogical society in Finland?
