Holmbergs in Lappfjard, Finland


Jerome Jansen

Recommended Posts

Hello from Olympia WA.  My grandfather, Johan Viktor Holmberg, was born March 5, 1851 in Lappfjard, (or, Korsback?) Finland.  He and his four brothers, Henrick, Charles, Axel, and Nicholas went to America.  His three sisters, Anna, Karolina and Clara, all stayed in Lappfjard.  My grandfather, Johan Viktor’s older brother Henrick was born in 1847.   Henrick had about five children. His son Arvid and wife Irene had a daughter, Karin.  This information is not too clear, taken from an old family diary.  I hope you might help with name spelling, birth dates and other family connections.  I looked in some church records, but I’m not very good at that.

It might be useful to start with some records. I assume that this is the family of Johan Viktor in Sonoma County, California in the 1900 Census?

The FAG record shows his birth place as Norway but the Census shows Finland.

So Anne-Lise has found the first records for your family from Finland, that I have seen. It gives you a start on the spelling used in Finnish records. If you click on the link she provided you will find even more information and spelling . 

 

I see that you have a Ancestry.com Tree so I assume you have a subscription as well. 

 

Here is the Ancestry.com transcription of the record.

The variability in spelling on the transcriptions make finding the baptism record on Ancestry a bit of a chore, but this is likely Cara Sofia in 1848.

 

Unfortunately it seems that the transcriptions end there on Ancestry as a search for 1850 any name does not turn up any names.

In case your interested in adding some source records to the Norwegian side of the family, here is some information on the wife of Johan Vitor. She is called Ragne in the 1865 Norwegian Census. She is living with her family in Hole Parish, Buskerud County. Ringerike is a larger District and consist of several parishes including Hole.
