Looking for Otto Wilhelm Hagström in Eurajoki & Rauma
« on: Oktober 03, 2008, 04:15:52 pm »


I have recently learned from a researcher at the Institute of Migration that a person matching my great-grandfather's name, Otto Wilhelm Hagström, is found on the Finnish Seaman's Records at the Finnish Genealogical Society website. The records show this person as being born 1865 in Eurajoki parish and as a seaman at the Rauma Seaman's House in the 1880s who jumped ship in Cardiff.

I have made inquiries a few weeks ago to both the Eurajoki parish church & the Provincial Archive at Turku, but no response as yet. Would anyone on this forum have info about Eurajoki parish & family name Hagström on their database?

Any help most appreciated!
