Hi Joonas,

the files in the Finnish  Migration Institute www.migrationinstitute.fi show that Karl Alfred Björklund, born 1886 in Maxmo, left Finland 9th June 1906 and was going to travel to Boston, USA. He arrived in New York 26th June 1906. The ship manifest at the Ellis Island records www.ellisisland.org shows that he was with his brother John (Johan) Björklund and they were going to Worcester, Massachusetts to their brother Andrew Björklund. Now we know there were three brothers in the Björklund family: Johan, Karl Alfred and Anders. Unfortunately, this document does not include their nearest relative in Finland. But, in 1909, Johan Björklund travelled again from Finland to USA. This is Karl Alfred's brother. He had his wife Anna and a child with him. They were going to Johan's brother Andrew living in Worcester, Massachusetts. His address is 12 Rodney Street. Johan's nearest relative in Finland is his father Johan Björklund living in Kjorlax (it is written like this in the original document, but it may be a miss-spelling), Maxmo.

So I'd say that Johan's, Anders's and Karl Alfred's father was Johan Björklund from Kjerklax, Maxmo.

Greetings from
Maria

Hi again,

Henrik found the right parents for you, but I have an addition to the Björklund family children: looks like there were three more of them, because in 1908 Maria Björklund , 26 years, and Vilhelm Björklund, 24 years, travelled to Worcester, Massachusetts. They were going to their brother Michel (Mikael) Björklund living in 11 Rodney Street in Worcester. Their father was Johan Björklund from Maxmo,too.

Hi Maria and Henrik,
Thank both of You very much for information You have found. It is so confused as there were many Karl/Carl Bjorklund. Now I can keep on my genealogy.

It is amazing how much information you found. One problem is how and when and why Karl Bjorklund went to Arizona where his two sons were born. Of course important information is when and where he got married to Elisabeth Friedman (Fredman born abt. 1888) They both had written down born in Finland and their native language were Swedish

I shall search for Elisabeth Fredman in Malax church books. The last name indicates Malax origin.

Hi Joonas and Henrik,

I looked at Migration Institute and Ellis Island records again. In 1909 Liisa Johanna Fridman born 1888 in Vöyri (Vörå) travelled to USA. I am almost sure that she is Elisabeth Fredman/Friedman, because in 1914 two brothers, John and Henrik Fridman from Vörå arrived in New York. They were going to their brother-in-law Mikael Björklund living in address 121 East Ave, Worcester, Massachusetts. Their nearest relative in Finland is their brother Viktor Fridman in Vörå. I think John, Henrik and Viktor Fridman were Lisa's brothers. So Lisa's surname was Fridman and she was born in Vörå, not Malax. And if I have right, Karl and Lisa got married in Worcester between 1910 and 1914.

Maria
