Just trying to find the name of the parish that my Grandparents came from.
On one document, my Grandmothers Passport it said, "the parish of Piteä,
Sweden. I know Piteä to be a town right? But not a parish??? Does anyone
have the names of the Parishes in Piteä?
Elin Kristina Nilsson born March 12, 1983 (in Piteä) I believe. - ( Has
siblings brother Alof , and a sister Margret could be more of them?) must be
born near her birthrate. <+ or - 10 years>
Knut Axel Gollhils Tjärnkvist. (birthrate unknown, but he died in Sweden
from the flu in 1918)
They had one son (my father) Axel Olaf Tjärnkvist born December 17, 1917.
And in 1922? 1923? My grandmother and father (possibly her brother and
sister too) migrated to Canada (originally WAS suppose to be the USA I
believe) They landed I believe in Quebec. Her FATHER ( name unknown) was in
Chicago USA and I believe that was her intention was to go down there to
meet him. BUT..... she took a "wrong turn" and ended up in Kenora, ON,
We are coming to Sweden in two years. So anyone out there that might be
able to help out, it would be GREATLY appreciated. I have subscribed to the
online parish listing in Sweden, and I will have to wait and see what
happens there or if they allow me to obtain the information. I need to find
out the right parish.
God bless all, and thank you.
