Valter Dahlqvist i Sideby
Posted on November 24, 2003 at 03:17:25 PM by Bernt Lövgren

Jag söker Valter Dahlqvist, född någonstans i Sideby, söker även hans hustru.
De fick en dotter som hette Signe f. 28/10 1896 i Sideby, d 8/4 1993 i Westergård, Rosala, Hitis.
Signe åkte i unga år till Hitis och gifte sig den 10/1 1922 med fiskaren/jordbrukaren Axel Leander Andersson f. 28/7 1894 i Rosal, Hitis, d. 25/4 1942 enligt Hitis förs.
Tacksam för alla tips.

Terve Bernt! Valter Dahlqvist med familj verkar vara en sådan rackare som är svårfångad. Jag har försökt att hitta honom, men i litteraturen om Sideby finns han inte. Lika lite har jag hittat honom i någon släktutredning. Den enda utvägen verkar vara att ta kontakt med pastorskansliet i Sideby...

Ps. Om Allan Franzén fortfarande är kyrkoherde kan du nå honom på:

Allan Franzén, TD, DI, docent i praktisk teologi (missiologi) vid Helsingfors universitet, docent i praktisk teologi vid Åbo Akademi.

Harvey & Colleen,

Sorry for the late response. I have been away from Internet for almost two months. The names Wik and Wikman are known from Munsala, but the online church records do not cover the pertinent period. I'd recommend you to send a query to the message boards where attenders have access to vast databases of families from Ostrobothnian parishes i.e. the ´Finlander Forum´ http://finlander.eget.net/index.php (English language) and/or ´Discuss genealogy in Ostrobothnia´ http://www.qnet.fi/westside/discus/ (mainly Swedish language, but you can write in English) and/or post a query to the parish office in Munsala.

Here http://sydaby.eget.net/swe/jp_munsala.htm is an article about Munsala church village where Wiks are mentioned.

Is it possible that Anders Wilhelm Wik was in America before emigrating to New Zealand?

I found the following passenger record from the Emigrant Register of the Institute of Migration and wonder if it is your Anders Wilhelm Wik.

Hi Maureen,

Like this:

born 17.12.1864 in Piippola (from where he/she moved on 27.07.1891 to Helsinki) Declared dead by a decision of the Municipial Court of Helsinki on 11.01.1958 and the date of death has been determined as 01.01.1958. Was in the records as a member of the Kallio congregation, unmarried.

Thank you very much for the translation. It helps me tremendously. I know I may be pushing my luck but do you have any idea where I could contact someone about the Kallio congregation. I'm trying to track down information on my great-grandmother.

Thanks again!

Staffan, thank you so very much for your help. I have sent an e-mail to the parish to see if they could provide some guidance on my next step in tracing my great-grandmother. Thank you again for your help!
