The database at the institute of migration does not have his place of birth or residence. There is only this:

Detailed passenger information
Last name Engblom
First names Werner
Age or age group 20
Port of departure Hanko
Place of destination Chicago
State of destination IL
Country of destination USA
Price of ticket FIM 220
Ship from Finland Urania
Date of departure from Finland 12.11.1892
Ship from England *
Date of departure from England . .9999
Ocean Line Allan Line
Port of departure in England *
List and page 1/98
Remarks Mk Johan Lind.


The last line says that Johan Lind was traveling with him - but there is no further information on Johan either.

But I found "painter apprentice" Verner Emanuel Engblom in the microfilmed passport lists indicating that he was from Helsinki. Helsinki church records show that he was born on April 28, 1867 in Lieto (a parish near Turku) and came to Helsinki in 1890.

He is found in Lieto church books as Verner Immanuel:
- birth record: (second child on the second page)
- communion book: (5th from the bottom)

If he is the correct person then his parents were teacher Johan Engblom and his wife Maria Albertina Nyström. Let me know what you think.
