Still trying to find info about my grandfathers family..We know he came to theUS from Finland as I have his naturalization papers( 1888) but dont know when he came. Thought I had found his family in Finland on HisKi database but now not sure.We found a picture in my fathers belongings..on the back was written Fanny Nyland 91 4th Place, Brooklyn. I found her on 1915 New York State Census living at that address with an aunt and uncle named Gustus and Elizabeth Nyland..Gustus may be a brother of my grandfather, Carl E.Nyland. It shows Gustus was a blacksmith. The 1930 Census shows him on 5th St and listed as Gustava born about 1866and immigration year 1875.My grandfather changed his name to Erickson in 1890 and went to India as a missionary in of the Missionary Alliance papers show his fathers name was John Erik. He met and married Violetta Case while there. If anyone knows this family I would appreciate hearing from you and would be happy to share information.
