Some of the family has spelled the name "Nyland," which is the Swedish spelling. Others have spelled the name "Nylund," the Finnish spelling My great grandfather Alfred, whose real last name was Svarvar, adopted Nylund. Some of his children changed the spelling to Nyland. My father Robert Alfred, who used Nylund, had a brother who used Nyland. The Evergreen Memorial Cemetery in Crystal Falls, Michigan, has a mixture of tombstones, some with Nyland and some with Nylund. It's interesting that most of them are related, depsite the difference in spelling.
