Surnames: Nyland, Nylund, Mattson, Backlund
My grandfather Isaac (Isak) Nyland born April 1870 in Finland married Sanna Kathrina Mattson abt. 1892 in Finland. Isaac came to U.S. in 1893 and settled in Minnesota, Katherine came later in 1895, went to MN, a son was born abt. 1897 to 1899 in Hibbing, MN. 1900 Montana Census shows the family and a brother of Katherine (Jacob Mattson) living in Neihart Montana. The information I need is what town that Isaac and Katherine came from in Finland, they spoke the Swedish language. Isaac changed his name to Nyland when he came to the U.S. I don't know what his last name was when he left Finland.

Many of the Nylund's lived in the Ostrobothnia region of Finland. You may wish to consult the Genealogical Society of Finland for more information; they are on the World Wide Web and are very helpful. Some of your ancestors probably lived in Kvevlax. For example, Jacob Jacobsson Nylund married Maria Beata Jonasdotter Hjort in Kvevlax on 8 December 1844. My great grandfather was born in Kvevlax on 19 December 1869 and came to the U.S. in 1889. His name was originally Alfred Anders Johansson Svarvar, but he changed his last name to Nylund. He likely knew some of the Nylund's who lived in Kvevlax. Interestingly, his oldest son, Oscar (born 18 May 1894 in Hancock, Michigan; died 2 September 1936 in Portsmouth, Ohio), married Josephine Boutin, who was born either in Hibbing or Chisholm, Minnesota, in 1900 or 1903 (I haven't been able to confirm the date).
