My grandfather left Hanko Finland and arrived in US in Nov. 1892. His birthplace was listed as Russia. His date of birth...Jan. 1867.
But I have learned that Finland was part of Russia until 1918.
Can someone help me find where he was from in Finland? I am having a hard time navigating the Finnish archives
Thank you in advanced.

Hi
He was already naturalized in 1900 so he must have arrived before that year,

He is on the institute of migration in Finland but I do not have a subscription to see if a town is listed for him.

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

List and page 1/98
Remarks Mk Johan Lind.

(http://www.migrationinstitute.fi/emreg/ml_engdetail.asp?snim...)

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: http://digi.narc.fi/digi/view.ka?kuid=8627070 (second child on the second page)
- communion book: http://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/kirjat/Kirkonkirjat/lieto/ri... (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.
