Trying to find more information about my Great Grandmother.  She Married Karl Edvard Ronnberg in Sweden, had one son there then immigrated to Helsinki, Finland in 1881 and eventually had 12 more children in Finland.  Her name and place of birth and death in 1941 in Helsinki is all I have.

This is a tough one unless you can speak Swedish! Perhaps you know someone who can. The following website is probably the best one for ancestors in the countries of interest to you. They are attempting to translate some of the content into English and you may have to wait for this to finish. One sneaky way round this would be to use the Google free translation tool which I have found to be very good. It will translate in both directions so you may find your best approach is to compose your enquiry in English. For best results keep your sentences short, simple, and grammatically correct. You will probably have to use Google translator again to read the reply as this is unlikely to be in English.



Good luck
