About Anselm Edström / Ekström

Sven Lokko has most probably misunderstood the family name in his memoirs. Anselm's surname is probably something different than Edström, because no such can be found.

http://aforum.genealogi.se/discus/messages/44/101444.html?1167427910 "Jag hittar ingen Edström i varken Nedertorneå eller Haparanda". "...jag är säker på att Sven Lokka har missufattat namnet det kan vara Ekström ,Eklund,Edholm eller liknande men jag sätter min tilltro att någon av er släktforskare löser detta ,jag är verkligen imponerad av den kunskapen ni visat prov på i dom här sidorna."

Anselm worked as a laborer at a sawmill on the Kola peninsula called "Berggrens såg & Hyvleri" which was owned by a Swedish family called Reinius.


He returned to Haparanda with his eldest son Hilting in the summer 1921 with the intention of getting papers for the rest of his family. The borders were closed, however, and his wife Greta got stuck with their children at Kuklina on the Tuloma river. Three children died of hunger and disease that winter, only Helga and Greta herself survived.
