Titel: primary sources for oldest records: Lehmoinen
Skrivet av: Norman Johnson skrivet 2019-07-20, 03:06
First posting, so apologies for breaking any rules! I am a descendant of Bertil Henriksson Lehmoinen (1701-1788). I've read in many places that he, in turn, is descended from Olof Koo Lehmoinen. I can find tax records for Olof Koo, but so far nothing that documents relationships with subsequent generations. I'm curious as to what the primary sources are that link Olof Koo, ultimately, to Bertil.

Secondary sourches can be found here:

Some of it should be possible to confirm from primary sourches

Bertil Henriksson Lehmoinen lived in northern Värmland. The earliest record I have is his marriage 26 Dec 1729 in Fryksände parish. For later records I have found him in the household examination books in Fryksände (1750-1752, 1752-1757, 1757-1765, 1764-1768) and Östmark (1773-1778, 1779-1787, 1788-1793), and also the entry in the Östmark Dödsbok 13 Dec 1788.


I have also found numerous records for Olof Koo Mattsson Lehmoinen in the mantalslängder. What I have been unable to document - other than from secondary sources - is the descent from Olof Koo to his (I think) grandson or great grandson Bertil. Bertil's birth is recorded as 1701 in all the HEBs; secondary sources suggest he was born in Grue parish in Hedmark. The church records for Grue only begin in 1712, so I have found no success there.

There might not even be any primary sourches. It could be based upon the unique finnish family name Lehmoinen together with the patronymic. The year 1701 could be based on the age the person had when he died. The place of birth could be based on where the family lived in that year.

Lehmä in Finnish means 'cow', and in s´Swedish 'ko'.
Though, I am not sure Lehmoinen is related to lehmä.

The sources for genealogy in the 1500s and 1600s are generally

different types of tax rolls and sometings court documents.

There is quite a lot of research on the old Finnish immigration in Värmland.
