The Bonsdorffs of Finland Updated November 15, 2001
About Our Family Research
I have been given a valuable book from my grandmother, my mothers mother. It is a complete family tree going back to 1619. The name on the cover is Bonsdorff/vonBonsdorff. This book has 140 pages with names, dates of birth and death along with pictures of people and buildings and gravesites. Some other surnames in this book are Suoja, Karjala, Korhonen, Ingelius. There is an index of names so if you think your family came from Finland or Sweden or possibly Russia I would be glad to look up a name for you. I have been looking for my fathers sisters, Blanche, Betty and Barbara Black. I know very little about my fathers side of the family. I am looking for the ancestors of William Lawrence Black born in Martins Ferry, OH in 1908. I only know that they were of the Seneca Tribe of Indians.
