    This is a table created by Ritva Heinonen, from the original Finnish records. She said :

    "I have made a table of ancestors for both Anna Maria Holmberg and Maria Sofia Ruotsalainen.

    Anna Maria has two sets of grandparents - Gustaf Holmbergs parents Gustaf and Lena (Helena), and his wife Maria Lena's parents Mats Qvarnström and Helena Bertilsdotter. It was Mats Qvarnström who worked at Strömfors Iron Works."
