My husband’s great grandfather was an Anders Ostman born about 1852 in Finland, and his brother John Ostman born about 1854? They both came out to Australia about 1870-1884,
I have lots of information on their lives here in Australia – Anders Ostman 1852-1934 and John Ostman 1854-1899.
They both stated that their father was Anders Gustave Ostman a shipbuilder in Finland.
I have just recently found a page on the KirjastoVirma website, where a Helge Ostman listed a biography of Anders Ostman (1819-1900) renowned ship builder and builder.
Go to http://www.kirjastovirma.fi/henkilogalleria/%C3%96stman_A_G
The article says that this Anders had 10 children and they followed their father in shipbuilding. I strongly feel that our family here in Australia must descend from this man in Kalajoki.
So, I would like someone who can make a link between Anders Ostman 1819-1900 and my family’s Anders Ostman 1852-1934 here in Australia. Or if not disprove any link?
