Surnames: GULLANS, BACK, BECK
Hello, I am researching my husband's family which is difficult because I don't speak/write Swedish. I am interested in the file you mentioned in your 2002 post. My husband is the grandson of John Alfred Beck, born Johannes Alfred Adrianson Gullans, in or near Overmark, Finland, on Augusst 28, 1891. His parents were Adrian Gabrielson Gullans, b. October 6, 1856 and died October 12, 1937; and Edla Johanna Michelsdotter Gullans, b. June 4, 1861. And that is about all I know. John immigrated to the US in an unknown time before 1912, married, had four children, and returned to Finland with his wife and his three oldest children in the late 'teens, then returned to the USA (Washington state, California and ultimately Oregon). I'd be interested in knowing why his name changed to Beck (formerly Back, with an uumlaut over the a), and any information I can obtain on his family in Finland. Thanks for any help you can give me.
