I am not a decendant of this family, but I have a web site for Kvensk research so I do alot of research in Northern Norway. Kvensk or Kven was the ethnic group of people who emmigrated to Norway from Finland. The Enbusk family were Kvensk. I have been compiling a database of Kvensk families and it includes the Enbusk family and Gunnari family. I will post some information here and hopefully I will have something that is helpful. I would love to have decendant information for my data base if you would not mind sending it to me:

Surnames: Ripi, Enbusk, Strømsted
you mention in a post from 2006 about a Johan Persen Enbusk marrying Else Stina Karlsdatter Ripi in 1865. Is Else also Kven? My great grandmother is Britta Kristine Karlsdatter Ripi, born 1834 in Sodankyla Finland, and I believe she is the sister of Else (Elise). Britta married Statius Reinholdt Strømsted, born 1833, in Tromsø. Online I found a photo of these two from the Tromsø university site, and it's labeled "mixed marriage" - she Kven and he Norwegian. I wasn't sure if indeed she was Kven or Saami.
