In Reply to: Mikiver; Ponamar/Halla by Helene Strömkvist of 1648

Hello Helene
Their is a book “Kabböle ester” written by Sven Boman.
The book is written in Swedish (Sven Boman was Swedish spoken). I do not think there are any english translation.
Apparently in 1906 Jaan and Leenu Mikiver (my great grandparents) and their sons, Peter, Jakob and Anton fled Estonia to Finland and settled in Kabbole. Many other families from the the Vinistu, Turbuneeme area also fled and (for example Ludvig, Aklulina, Eveline (My great Aunt) and Elvira Ponamar's are mentioned and there are many photo's included.
I have seen a copy from my cousin in Sweden.
You might already know about this book.
