Assuming the father of your Victor was Erik, hence the surname Erikson/Erickson...

In 1867, there were 4 children named Viktor born in Kristiinankaupungin maaseurakunta - Kristinestads landsförsamling, all of whom died. None were born in 1868.

And none were born in Kristiinankaupunki - Kristinestad during 1867 or 1868.

Viktor, born 17.8.1869, parents Erik Henrik Mattsson, born 14.8.1836 and Anna Kaisa Johan Henriksdr, born 14.1.1836

Shown here with parents and siblings:

Later pages from Rippikirja, available at the FFHA members' site, shows that Viktor went to America on 11.5.1888.

His father Erik Henrik Mattsson went to Amerika in 1874/1875 and may have remained there.

How do you know that your Victor was born in Kristinestad?
