Re: Mission: Finding my grandmothers birth-home

Ah, I didn´t think that Arrojago could be a farm name, of course, thank you! Me and my father are back from our trip to Viljandi now, it was great to go there, especially with my father being able to get us around so well with the language :) Unfortunately we didn´t have time to go out on the countr...

Re: Mission: Finding my grandmothers birth-home

I was also trying to find the farm of my great grandfather Jüri Aidas. He is my fathers fathers father... so on the other side. Their family also come from Viljandi originally, and I found that he was born in Vana-Tänassilma. (His father, Jaan, possibly have some connections to a Raudseppa farm in t...

Re: Mission: Finding my grandmothers birth-home

Tere and thank you for the fast response! Actually I think the second link you sent is helpful. My grandmothers name was Melanie Dorbek, but she was also called Maali (her parents had converted to greek-orthodox, so she was both Maali and Melanie). And Felix Dorbek is my grandmothers half-brother, s...

Mission: Finding my grandmothers birth-home

Tere! I hope you may be able to get me in the right direction here. I´m looking for the address where my grandmother grew up in Viljandi. She emigrated to Sweden in 1944 and now I´m trying to find more information about her life. Also, me and my father are travelling to Viljandi on Thursday, so I wo...

Obituary/järelehüüe and cause of death

Tere, Can anyone help me how to find obituarys? (Järelehüüe in estonian I think it is). Is there a digitalized archive from the news papers or would that be available on microfilm? In particular, I´m looking for my great grandfather Jüri Aidas. He was born in Vana-Tänassilma, Viljandi, 9 april 1863 ...

Re: Aidas, Elblaus, Dorbek and Kärk families

Yes since the parents have the same names in the marriage record, a Marri born on that day has to be the right one, it can´t be a coincidence! I wonder why she would have changed her last name, she wasn´t married before according to the marriage record. Does it say "Torrimo knecht Jürri Torbek" and ...

Yes I merged the profiles already. There was enough matching family connections and I thought the birthyear and name must be similar. The only thing a little confusing was it said somewhere Jaak was Joachims son?

No unfortunately I have no idea when they were supposed to be danish. It´s just something my grandfather told my father about my grandmother. After she had died and before I was born... So not that many clues to go by!
