My father´s grandmother Helena Westerlund (perhaps originally Westring) was born in mid 1800´s in Noarootsi Estonia, moved to Finland and gave birth to a daughter Olga Charlotta Westerlund b. 10.5.1888 in Helsinki, father not known. Has anyone reseached this Westerlund/Westring family?
Ystävällisin terveisin Helsingistä

Thanks to Bert-Ola's link to the database of Rickul/Nuckö Hembygsförening I found some Lena Westrings, one of whom a possible candidate to be my fathers´s grandmother – because of her age and the fact that her date of death is unknown (if she moved to Finland?):
Lena Lenasdotter Westring f. 6.6.1854
Födelsekommun: Pasklep Födelseby: Österby

In the database was also Lena´s mother http://www.rnhf.se/ancestry/show_family ... mmer=24118, sisters and grandparents, but no information about Lena´s possible emigrating from Nuckö, changing her name from Lena Westring to Helena Westerlund or her children (possibly my father´s mother Olga Charlotta Westerlund b. 10.5.1888 in Helsinki?).
In Personaalraamat for Paslepa etc. 1864-74 on page 163 I found Lena Westring f. 6.6.1854, but not in the next Personaalraamat for years thereafter.
Where could I find more information about her? I am thankful for any advice.
