Re: Information about my Surname

In Reply to: Information about my Surname by Rosa PalÚn of 160

I live in Finland and my mothers birth-surname is PalÚn. This name is very rare also in Finland but I think it's more common in Sweden. I've heard that my mothers family is originating from Poland but already for many generations lived in Finland. I've got some information about my old Finnish anchestors from the beginning of 19th century but almost nothing before that. Konstantin Eriksson PalÚn born 1.3.1831 and his father Erik Gustafsson PalÚn are the oldest persons in my family that I've got documents of. If someone who knows about old PalÚn family in Finland reads this message please reply. I would like to know if this Polish origin is really true.
