I am also searching for a Swedish / Finnish Palman, Pahlman, Pohlman family. My great grandmother, Eva Pohlman was born in Finland on June 12, 1884, along with a twin sister, Sophia. Her father was Benhardt Pahlman, birth and death dates unknown, mother was Wilhelmina Hyvarinen, birth and death dates unknown. What little knowledge I do have is that Benhardt served in regiment in Sweden, and that he and Wilhelmina were married there. Do you perhaps have a Benhardt in your family??
