swedish map names

Viesti Kirjoittaja laaja » 23.08.2018 05:07

I am looking at a Moving Record/Muuttokirjoja 1777-1811 for an ancestor from Paskunda who married at St Carins/Kaarina neat Abo/Turku in December 1803. I cannot find Paskunda zooming in on my map on https://asiointi.maanmittauslaitos.fi/karttapaikka/. Is it possible it is a Swedish word as the husband's address was 'from Tammerfors'/ Tampere? There are no records available for Paskunda in the Church Records section of either Kaarina or Turun (which I assume is Turku).

SSHY member pages have available records for Kaarina, including Paskunda (later Finnish spelling Paaskunta):

If you are not a member, you find the same from NA site: http://digi.narc.fi/digi/view.ka?kuid=5195988
There is Anna Johansdotter b. 24/12 1783 with note: Tammerf 1803
You can search https://en-dot-digihakemisto.appspot.com/ for records on National Archives.

The only reference to the name in modern map seems to be a street address Paaskunnankatu in Turku.

Jaska, I was looking at my posts and found one among them that is not mine - this one. It's from laaja. Thought you should know in case they are waiting for an answer. Here is what my screen looks like
