    These two photos of the church in Overtornea are stunning. So beautiful and peaceful. My mother was from Jankisjarvi (DOB 1911) and this is the church that she attended as a child. Some of her family are buried there. I have visited the church twice, the last time was over 3 years ago.

    Is there a way to obtain copies of these two pictures?

    Nancy: My great uncle Viktor Wikstrom was the minister at the church in the early and mid 1900, his wife’s name was Dagmar. I was there when I was 14 (many years ago in 1966)–my email address is dmikko@fortmikk.alaska.com if you are interested in talking about this.
