    Question Was Korsnäs Always a Swedish Enclave?

    Always updateing my ascestry in which all of my family comes from Eastern Prussia except for one;my Great Great Grandmother on my Fathers side.Originally we thought She was from Norway (Name Larsson) but analisis of her Lutheran confirmation Bible from the 1850's reveals that it is not in Norwegian but Swedish and being born in the town of Korsnäs which is now in Finland.Anna Larsson married my Gr Gr Grandfather who was a German professional hunter and eventually a fur trader who traveled in Scandinavia a lot.Eventually they came to the USA.My question is ;was Korsnäs always a Swedish enclave and where did their origins originate?

    Korsnäs is considered a Swedish enclave.

    The street-names etc. are all in Swedish, and Swedish is the official language.

    It's just on the border as well.

    Please don't confuse the terms "nordid" and "nordic".

    Ok...

    Something that might have to be said here thought, just because certain finns got swedish last names doesnt mean they are ethnically Swedish. The swedish minority in Finland that exists today might see themselves as a minority in Finland but most of them are just south western finns that changed their name to a Swedish one to get a higher status. I would say "Swedes" in Finland are about 1/4 Swedish by blood.

    She could be ethnically Swedish thought.

    Southwestern finns is alot more nordid then their north eastern countrymen.
