Welcome to Nykarlebyvyer!

This site deals with the history of my former hometown Nykarleby (Uusikaarlepyy in Finnish) in Ostrobothnia on the west coast of Finland. This part in English is just a tiny summary of the site in Swedish, which consists of about XXX files, YYY links and all told more than ZZZ MB.

Please let me know when you discover ”Swenglish translations” or misspellings!
