Kolarissa koskenlaskijat vaihtuvat miehistä parhaimpiin. Yksi koskenlaskijoista on nimeltään Simo, jonka Acerbi ristii Koski-Bonaparteksi. Simo on mitä ilmeisemmin amatsonikaunottareksi mainitun Kristiinan sukulainen, jopa veli. Perhe omistaa Kolarinsaaren. Se myös kestitsee matkailijat hyvin ja tarjoaa läksiäislahjaksi saunan, pesijättärenä kaunis Kristiina.Samaiseen Kristiinaan ihastui herra Klerck, joka matkusti Lapissa 1820-21 Arthur De Capell Brooken kanssa. Brooke raportoi kirjassaan A winter in Lapland and Sweden with various observations relating to Finmark and its inhabitants (1827)
Mr. Klerck, who had not been at Kollare for a considerable time, on his arrival made inquiries respecting a person, whom he had probably been an admirer. This was Christine of Kollare, and old acquaintance of his in his younger days, when he used to make frequent journeys in the winter season to Torneå.
Christine was the daughter of a Finland peasant, and remarkable for her personal attractions, being exceedingly tall, and of a fine countenance and figure. She possessed, in addition to these, considerable humour, and vivacity of disposition. With all these attractions it is not to be wondered that, twenty years ago, when she was in the flower of her youth, she should have been celebrated by the few travellers who visited these distant parts of the north; or that M. Klerck, who speaks the language of the Finlanders equally well with that of the Laplanders, should have been a warm admirer of this young Northern blossom, who has been already celebrated by more than one traveller.
His feelings may be well imagined by those who have been similarly circumstanced, when, being on the point of preparing some little present for her, he was informed that she had lately died, after having been married some time to a respectable peasant of the wealthier class.Tornionjokilaakson sukututkimuksessa on erityishaasteensa valtakunnanrajan takia.
SSHY:llä on Pajalan rippikirja, mutta taidoillani ei Kolaria koskevilta sivuilta Kristiina-tytärtä löytynyt.
Klerck ja Brooke näkivät todennäköisesti Kolarinsaaren kirkon, joka valmistui 1818. Kuva Wikipedia.
