Hi - My great grandfather on my mother's side was just "great grandpa Koski" to us. After my parents divorced (in 1988, when I was 8), my mother stopped contacting us... and we lost touch with this beloved great-grandpa. I am compiling my family tree, and my mother's side is almost entirely empty; I'd love to fill in details about my great-grandpa Koski, who has surely passed away by now.
Here are some facts, if you can help:
- He was from Finland --- whether born there or first-gen Canadian, I'm not sure. - He loved butterflies! He had a strange glass-topped table in his living room/dining room that had all these butterflies with their Latin names in the top, under the glass. - He had at least one daughter, who married and took the name Callen/Callan - He had at least 3 granddaughters, one of whom was named Diane, who married and took the name Wiebe - He had at least 5 great grandchildren - He was alive as of April 1988
I think he contacted my dad (Larry Wiebe) once after the divorce.
I would love any help. I know I haven't given much, but maybe this'll ring a bell for someone?
