Hi Cheryl - can't believe that it's three months since your post!
According to my daughter-in-law, her Jarvenpaa Ggfather lived on the coast north of Pori and was a ships carpenter.
She also tells me that Jarvenpaa is loosely translated as "end of a lake" - based on my visit to Finland last year there should be a lot of people with this name as there were a lot of lakes!
