Re: Looking for relatives
Jenny Alina Jarvenpaa was my paternal aunt. I knew her well.She was born in 1898 in Oulo,Finland to Siefert and Maria (Mary) Jarvenpaa and was their first born.My father was one of her siblings along with 2 brothers amd 5 sisters. They emigrated to the U.S. to Michigan where Siefert probably worked at a copper mine. According to the 1910 Federal Census he was 40 at that time and Mary was 35.
Auntiw and Uncle Koivisto had two children.Sadly, the first died (I could tell you when, but have mislaid the photocopied page from the Bible where Auntie had recorded
births, deaths and marriages but can't find it at the moment)I will look until I find it.Alina and Axel were maried in Outlook, SK but I can't remember the date. It will be recorded on the mislaid sheet of paper.
Their second born was Elvie, who was my first cousin. She married Nsil Niemi and had three daughters, Merle, Linda and Beth. If Alina is your great-grandmother, one of these girls must be your mother.
Please contact me as I am also interested in our roots and would like to know you better. I will leave this now and hope to find the missing info.
