Searching for Tulppos
I am trying to find out about my grandmother, Emily Tulppo, born 12/25/1889 in Haapajarvi, Oulo, Finland died in 12/20.1966 in Flint MI. Her father was Elias Tulppo born in Finland, 9/13/1863, died in MI,9/23/1937. Her mother was Anna Maria surname unknown. Emily had at least 2 siblings, Daniel and Katie/Katherine. I have not been able to locate any information about the Tulppo's in Finland nor when or how they got to America.
Emily married Adam Keranen born 7/27/1876 in Kestila Oulu Finland, arrived in USA in 1897, died 12/2/1958. This was Adam's second marriage and he had 5 children living when he married Emily. Adam and Emily had 7 children.
Any help would be appreciated. I have tried a few sites in Finland but keep running into dead ends. I just may not know the right way to use those sites or I could be lacking just one piece to ccess the information that can be found on them. I also have no access to any cenus records to check on the Tulppo's in the Upper Peninsula of MI.
