I have 7 generations of my fathers mothers side of my Finnish family. I am wondering if you or anyone can help me learn more.
Pekka Laajal do Dec 27, 1939. Her parents were Hilma Paananen and someone named Laajala. ?
Other surnames: Piispanen Paananen, Himanka, Hakkarainen Heinonen, Kahelin, Karkinen, Kinnunen, Leppanen, Makiaho, Muhonen, Nelson, Nikkarikoski, Orava, Paavola, Pekkarinen, Petila, Rekonen, Tuickainen, Turpeinen, Urpalainen
Both of my grandparents were born in Finland. My grandmother on Feb 17, 1888 in Kivijarvi, to Lars Piispanen and Karoline Kinnunen, she had 4 siblings Einar, Wilho, Aliina, and Impi(the only one I ever met). Lars parents were Elias Piisapnen and Ebba Kahelin
Hope this isn't to confusing. Just listed the other names so it may be easier to see a connection. Any help with them would be great, but its really Laajala (Pekka) and her family that I am interested in mostly.
Thank you so much for any help available.
