I am at a brickwall right now on only one branch of the family tree...
I'm hoping that someone can provide me with traction regarding the relatives of Tekla Lehtimäki of Soukainen, Laitila. Her 1907 passenger record (attached) appears to show that her birthplace is Soukainen and Hiski indicates that this village is in the parish of Laitila. She married Nils Henrik Henriksson (Nels Henry Hendrickson) of Hirvijärvi, Övertorneå, Norrbotten, Sweden in Negaunee, Michigan.
The US census records suggest that she was born in 1887 or 1888. I cannot find any record of her on the Institute of Migration and her birthdate is too recent for Hiski. Of course there are other Lehtimäkis heading to the Negaunee/Ishpeming area. I can only find one Tekla in the Institute of Migration system but the 1900 passport date does not match her immigration date of 1907.
If anyone can help me out regarding Tekla's siblings and/or parents, I would be very grateful. If anyone has an interest in her US descendants, let me know.
I also posted this inquiry at Finlander Forum.
