Thank you very much Nordinem for the Härmä book reference.
I am seeking info on Amalia's life in the US.
I have the church parish records- sukututkimus with Amalia's birth date of of 8.1874 and death date of 1.2.1952. That date allowed me to find her death record in Lake County MN. She married Otto Alho. His death record is also in Lake Co, MN.
Amalia Nukala, was single and left Finland in 11.1900 with destination Wakefield. I can't find her on any census 1900 through 1940. Perhaps she had another marriage. I have searched through all the ancestry.com records and cannot find an Amalia/Emila Nukala + unknown surname, born ~1874 arriving in 1900. I can't find the right Otto/Olli Alho in the census either. I did find Otto Alho on a ship manifest arriving in 1911, born ~1879 from Turku.
Then they disappear. Thanks for any search tips you can give me. Amalia is a first cousin to my great grandfather.
The Montana Nukala family mentioned in this thread is on another branch of my extended Nukala family tree.
Amalia Nukala/1874 did have an uncle Kustaa/Gustaf born 1881-1958 with 3 marriages in Finland. I don't know if this Institute of Migration record is a match but I'll try to follow it. Thanks for this tip. On Hiski there are a lot of Kustaas born in 1881 in Alaharma but this Kustaa born 7.13.1881 is the only one born in Härmä Nukala.
