All names, I believe, are from Vaasa--all except Ruuska are from Vimpeli or near there. My great grandfather was Kalle Kuusta Hiipakka (Karl Gustaf in the Swedish language church records). Traveled to USA as Kalle Hiipakka, but used the name Ranta in the US. His son and daughter (my grandmother) used the surname Halme. On the Ruuska side, my grandfather was Julius Ruuska, born 1886, possibly from Viitasaari, but I'm not sure of that. His father's name was Matti Ruuska, mother Hilda Katilani. Any info or leads would be greatly appreciated!
