I've been searching for my grandmothers grandfather who was Johan Arvid Pelto born on 06 dec,1877 in Lappi, Finland. He was married to Ida Maria Putaala and they had a son (my great grandfather), Eino Vilhelm (born 27 sep, 1899 Kemi). The father of Johan Arvid was Pehr Pelto, who moved to Norway. The only information about Johan Arvids later days is that he moved to the United States, I don't know what happened between him and Ida Maria, did they got divorced or what made him to leave his family in Finland. Could it be so that your grandfather and my great-great-grandfather are the one and the same person?
