Looking for any info on the following:
Heikki (Henry) Perala

born 8 July 1873 Finland (actually I saw in a record it could have been May 1871) in Ullu

died 19 May 1947 in Astoria, Clatsop Oregon USA

Father: John Perala

Mother: Greta unknown

He immigrated in 1891



married: 4 Jan 1896 in Astoria Oregon USA



Ogla Aloa Mattonen

born abt Oct 1873/4 in Finland

died 7 Jul 1917 in Astoria Oregon USA

Father: Eliaz Mattonsen (this name appeared on her death certificate and is very blurred, so it could be a bit different on the last few letters)

Mother: Catherine Autio

She immigrated in 1892 her sister Eda followed abt 1893 (there may have been yet another sister also)

In particular am looking for place of origin
thanks
Jeanie

Do you happened to have a scan or a picture of Elias' death certificate. I would like to take a look at the spelling of it.

Was the "Ogla Aloa Mattonen" a typo? That would be "Olga", right? Also, "Aloa" is not a real name (nor has it ever been given to a Finn). Maybe "Alma"?

You mentioned Heikki Perälä was born in Ullu. Did you mean Oulu?

This info might help search for them.
