Surnames: Ketola, Wahtola
My Great Grandmother's name was Ida Wahtola. She had 3 sisters Olga, Lizzy, and Helmi. She also had a brother but I don't know his name. They came here in the 1890's from Finland. My Great Grandfather was Victor Ketola but I don't know anything about any of his family. I know he also came here from Finland in the 1890s. All my family came here through Elis Isl. I beleive my Great Grandfather is buried in Iron River. Oulu was such a tiny town and all who lived there were Finnish. I would like any info anyone may have on my family or the area in which they lived. Thank you for any help.

Thank you Alicia!

My Mom told me she thought her Grandparents came to America in the 1890s and was sure they came through Elis Island. My Mom was Marge. Jennie was my Grandmother. Now I have a date I can go by.
Aunt Vienna died right after her mother Ida died. No one knew why.

Thank you again!
