I am searching for information on my grandmother's parents. They were Issac Niemi and Catherine Hurro. I have been told that they were Finnish, but they were actually born in Sweden. Can you help?
Thank! Marti

Dear Marti ,
My name is John P. Niemi and I am 23 years old. I am looking for a close female family member with the last name of Niemi. I know she lived in Iowa for sometime and may have moved to the San Francisco Bay Area. I was born in San Francisco California May 6 1976. She had a younger sister however I am unsure of her whereabouts. The person I am looking for is approximately 67 years old now. If you would please think through your family members to see if my description matches yours I would be greatful. If you have any information that may assist me it would be greatly appreciated. Like you I am looking for my roots. Did you try (tons of information)

Sincerely, John P. Niemi

My g-grandfather was Toivo "Thomas" Niemi b1862 in Vaasa, Finland. Immigrated with wife Hilda Gylden. I know from research that Niemi in Finland is similar to Smith in USA .... many !!! Also Sweden controlled the area of Finland for many decades prior to 1900(?) so what country may depend on date.

Sorry , I don't have a Victor Niemi nor any
Tuomi. However his birth would be the decade of my g-father's birth. My NIEMI list is very small. So I will keep your NIEMI in the file. One never knows ???

Thanks for the response.

Hi Dan,
My grandmother married a Toivo Niemi. My grandmother
lives in the UP in Michigan. I was told this Toivo died about
3 years ago and buried in Idaho. This was a second marriage
for my grandmother. My mother believes he was from Finland.
Could he be related to your Toivo?

Yikes! I'm nearly a year late in responding!!
My great-grandparents Toivo and Hilda (Gylden) Niemi emigrated from Varrat, Vaasa, Finland in 1886. They resided in the Houghton/Hancock area at least in to the 1920s. Their 'original' surname was Hirviniemi. To my knowledge they had no children named Toivo (or Tom).
I do not have a lot of info on the Niemi's and am always looking for contacts.
