My grandmother was Sylvia Maria Piispanen, born in Kivijarvi Finland to Lauri Piispanen and Karoline Kinnunen.
She was 2nd youngest of about 6 children I think.
I know that all but the oldest came to Boston MA and settled in MA.
Sylvia came here in 1900, with her sister Impi, and older brother Vilheim(Wiliam in US) in 1900. Father was already in MA(Quincy I think) as were most of her sibblings.
I'd like name of ship date, port of dept, as well as date, and port of entry.
My grandfather was Frank Nelson. His middle name may have been(haven't confirmed this) Nikkarossi(check spelling)
His wifes name was Maria Nikula. I know Frank was also born in Kivivarvi(at least I think so). In 1912 Franks niece Tynne Nikkarossi, came to live with Frank, Maria, in W Quincy. She supposedly was an 8 or 9 year old orpahn.
I'd like information on Frank and Maria's immigration. as well.
