Does anyone have family they are searching for that came from Kivijarvi Finland?
My fathers parents both came from there.
Alfred Nelson, and Sylvia Marie Piispanen.
They came to the Boston area, settled in West Quincy, where they were married Jan 1908,
Alfred died in 1941, and Sylvia in 1978.
They had one son(my dad) Arvo who died in 1952.

Karoline Kinnunen was my great grandmother(grandmothers mother) and her father was Laurie Piispanen, who I believe came to Boston in 1893 or so maybe on the SS California(n),
My grandmother and all but 1 of her sibblings came to Boston too by 1900.

Frank Nelson, Hjalmar Nelson, (his wife Selma>
Some records I've gotten say Selma was Alfred's wife but that is wrong, both couples lived near each other in West Quincy, so there probably was an error in taking the inf, by census taker.
