Can someone verify date of birth of Kaisa Eriksdotter Laukkonen, possibly born as Katharina Elisabeth? I found one in a rippi in Kortesjärvi (Purmojärvi, Laukkonen #10), but births stop before 1862 on FFHA. Birth given as 26 Jan 1862 to Erik Jakobsson Laukkonen and Maria Eriksdotter Ylikoski. She married Johan Henrik Palm of Alahärmä and they later emigrated to Iron county, Michigan. Records in US as to her real name are varied. Sometimes Katherine, Katie, Eliza, always Kaukkonen. Birth year found anywhere from 1857 to 1862. Attached is the rippi image, but it's not too clear. Unfortunately that whole rippi isn't too clear.
Thanks, Karen

Thank you, Ian. I see I made an error in my post, should be Laukkonen not Kaukkonen. Your image is much clearer. I just wanted to find her actual birth entry to see if she is indeed the one who married Johan Palm. They had two sons before emigrating, Johan in 1885 and Gust in 1888 born Alahärmä per their records in US.

Alahärmä CB 1887-1896: http://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/sivut/jasenille/paikat.php?bid=9420&pnum=852
Alahärmä records seem to state incorrect place of birth (Ylihärmä) for her.

I can't open the attachments. They're asking for a user name and password. I can only view the free records. I don't have a subscription.

Later one not yet free, but here's the content for this family:
Itt. Juha Heikki Majanp Palm 8/9 1855
Vo. Kajsa Erkintytär 26/1 1862 Ylihärmä [sic!]

Children can be found in HisKi, Alahärmä. That's how I found the correct pages ;)

Yes, the two sons I had found in US records. With your help I was able to find the records on the free pages. Johan Henrik (Juha Heikki) was born öä to Maja Isaksdotter Autio 8 Jul 1855. This family did not fare too well in Michigan. Son John died of TB and Gust of alcohol poisoning. There is a daughter recorded as Mary S on the 1900 census, but I can't trace her after that. She may have been named for the Sanna Maja who died 1894?? Thank you again most gratefully.
