Hi,

Searching for information on Petter Saastamoinen
b. 1880-03-29 in Kiuruvesi. He went to Canada (Ontario)
1907-01-02 (departure from England with C.P.R line ship Lake Champlain)

Any information on his stay in Canada (1907-1909).

Still searching on this one!

Found an other Saastamoinen who must have been a relative
and what I know Seth Saastamoinen didnt return to Finland
so maybe he can be found in some records in Canada.

Hi Thomas,
I tried Ancestry.com but it didn't return any results for Canada. I did see some Saastamoinen names primarily in Michigan, Minnesota and Ohio. There appears to be a message board (free) on ancestry where others have posted concerning the Saastamoinen name. You might try posting a message there.

I also tried the mormon website www.familysearch.org There are a number of Saastamoinen names showing up there and many from Kuopio. I found one Petter whose birth record was a few days off from what you listed. Death date was 1986, if I recall. Might be worth checking that site as well. Nothing for Canada though.

Thanx Kevin,

I will try the message board on ancestry.

The Saastamoinen family from North Savonia is well documented in Finland (back to 1580) but these two guys Peter and Seth and their expedition to Canada is still a mystery to me. All I know is that Peter returned to Finland after two years and that it was very close that he had brought his family to Canada (good he didnīt*).

* Peter is my daughters mm ff

I also want to wish all a Happy New Year!
