I am new to this site, and am researching my paternal grandfather's surname of Ryssy (in Finland) which changed to Rysso in Ishpeming, MI. Mikko Valentin Ryssy emmigrated to USA about 1900, and settled with my grandmother in Ishpeming about 1909. They met in Crystal Falls about 1901. He died in 1928. I have almost 100% of the information about him and his descendants here in USA. One big thing I am missing is a photograph of him. Any replies would be appreciated.

I too am interested in Michel Valentin Ryssy from Nurmo, Vaasa, Finland. I am doing research on my grandchildren's Finnish ancestors. What information do you have on his wife Esther? I will ask my son-in-law if a picture of Michel exists.

I thought I saw a reply from someone on the Rysso farm in Nurmo, but cannot find it now. I tried the church records from Nurmo, but could not find the birth of Michel Valentin Ryssy in 1868. Only found the birth of one of his children in Finland. Would like to find parentage of Michel.

It's likely the post you recall is part of the Rysso thread.
