Hello everyone,
Could anyone help with finding the record of emigration from Finland of this man? I tried with limited ability to find him in the Migration Institute. I need an expert!

This is what I know from the US arrival. His Father is unknown so I'm not sure what name he may have traveled under or even what name he used in Finland - because Hiski records for his area do not go this far.

Thank you very much for any help,
Lori Pawlik

There are many Greta girls and only one other Greta Lovisa but the one above has the farm Finne plus Kovjoki isn't that far away. Perhaps this is yours?

Hi LoriAnn,
You may not be able to find the records online for Jakobs departure from Finland.
At The GSF site
click on Emigration
then click on Passenger Lists and then scroll down to
Links to web pages containing rough summaries of the contents of passenger lists:
Records for the Cunard Line & other unnamed companies don't start until 1896.

At GSF, Emigration, Passport Lists scroll down to the chart which
explains which records are held for different counties and which years are online. The Migration Institute may hold the records
but they may not be online.

I have found a site with some information and a picture of the ship City of Paris Jakob travelled on from England to America

Just wanted to say thanks for the help. This is a big missing blank. I neglected to think that those passport/emigration records couldn't all be online - the internet has been such a tool! But, on the off chance that someone comes across that Finnish record, I'm keeping my eyes out.
Have a great day,
Lori :)

Ok, Bert - your post and mine must have crossed - I did not see all that genealogy when I posted! I did have some of that info from Hiski, but WOW!! You filled in so many blanks. The letters that you've helped with were from Johanna - wife of 4. Jakob Gretasson Dahlvik.

4. Dahlvik Jakob Gretasson (f.17 Mar 1868-Nykarleby Kovjoki Finne;d.5 Dec 1954-Michigan Schoolcraft Manistique)
ma: Sundqvist Johanna Mattsdotter (f.16 Jul 1868-Munsala Vexala Rutas;d.4 Jan 1945-Michigan Schoolcraft Man)
5. Dahlvik Karl (f.1894)
5. Dahlvik Evert (f.1894)

One error - these two boys, Karl & Evert were twins and they were born in 1915 - Johanna was an older Mom. Evert still lives and is my Grandfather. His birthday is in 2 weeks.

Are you a member of that family? Are we related?? It would be exciting if they could send some birthday greetings!

Have a wonderful day!
Lori :D
