Hi Linda,

Do you mean Otto Pikkarainen (b. 19.4.1870 Ii, Olhava, Finland, d. 14.10.1923 North Dakota, USA) and Amanda Hamari (b. 3.4.1877, Ii, Oijärvi, Finland), d. 11.1.1961 obviously in North Dakota, USA) ?

I know two people related to Pikkarainen and Pekkarinen - both in Minnesota. Can you give more details - names, dates and places?

...and if the persons are those I mentioned, I have visited their home place in Olhava. It is still there existing with old buildings and wooden things made by the ancestors.

Visited the Pikkarainen house with my friend Chuck Penttila, his wife and his mother Shirlyn Bentley (Pikkarainen). Years ago :)

Chuck has written a book "Pikkarainen & Koitijärvi family" - Otto and Amanda can be found in it with their descendants, etc.
