Hello!

I am looking for my relatives, who imigrated in America in the beginning of
the 1900 centyry.

My grandmother`s father imigrated in America year 1905. He´s name was Isak
Saarinen. He was born in Siikainen, Finland
14.7.1873 and he left his family, wife and 3 children here in finland. His
wife´s name was Fiina and she was born 22.4.1871 Siikainen, Finland.
He´s childrens name were Josefina Pauliina. Iida Sofia and Lempi Lyydia. Ida
Sofia (born 16.1.1899 Siikainen) is my grandmother and my father´s mother.

In passanger lists to America (Ellis Island) I have found, that Isak
Saarinen really came to Usa. He´s destination was Minnesota, Cloquet.

In the 1970 century there were visitors from Usa in Siikainen to the place
where my grandmother was born and they said that they are relatives, but
any other information I do not have. They were from Michigan, Bruce
Grossing.

I am also looking for Frans Henrik Männistö, born 18.11.1873 and his wife
Aleksandra Männistö born 1.12.1870 Siikainen, Finland.
Aleksandra was my grandmother´s father´s (Isak Saarinen) sister. Her husband
Frans Henrik Männistö imigrated first to America year 1901 and in the year
1902 Aleksandra and their two children Alma Lyydia (b. 19.5.1998 Isojoki,
Finland) and Armas Anselm (b. 6.5.1901Isojoki, Finland) followed husband.
Any more information about them I do not have.

Please, if anyone has some information about these people I would be very
happy to hear.

Thanks you Art for your information. The passangerinformation was the same that I already had, but the passportinformation was not the same. Isak Saarinen's birthyear was not the same.

Hello Liisa,

There is another Isak Saarinen listed in the passport records with 1873 as the correct birth date, which may be him, but the marital status is listed as single. Also the passport date is listed as 1904, not 1905 as in the previous record (see below).

(It would be helpful to know Isak's full name)

Last name: Saarinen
First names: Iisakki Juhonp.
Other names: *
Date of birth: . .1873
Marital status: 1
Religion: Lut.
Occupation: Itsell.
Home parish: Siikainen
Province: TUR
Passport date: 08.12.1904
Passport number: 2240
Passport valid (year:month): 5:0
Destination: USA
Passport issued by: TUR
Remarks: *

I also noticed in the original ship manifest of Ellis Island records that Isak's ship was changed from the "Majestic" to the "Cedric". His contact in Cloquet, MN was Arthur Leppänen.

I'll keep looking.

Thanks again for your information. I know for sure, that Isak Saarinen was born 14.7.1873 and his full name was Isak (Juhonpoika) Saarinen. So the last information from you is right.
