Hi

I'm looking for info about my lost relative Urho Heikki Keteli/Ketelimaki, b. January 27th 1894 Alavus and d. March 6th 1933 somewhere in North America, probably in Canada.

All I know about Urho is that he moved from Finland and went to Kenora of Ontario, Canada in September 1913. I have no idea has he resided there or did he later move to somewhere else.

I would like to know that did Urho have family in North America as well as the place he lived for last.

Thanks!

Thanks! This must be same person. And I see he used name Henry - not Urho.

Interesting that he deceased in St. Louis of Minnesota - I have lots of relatives there, all descendants of people who came from Alavus county in Finland.

Hello to you too!

I'm pretty sure this is too same person. Urho Heikki Keteli was born in 1894 (I forgot to put that to my request).

Even though there is few years difference between ages, I think this is right person as there are not many Keteli's of Ketelimaki's in Finland, not to mention in North America either.
