I am looking for my grandfather's sister. Her name was Hedvig Jernfors. She was born 19.12.1974 in Finland, Pyhäjärvi.
Acording to the Institute of Migration she left to America from Finland 7.9.1910.
First the ship went to England and sailed from the to America 13.9.1910 the ship was Ivernia/cunard Line.
Her destination was Worcester MA.
I did not found her from the Ellis Island pages, maybe she game to some other harbour.
If someone has any information about her I would be very thankful.
Did she marry her, had she children (their names and birthdays) when did se die.

Thank's Wilma
I think that this is right person. Hedvig's sisters name was Eriika and she lived in Oulu, so maybe it was written Riika.

If someone has some more information about Hedvig It would be very nice.
Thank's
