Hello,

I am searching information about the Brask family, who migrated from Larsmo, Finland to Portland, Oregon.

Johan (Johannes) Brask, born Nov 6, 1864 in Larsmo Finland. Died Jul 2, 1909 in USA. Moved to USA ~ 1891-94

Wife Maria (Maja Lisa) Brask born Jul 4, 1859 in Larsmo, Finland. Moved to USA in 1908.

Daughter Maria Matilda Brask born Nov 30, 1883 in Larsmo, Finland. She moved to USA in 1903. According to Ellis Island the date of arrival wa May 04, 1904 and final destination: to father Hohan Brask, Warrendal, Portland, Oregon. Probably Maria Matilda was married Mr Larsson.

Son Emil Brask born Jul 27, 1889 in Larsmo, Finland. According to Institute of Migration Emil moved to Hibbing, MN, USA in 1905.

All information is very appreciated.
