Hello,
Could someone tell me if the name Jooseppi (in Finland) would normally be changed to the name Joseph in America, or would there be another name possible? I am looking for my great-grandfather, Anselm Yli-Kuusijärvi's brother, Jooseppi, born 1883 in Parkano, Finland. He came to America, probably Michigan, June 11, 1906. I found his other brother, Konstantin, born 1 Feb. 1878 (Parkano) in Wakefield, Michigan as Constine Jarvi, immigrated 3 June 1902.

Thank-you,
Denise

Hi Sokko,
My great- great- grandparents were Juho Kustaa Yli-Kuusijärvi, b. 15 August 1843 d. 15 October 1922, and Amanda Maria Matintytär Vänhätalo, b. 7 December 1844. Their children were:

Anselmi Yli Kuusijärvi, b. 11 December 1880, d. 2 March 1918 in Crystal Falls, Michigan.

Konstantin: b. 12 Sept. 1873 d. 6 May 1874
Juho Kustaa b. 21 Dec. 1870
Nestori b. 1 July 1875
Konstantin b. 1 Feb. 1878
Jooseppi b. 30 Nov. 1883
Eemeli b. 11 July 1887 d. 30 Oct. 1887

They were all born in Parkano at Yli-Kuusijärvi farm.

Konstantin, born 1 Feb. 1878 and Jooseppi, b. 30 Nov. 1883, went to America, as well as Anselmi, my great grandfather. I do not have any information on a Wilhelmiina Sofia or a Selma Yli-Kuusijärvi (Vänhätalo). I still do not have all information on either the Yli-Kuusijärvi or Vänhätalo ancestries, so they may be related somehow. I wish I knew more to help you. I do have other Vänhätalo names in my family tree such as Eefraim, Jooseppi, Kaarle Kustaa, Karolina Vilhelmiina, Kustaa, Maria Eufrosyyne, Matti Benjamin, Severina, and Viktor. If I find any information on your Wilhelmiina Sofia and Selma, would you like it, or do you already have information on them from America? What was their father's name?

Sincerely,
Denise

Hi Denise and Sokko,

This is a family I have followed up in Parkano church books as far as I could ( 1930 that is ) and don´t know anything about Selma and Wilhelmina Sofia! This is really odd because Selma seems to have emigrated 1912, according to the Institute of Migration.
In addition to the children Denise mentions, there was Maria Eufrosyyne b. 21st Nov 1867 in Parkano, d. 28th July 1909 in Parkano. She married David Järvenpää, later Hakala b. 1st Oct 1858 in Kankaanpää. They had several children of whom at least a couple have also emigrated. Have I sent this info to you Denise?
The parents were Juho Kustaa Yli-Kuusijärvi b.15th Aug 1845 d. 15th Oct 1922 and Amanda Maria Vanhatalo b. 7th Dec 1844 in Ikaalinen Raivala village Vanhatalo farm. Amanda lived in the farm in her old age and was still alive 1930. They had a foster-son Yrjö Nestori Ylikoski b. 13th Dec 1909 in Parkano who moved to Tampere 20th Feb 1924.
As far as I know, a new family settled the farm after Juho Kustaa and Amanda because all their children moved away, either in Finland or abroad.
I am really surprised hearing about the girls and will visit the library as soon as I can to find out who they were! Unfortunately church records available there only until 1899.

Dear adfsparky

It would be nice to know what happened to those girls, because only information I have is that they did emigrate to USA. The name of the father was David Vähätalo and mother´s was Maria Emelia Itähalmes. At the year 1950 Maria was still living at the farm.

Hi again,

I checked the church books in my local library ( they go as far as 1901 ) and at that time Selma and Wilhelmina Sofia were still living in Vähätalo farm in Lapinneva village. It looks like there is no connection to the original Ylikuusijärvi farmers ( at least not one that I know of ). I wonder if theirs is the same family that lives in the farm today? As Denise ( adfsparky ) well knows, I visited the farm summer -05 to take some photos and had a short chat with the current farmer´s wife. Are you related to this family, Sokko?

Hi

I am doing the research for my brother-in-law. His family comes from Parkano and Ikaalinen and some of them have emigrated to USA.

Hi Sokko,
Do you have more information on the sister's such as marriages (surnames used in America)? I find nothing on the Ylikuusijärvi surname in Minnesota, nor do I find any deaths searching Becker County, Minnesota with the death years and searching with just first names Selma and Wilhelmina.

Hello my dear friend, Merja!

Yes, Merja went beyond my wildest dreams researching the Ylikuusijärvi family for me, and actually went and took pictures of the area and farm! Made me feel I was right there, which made it even more special!
It was heartwarming to see where my great grandfather, Anselmi YliKuusijärvi lived. Attached is just one of the many pictures she sent me of the house. Thank-you for checking on Sokko's family and how they relate to the Ylikuusijärvi farm.

Best Regards,
Denise (adfsparky)

Hi Denise

The rumor says that Wilhelmiina´s lastname would have been Linbom ( or something like that) and she was called Minnie and Selma´s was Lahti or Latto.
The area they lived I don´t know and nothing much more. They used the name Yli-Kuusijärvi when they left Finland.

Hi Sokko,
Here is Selma Latto on the 1930 Census. The year of birth and immigration are a bit off from what you have. She is on line 37.
