I have a book called "Lampin Lestin Suvut 1684-1900." It has genealogical records from the Lestijarvi & Toholampi areas. I would be glad to do look-ups.

Hi Carol,
If you get on Ancestry.com, public member family trees, someone has a tree started for Juha Nisula. You do not have to subscribe to Ancestry, from what I understand, to view the Family Trees. :)
Here is the 1930 Census for John Nisula. I'll see what else I can find for you.

Hi Carol,
I think this is the passenger record of the Nisula family.

Hi Denise,

Thank you for all the information. I am hoping to find additional information on them from the Toholampi records since these are not yet available on Hiski.

Thanks again for all of your help! I appreciate it very much.

Hi Carol,

Attached ( I hope) are a couple of pages that will help you some. You will need to do some translating, but some helpful things to know:

*= birthdate, + = date of death, vahn = parents, vih = marriage

It looks like your ancestors are show in Laitala #37b, 38 & 39 and Nisula #64.

It looks like Juho Heikki came to America in 1892, but returned to Finland for a few years, then back to America with his family in 1896 (except for Zenia, who probably stayed with relatives for a couple of years, until 1898). The word "paloi" is near the date of death that you have for Rosa Familia, but I cannot find a translation for that to know if that may be the cause of death. If you need any other help let me know. Good luck!

Hi Steve,

Thank you very much. The information is exactly what I was looking for. I had no problem printing it.

Thanks again for you help.

paloi means burnt, burned, consumed in fire

Thank you Kaj for the translation. This was for a 2 year old child. How sad.

Hi Steve,

I'm from Toholampi and my relatives from my mother's side are mainly from Lestijärvi and Toholampi. I'd be interested in that book "Lampin Lestin Suvut 1684-1900." Where I could buy it?

Hi Ruokoja,

I bought it through Seija Ring in Lestijarvi. She was very helpful to me. Her email address is:

Seija Ring <seija.ring*lestijarvi.fi>

Good Luck!

Thanks, Steve!

Who would have guessed: Seija is my relative, not very close, though. :) I will call her and ask about the book.

Ps. I have books called "Juuret K&#228;lvi&#228;ll&#228; 1688-1809" and "Juuret K&#228;lvi&#228;ll&#228;. Autonomian aika 1809-1917" written by Uuno Huhtala. The books are about genealogical records from the K&#228;lvi&#228; and Ullava area. Maybe this message will find out the people who may need that info. It would be nice to help, too. :)
